Director Maruti who entered the film industry with youth-oriented adult films like 'Ee Rojullo' and 'Bus Stop' scored a blockbuster with 'Prema Katha Chitram'. This film changed his career and made him a notable director in Tollywood. This horror-comedy was a smash hit at the box-office and became Sudheer Babu's career-best flick.
Mahesh Babu was reportedly very impressed with Maruti's work and asked him to come up with a script. Mahesh even offered advance to Maruti. These were the facts which were revealed recently by Maruti himself in an interview. He said that both Mahesh and Allu Arjun offered to do a film with him but he was not ready for it. As dealing a star hero film requires handling a lot of pressure because of their image and budgets, Maruti told that he didn't have confidence in himself.
After working with more than 30 noted artists every day on the sets of 'Prathi Roju Pandage', Maruti told that he gained the confidence to direct a star hero now and is currently working on the scripts for star heroes. We need to see if Mahesh and Bunny who offered to do a film with him then are ready to work with him now or not. Let us see what happens in the coming days.
