Sampath Nandi is just 2 films old and he has got more than 2 years gap even after delivering a blockbuster in the form of Racha. The actor was in contention for directing Pawan Kalyan’s Gabbar Singh-2.
Sampath Nandi was working Gabbar Singh-2 script for more than an year. But the film is being delayed for various reasons. Pawan Kalyan’s last film, Attarintiki Daredi was released in September and from then Gabbar Singh-2 was postponed several times. And it is clear that the delay is due to Pawan Kalyan’s political commitments.
Sampath was advised to finish a film before Gabbar Singh-2. But he do not want to angry Pawan Kalyan by shifting to other project before Gabbar Singh-2. So, he turned in to producer and is funding a project, Gaalipatam starring Aadi.
Sampath Nandi penned the story, dialogues and screenplay. A new comer Naveen Gandhi is directing the film but it is said Sampath Nandi is the ghost director of the film. If Gabbar Singh-2 do not do well, it will be a death blow for Sampath Nandi’s career.
