Has Power Star Pawan Kalyan and Super Star Mahesh Babu really turned this renowned director into a pauper? Jayanth Paranjee did films with top stars of Tollywood and introduced Bollywood babes Preity Zinta, Aishwarya Rai, Sonali Bendre, Anjala Jhaveri, Lisa Ray and Bipasha Basu to the industry.
He also directed Mega Star Chiranjeevi, King Nagarjuna, Natasimha Balakrishna and Victory Venkatesh. Speaking to a channel he came with a blowing comment on Super Star Mahesh Babu and Power Star Pawan Kalyan films. He said, it took him four years to get one movie after directing Mahesh Babu in Takkari Donga.
'I never get tensed and takes flops, hits into my equal stride. I suffered huge losses with Mahesh Babu's Takkari Donga and it took me four years to clear all the debts. Even then I remained balanced.
Pawan Kalyan's Teen Maar learnt me one lesson. I got vexed to direct remakes. I knew that this film would be a flop even while directing it on the sets. He saidwever he had no other option than direct it.
Though Lakshmi Narasimha and Shankar Dada MBBS are remakes, I changed some scenes to attract Telugu movie lovers. But I did Teen Maar same to same and at that time I did not have any option,' said Jayant. His comments turned controversial with fans turning furious on him.
