Surender Reddy got an offer to direct Kannada star Nikhil Kumar, son of Karnataka’s former chief minister H D Kumar Swamy, but the director is now not showing much interest in the project. At one time, he wanted to take up that offer, but now he is thinking otherwise, said a source.
Despite ‘Dhruva’ being a remake, Surender Reddy was praised for sticking to the movie’s original story and making it slick and classy. So, big heroes are showing interest to act under his direction again. The debacle of “Kick 2” is almost forgotten now.
The same source adds Surender Reddy will be directing Akhil for a top producer. Nagarjuna reportedly personally asked Suri to direct his son as he thinks that he can project Akhil as a commercial hero. So he will start Akhil’s movie in summer of 2017.
On the other hand, HD Kumar Swamy is still pursuing Surender Reddy for his son’s second movie.
