Hit director ‘waiting’ for Allu Arjun

There is a notion that all the heroes and producers run after directors that delivered a hit. But not everyone gets that lucky after making a hit flick. Take for example, Gopichand Malineni, who has delivered a hit with Balupu. He is yet to start his next film. Gopichand has been waiting to narrate a story to Allu Arjun.

Allu Arjun was supposed to do a film with Gopichand Malineni after Race Gurram. Dil Raju is the producer. But Allu Arjun is going with Trivikram, who has just given an industry hit Attarintiki Daredi. Although Gopichand Malineni has been working on the subject for Allu Arjun from six months, the star is yet to listen to it.

Allu Arjun okayed Trivikram’s script without even listening to the subject, says the buzz. Well, when two directors are after you and when both of them have scored hit with their previous films, the hero will choose the one who had scored the biggest hit to direct him first. Also he will back off from the project if a director fails! A film with Harish Shankar was on for Bunny until Ramayya Vastavayya released. After that film failed, Harish Shankar’s film has been pushed behind Trivikram and Gopichand films.
