‘Idiot’ is a movie that features Raviteja in the lead, and it is a massy entertainer with a racy love story written and directed by Puri Jagan. And ‘Athadu’ is a class film directed by Trivikram, giving a Hollywood kind of detailing to a Telugu movie where superstar Mahesh is the hero. What is the connection between these two flicks?

There is an unseen connection between these two movies if we look closely. Do you know who is the first star-hero to listen the scripts of both these flicks, it is none other than Powerstar Pawan Kalyan. it is already known story that Puri narrated Idiot of Pawan, and when he rejected the movie he made it with Raviteja, making the actor into a star. This is a known thing anyway.

Coming to Athadu, sharing his thoughts about Pawan, director Trivikram stated that he narrated a story to Pawan long back and got rejected. After three years he came up with Jalsa script, and Pawan okayed it. When quizzed about what happened to his initial script he narrated to Pawan, our director smiled high, saying that the script became Mahesh’s ‘Athadu’.

Well, it looks like PawanKalyan has left many scripts that are often taken up by other star heroes. That’s the story folks.
