'Fingering Directors' On The Rise In Tollywood

'Fingering Directors' On The Rise In Tollywood

Back then, when a film is made with a happening star, surely the Director, if he's new and unproven, will get lots of advice and corrections from the hero and producer. But now, heroes and producers are bringing other senior directors to do the job. But more than advising, these directors are said to be fingering the original creativity.

Recently director Anil Ravipudi's Sarileru Neekevvaru featuring Mahesh Babu in the lead was shown to Vamsi Paidipaly, a good friend of the hero who has delivered Maharshi with him earlier. His fingering into some scenes, advising how they should be cut, which has upset the F2 director. Buzz has that Samantha has watched a special show of Venky Mama, and suggested some cuts and lag-edits, to make sure that Naga Chaitanya will get a hit. She's said to have done the same for Majili too.

Similarly, hero Vijay Devarakonda is said to be making his films watched by his blockbuster director Sandeep Vanga to get the right judgement. After watching Dear Comrade, the director is said to have expressed his inability to suggest changes, because the film will not work anyway. And now, Sandeep is said to be taking care of World Famous Lover on the editing table.

Guess what, Nagarjuna is also a director who fingers into the work of his sons' directors. Though he left Chay's films these days, right now he is said to be sitting with Bommarilu Bhaskar to watch rushes of Akhil's next and advising lots of changes.

If these 'fingering directors' could advise the right thing and give guidance, it will be good for the sake of the films, else, it might spoil the total essence of the film. But this is something young directors couldn't stop it, as heroes are after it.
