At the time of 'Sardaar Gabbar Singh', rumors were rife that director Bobby was present on the sets only to warm the director's chair and that Pawan himself had directed major part of the movie. Now, ahead of the release of Bobby's new directorial, 'Jai Lava Kusa', it is rumored that NTR had directed lion's share of the film. When NTR was asked on the same, he gave a very sensible answer.
"I heard these rumors and I must give a clarity. If I have the skill of directing a film, why wouldn't I direct it and take the credit officially? Why hire someone else and pay him remuneration? Would anyone file a case on me and put me in jail if I take up direction?," NTR asked in quite a sensible manner.
Disclosing his opinion on why the rumors may have surfaced in the case of 'Jai Lava Kusa', NTR reportedly said, 'Discussions happen among director, producer and hero for every film. The same happened in the case of 'Jai Lava Kusa' too. Except giving a few suggestions to Bobby during story discussion stage, I haven't interfered in direction at all. I am fortunate to work with directors who are adept at their work. If JLK becomes a hit, the entire credit goes to director Bobby only'.
NTR hopes his clarification puts lid on the rumor box.
