A video of Surender Reddy surfaced on Social Media. The director was saying to the anchor he should have directed Young Rebel Star Prabhas after his first film, Athanokkade. “NTR’s the then manager, Sukumar took me to his office and blackmailed me emotionally. I had to agree finally,” Surender Reddy said.
It looks like a funny moment, but Mega fans are ridiculing NTR. “He is one actor who always run after success,” they ridicule. Surender Reddy directed NTR in Ashok immediately after Athanokkade, and the movie ended up as a big flop. Later, he directed the Young Tiger once again in Oosaravelli. The film also did not work at the Box Office.
