'When Vamshi Paidipally approached Me with a subject, I thought of rejecting it after 10 minutes narration due to two prior commitments. After listening to the 20 minutes narration, I told him about the two projects I had already committed. Then, Vamshi told Me he is willing to wait for 2 years as no other hero can be imagined by him in this subject. These days, Directors change the heroes if they have to wait for 2-3 months but Vamshi waited for him for 3 years. I will be grateful to him always. He is the only Director I would call by name as I consider him as my younger brother'.
Isn't it looking like a satire on Sukumar who decided to shelve his project with Mahesh Babu due to delay and approached Allu Arjun? Looks like, The attempts made for the compromise didn't yield result.
Will Mahesh ever work with Sukumar again?? It looks very doubtful if the punch thrown by him at the Maharshi event is any indication.
