We see many directors slowly disappearing and make out-of-date movies after passing their golden period. But legendary director Singeetham Srinivas Rao is in the league of his own. He is known for his love for cinema and tries something different and creative for every film. He is way ahead of his times and 'Aditya 369' stands as the biggest testament to his extraordinary vision.
This is the reason why 'Mahanati' fame Nag Ashwin brought him on board for his upcoming film with Prabhas. Singeetham will be mentoring the film's team as his experience in making science-fiction will come in handy.
Insiders say that Singeetham wrote a script which was supposed to be a sequel to 'Aditya 369' and it was supposed to feature Balakrishna and his son Mokshagnya. But the senior hero did not show interest in the project as it involves a huge budget and CGI work. It was Ashwini Dutt who reportedly came forward to bankroll it and his son-in-law Nag Ashwin reworked on it and impressed Prabhas with the narration.
Grapevine suggests that Singeetham Srinivas Rao was roped in as it was his story right from the beginning and the veteran's inclusion may add a lot of positivity and balance to this project. While this news isn't confirmed yet, it is heard everywhere in the industry.
