Sai Dharam Tej’ recent release Inttelligent, directed by VV Vinayak failed to revive his sagging market. Despite being directed by a successful director, it was a disaster at the box office and its producer is reportedly facing heavy losses. The film has been declared as the biggest debacle in the careers of VV Vinayak and Sai Dharam Tej.
With a row of box office duds, the young actor is desperately in need of a big hit which is eluding him. He was supposed to star in a movie to be directed by Gopichand Mallieni but according to latest reports, this project has been put on hold.
Sources say that the failure of Inttelligent prompted the producer to back out of the project, following which Gopichand and Sai Dharam Tej have no other option but to put it on hold until they find another producer willing to bankroll it.
Yet another reason cited for the producer to back out is that Gopichand had delivered a flop, Winner and he doesn’t want to take a chance with a flop actor and director teaming up.
Meanwhile, Sai Dharam Tej has two other films on hands needing his attention. While director Karunakaran will be wielding the megaphone for a romantic flick which will have him in the lead, he also the Chandrashekar Yeleti directorial in his kitty.
A Karunakaran began his career with the 1998 hit movie Tholi Prema, which had the Power Star Pawan Kalyan in the lead role. Since then he had been sharing a good rapport with the Chiranjeevi family and that paved way for his association with Sai Dharam Tej who happens to be Chiru and Pawan Kalyan’s nephew.
The director’s last release was Chinnadana Nee Kosam in 2014, which had Nithiin and Mishti as the lead pair. With Sai Dharam Tej all set to work with the two established directors in the tinsel town, hope his sagging career is revived.
