It is hard to believe but actors do undergo many tough times even though they achieve success. Even if you belong to most influential family, finances are not like people and you may lose the color notes, called money anytime.
Sai Dharam Tej got to know about that very early in his career. His debut film, Rey, had to undergo lots of postponements and even though he is nephew of two of the biggest stars of Telugu Cinema, he couldn't escape bad tags like 'Iron Leg'.
The actor himself shared it in a interview, he said, "I did not want my uncles, Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan, to feel any embarrassment because of me. I wanted them to be proud of me and after studies, tried to get into films on my own."
He continued, "I got Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham and Rey, as Sai Dharam Tej and not because, I am Chiranjeevi's nephew. I told my decision first to Pawan Kalyan and then to Chiranjeevi. Later, I revealed it to my mother. They all were supportive, but my mother wanted me to complete MBA, before joining films."
He revealed that during Rey, he did not have money and only hope that the move will succeed made him continue to work. After Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham, he felt like continuing in films.
He revealed that one Mega Fan, cursed and abused him after Rey and then, he decided to quit, if Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham doesn't work.
He said, "A mega fan called me and asked me to stop acting in films. He dad that he likes Chiranjeevi and I should not be a black mark for the actor. After Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham, he apologised to me. "
"I need to spend lot of time with my mother that I lost during my childhood. Once, I feel, I should get married, I will find a girl, until then, let me be," said the actor.
