Jawan director Atlee has made headlines as rumours are doing the rounds that he will direct Pawan Kalyan in his next. Read to find out if this news is true or not.
Atlee and Pawan Kalyan
Director Atlee is on top of his game after the success of Jawan with Shah Rukh Khan. The action drama made over Rs 1,000 crore at the box office and made Atlee a force to reckon with in the country. He is one of the most sought-after directors and many stars are eager to work with him.
Everyone is eagerly waiting to see which star Atlee will direct next. Well, there is a rumour doing the rounds in the film circles and social media that Atlee has met Pawan Kalyan and narrated a script and that the project has also been locked. But we have come to know from one of our sources that this news is fake and has no truth in it.
The source adds, "Pawan sir is busy with his political assignments and there is no scope for him to give dates for a new film anytime soon. He has not met any directors and only has the Andhra Pradesh elections on his mind. Nothing is brewing on the film front at least for the next six months".
Already, three films featuring Pawan Kalyan - Hari Hara Veera Mallu, OG, and Usatad Bhagath Singh - have been on floors for a long time and are yet to be wrapped up. So, there is no question of a film with Atlee as of now, as Pawan needs to wrap up these films in the first place.
Pawan Kalyan has been in active politics for the last few years and has been making money only to run his political party. This he has said in many of his interviews in the past. So, he is shooting for his film at leisure. But several directors want to cash in on his star power and popularity and make a beeline to direct him.
Atlee is only known to work with stars and after directing a star like SRK, the stakes are even higher for him now. As of now, Atlee is busy scripting for his new film, which he will make in Hindi.
He also has plans to direct Thalapathy Vijay and Allu Arjun but that news is not yet confirmed. We need to see which hero he will lock in the days to come. For now, him directing a film with Pawan Kalyan is a fake and just a rumour.
