Inarguably, Koratala Siva is the third biggest brand filmmaker in Telugu Cinema today. The star director either shares the non Baahubali brand market with Trivikram Srinivas of he is right next to him. There are plenty of star heroes who are in waiting list for the dates of this blockbuster maker who delivered Mirchi, Srimanthudu and Janatha Garage at the boxoffice. NTR and Ram Charan were also in the same list. However, both cancelled thier commitments for Rajamouli’s multistarrer.
This helped Akhil Akkineni in an immense way. Wonder how? Akhil and Nagarjuna have been desperately trying to rope Koratala Siva in for a long time. Right after Akhil – The Power of Jua, Nagarjuna made failed attempts to make the Srimanthudu maker direct his son. Since Koratala was already in discussions with Mahesh Babu and NTR, he had say temporary NO for Akhil.
But now, there is enough space for Koratala Siva. He has no immediate project in hand after Bharat Ane Nenu. This is the right time for Akhil Akkineni to pressurise Kortala. Who knows, Koratala’s next after BAN would be with Akhil.
