Cinematographer Dudley, who has worked in films like Singham, Chennai Express and others, was recently roped in for Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas's next, marking the cinematographer's debut in Tollywood.
The latest is that Dudley has now walked out of the project. Helmed by Santosh Srinivas, the film was officially launched on November 29 at Ramanaidu Studios. According to industry sources, Dudley walked out of the project owing to creative differences between him and director Santosh Srinivas.
A source told Deccan Chronicle, "Dudley realised that the filmmakers and he were not on the same page. He felt that he would be in a tricky situation if he continues to work and the situation being such, he left the project a few days back."
Now, the makers have approached Chota K Naidu to complete the rest of the movie. â€śChota K Naidu had already committed for a couple of projects, so he had to adjust his dates accordingly. He said that he would initially join the team for a week to check out his compatibility with the unit members,â€ť adds the source.
Bankrolled by G Subrahmanyam under Sumanth Movie Productions, Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas would be sporting an eight-pack for the film. Posting a picture of himself showing off his eight-pack abs as his Monday motivation in November, Sreenivas seems to be ready for his next outing. He wrote, â€śThis time I am coming with everything they said that I couldnâ€™t have.â€ť
Nabha Natesh, who is basking in the success of iSmart Shankar, has been roped in as the female lead for the movie.
Bellamkonda Sreenivas's recent release was Rakshasudu, the remake of the Tamil thriller Raatsasan, directed by Ramesh Varma. The film, which released in August, was a box-office and critical hit. The film has music by Ghibran, while editing is by Amar Reddy and cinematography by Venkat.
