After delivering Megastar Chiranjeevi starrer historic and war drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Surender Reddy did not make any official announcement regarding his next upcoming directorial venture. Though Chiranjeevi is getting ready to join the sets of his flick #Chiru152, which will go on the floor from the next month. It is known news that though the Telugu version of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is hit at the box office but it’s other versions have turned out commercially flop. But Surender Reddy is not ready to accept it. According to his Sye Raa is not a flop movie. On the other side, Surender Reddy is planning to team up with Baahubali and Saaho star Prabhas. Recently in an interview Surender Reddy showered praises on Prabhas and said that because of Jr NTR, he lost the opportunity to work with Prabhas in 2006. After hearing these words from Surender Reddy, the fans of Jr NTR are fired on director on social media sites.
Apparently Surender Reddy told to media people, “I was supposed to work with Prabhas long back in 2006 itself. But that time Jr NTR’ manager Sukumar forced me to work the Nandamuri hero. Not only this they also came up with Ashok story and asked me to direct. I was forced to work on that project, which turned out to be a flop”.
Ashok was a romantic drama in which Jr NTR shared the screen space with Sameera Reddy in 2006.
Surender Reddy’ comments on Jr NTR, are not going well with Tarak’ fans and they are abusing him on Twitter. The fans are saying that It was Nandamuri Kalyan Ram who gave a chance to Surender Reddy to make his directorial debut in Tollywood and he should be thankful to Nandamuri heroes.
Few Jr NTR fans are also saying that after the flop movie Ashok, It was Jr NTR who gave another chance to Surender Reddy to direct a movie titled Oosaravelli, which was also a flop.
