Some people try to create controversy in order to generate buzz on their film while some avoid controversy by staying calm as it helps in sidelining negative vibes over their film. Director Venky Kudumula is definitely of the second category.
It is known that Naga Shaurya claimed that he was one of the writers for 'Chalo'. During the promotions of 'Aswathama', the young hero made some comments on Venky Kudumula too. But Venky remained silent and worked on his second directorial 'Bheeshma'.
With his 'Bheeshma' gearing up to release this Friday, he participated in the promotions. When questioned about why didn't he give credit to Shaurya, the director said that he is not a person to steals away someone's credit. When the questions started to increase regarding that controversy, he politely refused to answer and said that he doesn't want to react.
It is certainly a smart move from Venky Kudumula as he avoided any kind of negative publicity that might come his film's way. On the other hand, 'Bheeshma' starring Nithiin and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead is releasing on 21st February.
