Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja’s Career is bogged down by back to back disasters. He currently has Amar Akbar Anthony with Srinu Vaitla and Theri Remake by Santosh Srinivas. He was supposed to shoot for both the films simultaneously but now has decided to concentrate fully on Amar Akbar Anthony. He reportedly told Santosh Srinivas that he will ‘Think’ of Theri Remake later on. Ravi Teja has previously heaped praises on this project in an interview and said, “I am doing the remake of Vijay’s Theri and we have nicely set the film according to Telugu nativity. Close to 70% of the film has been changed and it will look completely new. Even my role will have new variation”.
Interestingly, Theri was dubbed into Telugu as Policeodu and was released as well. But the film did not work at the box office. Santosh Srinivas was to direct a film with Pawan Kalyan but that did not happen since the Power Star has stopped doing films until 2019 elections to try his luck there. His last film, Hyper with Ram is a big disaster. Probably due to his bad track record, Ravi Teja wanted not to take any risk at this juncture of his career.
