Bharateeyudu 2, a sequel to the iconic hit, Bharateeyudu was announced earlier this month with Kamal Haasan, Shankar, and Dil Raju. The Senior Telugu Producer will be bankrolling it in all the languages. But then, there are rumors that Dil Raju had decided to put off the project after unreasonable remuneration and royalty demands.
Buzz in the Chennai is that Dil Raju is out of the project and Lyca Productions which is currently bankrolling Superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0 will be taking up this project. Despite rumors regarding Bharateeyudu-2 flying thick and fast, producer Dil Raju is keeping mum on whether he has really opted out of this ambitious project.
Sources say that Dil Raju is maintaining silence because he is abroad. It has to be seen if he will open up on the issue once he is back in Hyderabad. The ace producer is currently busy with the music setting of Superstar Mahesh Babu’s landmark project, Mahesh25. He is accompanied by director Vamshi Paidipally and Music Director, Devi Sri Prasad.
On the other side, Bharateeyudu Starring Universal Hero Kamal Haasan and directed by Sensational Director Shankar released in 1996 and went on to become a blockbuster. It can be termed as one of the Classics of the 90s. Shankar has in mind a line with a contemporary touch for this project and will be developing the complete script after the release of 2.0.
