Director Koratala Siva is still busy working on clearing the repayments to the distributors of ‘Acharya’, which tanked at the box office miserably. As the distributors lost more than 60 percent of their investment, the makers have to repay them. Koratala Siva was not only the director of the film but also involved in the business of ‘Acharya’. Hence, the burden of repayment was put on him.
Due to certain issues, Koratala Siva is still working on that process. Thus, his next film with NTR (#NTR30) is getting delayed. The film’s regular shoot was to begin this month. But now, our sources add that it can only begin in September.
The reports of Samantha as the heroine of the film also turned out to be false. No female lead has been finalized for this film. Alia Bhatt was the first choice, but she opted out of the project.
Anirudh Ravichander who came on board for this project has not yet begun the music session. Koratala Siva will work on #NTR30 only after clearing the payments of ‘Acharya’.
