Kona Venkat, who disassociated himself from Bruce Lee's disastrous result and Akhil's debacle, is in a deadlock right now. The star writer claimed to be the central point of 300 Crores business in the Industry, in a year. But he was bashed for his rotten writings in his last releases, Pandaga Chesko, Bruce Lee and Akhil.
Apparently, the writer's reputation is in doubt now and clearly, his next offering, Sankarabharanam, which is slated to release this Friday, December 4th, has turned crucial for the writer to prove himself innocent as he claimed.
In fact, Kona himself agreed that distributors and producers lost trust on him to an extent because of his recent failures and he conveyed his angst that it has indirectly affected the pre-release of his own production venture, Sankarabharanam.
Kona bashed Sreenu Vaitla that he did not use the scenes written by him in Bruce Lee but has simply credited him for the film, which obviously kept his image at stake. He was also quick to clarify that one cannot brush Akhil's failure onto him since he was only a dialogue writer for the film and had no say in the film's story or screenplay as they were written by another writer.
Though he could pass off by blaming others for the debacles of his previous releases, he cannot escape from taking Sankarabharanam's result on to his shoulders, as he is the only person to offer story, screenplay, dialogues, production as well as directorial inputs for the film. So, we just have to wait for few more hours to know if Kona was really innocent or he was actually playing a blame game to secure his position in the industry.
