Do you remember the movie, Aata? Siddharth and Ileana played the main leads in the film. It even received criticism that the movie was a copy of Gudumba Shankar and also due to too much of skin show, the movie was panned by critics as well. VN Aditya who was looking like going to be a long lasting filmmaker in Telugu Cinema lost out due on the ground due to the failure of the movie and his earlier movie as well.
Before this movie, VN Aditya was making a movie with Akkineni Nagarjuna, Boss post their successful movie, Nenunnanu for the same production house. While he is doing the movie he got an offer to direct Aata in the production of MS Raju. Since he is the maker of Manasantha Nuvve, he accepted the offer without a second thought. By the time, the movie was supposed to be directed by Harish Shankar but as the producer and director had differences, the movie did not happen.
Even though Aditya had an offer from Chiranjeevi he took up Aata as a sign of gratitude for his first film producer. But the director clarified that he did change the script written by Harish.
