Vaitla takes a dig at Prakash Raj’s poem
However, it looks like there’s more to it than meets the eye. Sreenu Vaitla, it seems, wasn’t pleased with the way the whole episode panned out before he roped in Sonu Sood to fill in the shoes of Prakash Raj in the eleventh hour.
While it appeared that the frosty vibes between Prakash Raj and Sreenu Vaitla have settled down, it actually isn’t so as the director decides to rub the actor by including a poem in ‘Aagadu’ that Prakash recited during a recent press meet, clearly hinting that all is not well between the two
“Nannu rallatho kottaku pattukoni illu kattestha, nannu kalcheyalani nippu pettaku intiki deepam chesukunta, nannu ee industrynichi pamepayalani tharamuku cheralsina chotuku twaraga cherutha (meaning: Don’t pelt stones at me, I will build a house with them, don’t try to set me on fire I will use it to illuminate my house, don’t try to throw me out of the industry I will reach my destination soon)”, recited Prakash Raj, a poem which he had written, during the controversy of ‘Aagadu’ a few months back. That he opted out of the film due to the creative differences he had with director Sreenu Vaitla snowballed into a controversy is a well known fact. He addressed the poem to a chap, who he believed, was the reason behind the hullabaloo scaling greater heights.
However, it looks like there’s more to it than meets the eye. Sreenu Vaitla, it seems, wasn’t pleased with the way the whole episode panned out before he roped in Sonu Sood to fill in the shoes of Prakash Raj in the eleventh hour. While he distanced himself from the controversy to begin with, he used his Friday release ‘Aagadu’ as a medium to give a fitting reply to Prakash Raj, who he collaborated for ‘Andarivadu’ and ‘Dookudu’ in the past. It appears that Sonu Sood, who plays a ruthless villain in ‘Aagadu’, mouths a poem similar to that of Prakash Raj’s poem before the end of the first half. We hear from sources that Vaitla, who also wrote the dialogues for the film, was indeed hurt with the way National Award winning actor decided to opt off the project and it was his way of hitting back. Well, we wish to see how Prakash, who at the success meet of ‘Power’ a fortnight ago, had good things to say about ‘Aagadu’, reacts to Vaitla’s barb.
