Director Harish Shankar is yet to find a hero for his upcoming film titled Daagadu Mothalu and now we hear that all is not well between him and the filmâ€™s producer Dil Raju. Reports doing rounds in the tinsel town are that Dil Raju is not keen on the film being a multi starrer but the director wants to stick to his plans of making it one. This face off between the two is creating some issues with Daagadu Mothalu but it will be sorted out soon, say sources in the know. The discussion on when it should be a multi starrer or not is currently on and a decision is expected to be arrived at soon. Director Harish Shankar had reportedly got in touch with Sharwanand and Nithin for play the lead role his film but there is not clarity on what ensued as both of them are committed to the respective films on hand.
Harish Shankar made his directorial debut with the Ravi Teja and Jyothika starrer Shock way back in 2006 and had directed films such as Mirapakay, Gabbar Singh, Ramayya Vasthavayya, Subramaniyam for Sale and Duvvada Jagannadham. Of these films, Mirapakay, Gabbar Singh and Subramanyam for Sale were big hits. His last outing Duvvada Jagannadham did not do too well at the box office and the director is looking forward to score a bit hit this time around.
Dil Raju, on the other hand, a producer known to be the one with the Midas Touch, has a bunch of films in his kitty including the Mahesh Babu starrer which is being directed by Vamsi Paidapally. The film is slated for release on Ugadi next year. The plan earlier was to have it released for Sankaranthi but the makers decided to opt for a summer release to cash in on the vacation season. Pooja Hegde is paired opposite Mahesh Babu in this flick.
With Harish Shankar and Dil Raju still under discussion about the hero for Daagadu Mothalu, hope the issue gets resolved soon and the film goes on to the floors.
