The other day we have published a news that VV Vinayak has got a proposal of remaking Kannada Superhit film, ‘Mufti’ to Nandamuri Balakrishna. But Balayya did not like it and rejected it outright. He asked Vinayak to come up with a straight story. We are told that Vinayak has approached Paruchuri Brothers for the story. If the script is ready by January, the project will go on floors after Sankranthi. If it is delayed, the movie will materialize only in the Second half of 2019 after elections. The project which was supposed to have its launch in May was canceled eventually.
Balayya and Vinayak previously worked together for Chenna Keshava Reddy more than 15 years ago. This is a crucial project for Vinayak and he should deliver a hit at any cost or else his market will be eroded. His recent film, Intelligent with Sai Dharam Tej is a huge disaster. VV Vinayak has delivered three flops in his last four films. Only Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 success is an exception. The credit for Khaidi No 150 success goes to Chiranjeevi for obvious reasons. Senior Producer C Kalyan who recently produced Balakrishna’s Jai Simha will be bankrolling this project. This is the third film in their combination after Parama Veera Chakra and Jai Simha.
