Sudheer Babu who ventured into production with his last flick Nannu Dochukunduvate was seen in a special role in Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu. He after taking some gap is starring in a thriller film V under the direction of Indraganti Mohana Krishna. Nani played antagonist in the film that marks 25th film for the Natural Star.
Meanwhile, Sudheer Babu in search of a wannabe director who narrated him a story three years ago posted plot of the film in his social media account. “3 years back, a wannabe director narrated a script to my friend @VijayChilla of @70mmEntertains in which "A director (hero) narrates a script to a producer goon" & unexpected things happen thereafter. Vijay lost his contact. If he is on twitter & reading this, pls reach out.”
This post triggers controversy as netizens feel Sudheer Babu leveled allegations on Varun Tej and Harish Shankar’s film Valmiki as copy of this story. However, the fact is Valmiki is official remake of Tamil hit Jigarthanda.
Some say that, the director who narrated the story to Sudheer Babu and his friend-producer might have taken inspiration from Jigarthanda which was released in 2014, almost five years ago.
