Deva Katta has proved his mettle with the movies like 'Vennela' and 'Prasthanam'. Although his expertise in wielding megaphones was well established, he hasn't scored a solid hit till date. Furthermore, his previous venture 'Auto Nagar Surya' was a dud at the ticket windows.
Speculations are now rife that Deva Katta may likely to helm the crazy project of Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna. As we know, Balakrishna recently announced that he would play his dad NTR's role in the latter's biopic. Three writers have been hired for scripting the film. Deva Katta has reportedly been approached for taking up the direction responsibilities of the movie.
However, ever since the announcement on NTR's biopic was made, Balayya faced the heat of opposition leaders like Lakshmi Parvathi, Daggubati Venkaeswara Rao and Nadendla Bhaskara Rao. This would be the real test for the director canning the film without resorting to any controversy.
