It was just few days ago that a film was officially confirmed in the combination of Jr NTR and Koratala Siva director of Mirchi. The project has been on and off for a long time and it took many days for it to be finally confirmed. And now the film has been postponed again. This time the director has officially confirmed that the movie would not be his immediate next and that his immediate film would be with Mahesh Babu that is being produced by UTV Productions.

The reason for the delay according to the director is the lack of availability of dates of actor Jr NTR. The actor is currently busy in the shooting of Joru and it is expected to get completed only by May next year. It is only at that point that a new film could take off starring Jr NTR but Koratala Siva has already committed to Mahesh Babu project from July. Since he can’t finish a project in such quick time, he has decided to start this film after the completion of Mahesh Babu’s film.

All this is what one sees on the surface but reality suggests a different picture. Sources say that Jr NTR is still not satisfied with the director’s narration of the film and is asking the director to work on it. Incidentally this was the same script rejected by Chiranjeevi which was to be made with Ram Charan. The director after numerous narrations couldn’t convince the star father and hence the project was dropped even after the muhurtham being held for the film.
