Merlapaka Gandhi shot to fame with “Venkatadri Express” and “Express Raja” has been sitting at home for the past 18 months.
He delivered two hits back to back, yet he is not finding a star for his next movie.
After the success of “Express Raja” last year, he approached Ram Charan and narrated a storyline.
Though Charan liked the story, he asked him to wait for some time till he completes his commitments. In other words, he politely said he won’t do the film right now.
But Merlapaka Gandhi believed that Charan has given him nod for his script. He realized his mistake only a year later.
Recently he got promise from Nani. On the other hand, Nani has already begun shooting for Dil Raju’s production “Middle Class Abbayi”.
He will also be commencing another movie in the direction of Hanu Raghavapudi towards end of this year. So, Gandhi has to wait for another year to make his film roll on.
Merlapaka Gandhi has signed two-movies deal with UV Creations but they are not able to find a perfect star for his script.
