Director Y V S Chowdary who came to lime light with superhit movie ‘Devadasu’ later sunk in to miserable flops with ‘Okka Magadu’ and followed it with another disaster ‘Saleem’. His recent production venture ‘Nippu’ is a disaster too. In October 2010, he started a new project Rey, which will introduce the nephew of the Konidela family, Sai Dharam Tej. YVS is producing and directing it in his home banner ‘Bommarillu’. As per reliable sources, it is heard that the entire investment for the film is being made by Pawan Kalyan. With a budget of Rs 12 crores.

However, the movie was in the news for wrong reasons since its launch. Even after 16 months in shooting, the movie is no where near completion. Both the heroines of the movie walked out of the project. Few websites had reported that the movie was shelved and YVS had cheated Pawan Kalyan by diverting the funds of Rey to Nippu.

However, YVS condemned the rumours and said the movie shooting is going on at brisk pace in Hyderabad.
