No doubt, Naga Chaitanya has done his best as Surya in his recent offing Autonagar Surya. Yet, the word doing rounds on the streets is that Chaitanya was not better choice for this socio-political drama. As per the script, the protagonist should be sturdy, and sport rugged looks. Given that Chaitu has more decent, softened looks, few opine that he hasn’t worked in favour of the film.
An industry source said, “The film was supposed to be done by Balakrishna. Deva Katta has written this script keeping him in mind. In fact, he narrated the story first to Balakrishna. But due to various reasons, it didn’t work out. Later, it has gone to Chaitanya and he has done the film. Considering Chaitanya, director has made few changes but it hasn’t worked enough it seems.”
In fact, Deva Katta deserve more blame for the mixed response to the film as he relied heavily on the dialogues rather than on the story, narration. Whatever guys, let’s bygones be bygones.
