Fingers pointed towards director Trivikram as one of the prime reasons for Pawan Kalyan’s debacle as a political leader in the last elections. Political analysts said that Trivikram misguided him.
Trivikram’s influence on Pawan Kalyan was there for everyone to see back then. However, after the flop of ‘Agnyaathavaasi’ and the poll debacle, it was reported Trivikram’s influence on the star had lessened.
The ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramloo’ director, however, is still part of Pawan Kalyan’s close coterie. It was Trivikram who suggested he take up the remake of ‘Pink’ as his comeback film. He is also setting projects for Pawan Kalyan.
Besides ‘Vakeel Saab’, Pawan Kalyan has already given his agreement to three films. A period drama in the direction of Krish has also completed some part of the shoot. A film with Harish Shankar is scheduled to start rolling next year. Now, a Telugu remake of a Malayalam hit (Ayyapanum Koshiyum) with Pawan Kalyan was announced. This project is likely to push the other two films behind. These two directors are already said to be sulking.
When two films have already been in the queue to commence the shooting part, this project fell through. This is because Trivikram allegedly asked him to sign this for his crony production house.
