Nagarjuna upset over director Parasuram choosing Mahesh Babu over Naga Chaitanya
Reports say Nagarjuna was very irritated with Parasuram and gave the director an earful during their recent interaction
Actor Nagarjuna, who is known for his level-headed demeanor, is extremely upset with director Parasuram for choosing Mahesh Babu over Naga Chaitanya for his next, say reports. Things have taken a dramatic turn after the Geetha Govindam director, who was supposed to kick-start the principal photography of Chaitanya's film, NC 20, from April, has dropped the project after receiving a proposal from Mahesh.
According to a source, Parasuram's decision not only took Nagarajuna by surprise but also left him furious.
"Parasuram has wasted considerable time due to lack of proper planning on his part and eventually delayed the shoot of the Naga Chaitanya-starrer by a few weeks. Nagarjuna was so irritated with Parasuram's unprofessional ways that he didn't shy away from giving the director an earful recently. So chances of this 14 Reels Plus production going on floors look bleak and we can now consider the project to be shelved, unofficially," reveals the source.
Meanwhile, Naga Chaitanya will next be seen in Sekhar Kammula's Love Story, while Nagarjuna plays an NIA officer in debutant Ashishor Solomon's actioner, Wild Dog.
