Finally,the Prakash Raj issue was settled with the actor being left after a strong warning. Director Srinu Vaitla had shown the actor the door after just two days of shooting because of the actor’s high-handed behaviour and had complained against him. Both of them placed their arguments before the co-ordination committee and after three hours of talks, the committee decided to let Prakash Raj off with a warning.
Even producers Dil Raju, Sravathi Ravi Kishore and Tagore Madhu came to Prakash Raj’s support. Srinu Vaitla and the producer Gopi Achanta, along with the co-directors who actually gave the complaint, attended the meeting. Among the committee members, AP Film Chamber president N.V. Prasad, Directors’ Association president Veerashankar, Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, Ali, Sivaji Raja, Gemini Kiran and RK attended the meeting.
The committee also asked both Srinu Vytla and Prakash Raj to compensate the producer for the loss. “They had shot two days with Prakash Raj and then replaced him with Sonu Sood. The producer incurred a loss because of this and both the director and actor agreed to compensate for the loss. When asked about the issue Mr. N.V. Prasad, president, AP Film Chamber of Commerce, said, “The issue is settled and is over.”
