Rumours have surfaced that Jagapathi Babu was forced to quit Mahesh Babu’s ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ owing to the working style of director Anil Ravipudi who made changes to the script that didn’t go well with the senior actor.
But, the truth seems to be otherwise. According to a report in the DC, another senior actor Prakash Raj pressurized both Dil Raju and Mahesh Babu for a role in Anil Ravipudi directorial.
As all the actors for various roles were already finalised before the film went on to the sets, there was no scope for Prakash Raj to fit in unless someone gets replaced. So, the makers of the movie and Mahesh Babu had to request Jagapathi Babu.
Though Prakash Raj is one of the most versatile actors we know of, he has also garnered negative word of mouth for being late on the sets of his films.
Prakash Raj also has a bad name for his egoistic remarks on co-stars and others who sometimes were intimidated by his behavior on the sets. His political career also put him off and he away from films for a while.
