Yes, the heading is right and there is no false propaganda in it. Our Tollywood directors are sitting idle, making changes to their scripts in waiting for star heroes to work with them. No star hero is available for them and Rajamouli has to take the blame for this to some extent. Currently, Rajamouli is working with Ram Charan and NTR for RRR. With the time taken for the shooting of this flick and promotions, both the heroes can do two films. That means if they work individually 4 films can be made in the span RRR is being made. That means. three directors are affected by this. Ram Charan and NTR will not be free until August.
Leaving Rajamouli factor aside, a top director like Koratala Shiva had to wait for a longer period with Syeraa has taken time for shooting longer than expected. Even Trivikram Srinivas has waited for Allu Arjun for Ala Vaikunthapuramulo. Sukumar after delivering blockbuster hit like Rangasthalam hasn’t started his next film yet. VV Vinayak couldn’t get the dates of star heroes and hence he turned into a hero.
Puri Jagannath recently bounced back with super hit Ismart Shankar. Later he confirmed his next with Vijay Deverakonda. But the daring and dashing director has to wait until January to start a movie with Vijay. Surender Reddy even after delivering a good product with Syeraa has to wait at least three months more to get clarity about his next. Boyapati Srinu has made Balakrishna agree to his script but he has to wait until January to start shooting as Balakrishna is busy shooting for Ruler. Parasuram after scoring blockbuster success with Geeta Govindam hasn’t got his next film yet as star heroes are so busy. He is now thinking to work with middle-range heroes rather than sitting idle for months.
All the star heroes are busy working, while most of the star directors are waiting for their heroes to come onboard.
