Harish Shankar is no longer hot shot director in Tollywood even though his last film "DJ Duvvada Jagannadham" had collected huge amount with the openings.
Although producer Dil Raju claims 'DJ' as a blockbuster, trade doesn't believe it. Had it been a big hit, director Harish Shankar would have been chased by big stars. That is the hard truth.
Harish has been trying to find stars for his mid-range movie called "Daagudu Moothalu" despite the fact that the movie is bankrolled by Dil Raju. He tried to rope in Nani but the Natural Star politely said no.
Later he convinced Nithin and Sharwanand to star in his movie but they have not given him immediate dates. Both the stars will only be available for his film after June or July this year.
Realising that even mid-range heroes like Nithin and Sharwanand are not showing urgency to act in his movie, he has become desperate to get some buzz. Suddenly he has announced another movie called 'Seeti Maar'.
At a time when his current film is struggling to go to the sets, he comes up with announcement of another movie saying a big star will act in 'Seeti Maar'. Anybody who knows the trends of Tollywood can easily guess this "press note movies".
Talk is that stars are fearing to associate with him for his loose tongue that would land them in trouble. Allu Arjun faced similar problem after ‘DJ’.
