It is known that Nani is co-producing the film Awe which is set to release soon. The film is being directed by Prashanth Varma, who is experimenting with his debut film.
As per Tollywood grapevine, not all was well between the director and Nani, as Nani wanted more control over creative content during the making.
Given that he has been having a good run at the box-office of late, Nani wanted to have a say, as he is well-aware of the audiences' tastes.
In fact, there is talk that Nani was the one who gave the final cut to Awe as he is the co-producer and the man behind bringing in Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menon Regina and others.
However, thanks to the cold war on the sets, Prashanth Varma was put aside till he relented and gave in to Nani's suggestions. Only then was Prashant Varma allowed to talk to the media. Well, the PR team surely did play its part by taking sides with the producer.
So, now things are back to normal between Nani and the director say industry insiders. However, it remains to be seen if Nani's Midas touch will help the film at the box-office.
