So, it is not one but two films that this sensational director is going to do in Telugu. We are talking about the two film old Prashanth Neel who has caught the attention of Telugu fans, big time.
It need not be emphasised that Prashanth Neel’s KGF has found a great following post its theatrical release in Telugu. The fans of different Telugu stars wish their favourite hero to do a film with him.
And just like that, a film in the combination of Jr NTR and Prashanth Neel has been locked by Mythri Movie Makers. Well, it seems it won’t be the only product that Neel would be part of in Telugu. He has also okayed DVV Danayya, the makers of RRR, for a new project. Not many seem to have paid attention when the makers wished the director, but when the latter replied to them, things got clear.
Speculations have already begun regarding the star to be part of this project. Two names, Prabhas and Mahesh Babu, are currently being tossed.
What it means is double pressure for Prashanth Neel in the coming years. And this is beside the mammoth expectations he has to meet with the second chapter of KGF. Wonder what the Kannada fans of the director have to say now?
Suffice to say, no director in India would have had such pressure with just two films under his best. The closest names that come to our mind are Shankar and Raju Hirani. These directors met high expectations and delivered and went on to become landmark names in respective industries. Will Prashanth Neel recreate history in modern times? Will he be Shankar 2.0?
P.S. SS Rajamouli too had continuous success, but the expectations on his films, initially, were not at the level of the above two mentioned directors.
