It had been reported earlier that producer D.V.V. Danayya had approached director Teja to launch his son. But that didn’t materialise as director Teja was busy with other projects.
Now, we’ve learnt from a source that Danayya approached director Maruthi with the launch offer, which the latter has agreed to do. And the offer, we hear, was interesting too.
“Danayya also offered a sum of Rs 6 crore as remuneration to Maruthi to launch his son. The director has agreed. Once his present film Prathi Roju Pandaga releases this month, he’ll begin working on the script for the debutant actor,” the source tells us.
Danayya’s son has been training in acting for the last couple of years. “If the debut clicks, he will continue acting; otherwise, he’ll look after his father’s production,” another source close to the producer tells us.
