Akkineni Nagarjuna has deliberately avoided talking about Trivikram Srinivas during 'Manmadhudu 2' pre-release event in which he praised Director Vijay Bhaskar. When he was asked about it in a recent interview, The Senior Hero justified his stand by saying it was Vijay Bhaskar who narrated the script of 'Manmadhudu' to him and he was the one who used to discuss about punches with him while shooting.
The World knows 'Manmadhudu' wouldn't have been like that without the valuable contributions of Trivikram in the script work. Telugu People are well aware of the ability of Vijay Bhaskar without the backing of Trivikram. So, What would Nag gain from denying credit?
Speculations were abuzz that Nagarjuna is miffed with Trivikram for turning down the proposal to direct Akhil's flick. As a Director, Trivikram has got the right to choose the hero with whom he should be working. Who knows, He might cast either Akhil or Naga Chaitanya in one of his future projects. By hurting Trivikram, Nagarjuna is just ruling out any such possibility. Imagine, What wonders a filmmaker like Trivikram could do to the careers of Actors. This negative approach could hurt the Akkinenis at some point!
