Director Sampath Nandi has been waiting for more than two years to direct Pawan Kalyan. He landed directly into Pawan’s compound after scoring a hit with Racha. He penned few scripts for Pawan Kalyan which were rejected by Powerstar. Later Sampath was assigned to the job of directing sequel to Gabbar Singh.
Sampath readied the script for Gabbar Singh 2 by the end of December, but Pawan got busy with politics and the shoot was pushed to August. So Sampath Nandi produced a film called Gaalipatam in the mean time. But people from Tollywood say that Sampath has ghost directed this film on some other’s name.
Sampath doesn’t want to send wrong signals to anybody by directing a small film just before Pawan’s film. So he is using some other’s name as director for Gaalipatam. Maruthi also did the same for Premakatha Chitram and later confessed that it was directed by him. If the buzz about Sampath Nandi directing Gaalipatam is true we may know it if the film turns out to be a super hit.
