Legendary actress Savitri's biopic Mahanati created a sensation at the box office and became a dictionary for all filmmakers and actors as to how to make a perfect and successful biopic. It inspired many to think of biopics of various film, sports and political personalities in Tollywood.
Director Nag Ashwin, who won the accolades of movie lovers and critics for the near perfect direction is surprising all with his silence. Even after 8 months following Mahanati release, Nag Ashwin did not commit any new project.
Sometime back he delighted all saying he readied a story for Mega Star Chiranjevi but it stopped at the proposal level. Chiranjeevi too lined up his next projects with Koratala Siva and Trivikram Srinivas.
Nag Ashwin during Mahanati promos revealed that he had many stories with him and readied few of them to go to sets immediately. However there is no news that he met heroes and narrated them. Close aides of Nag Ashwin reveal that Nag is readying a new story setting aside the stories he already has.
He will decide about the hero after completing his new story. This may take some more time. Even after Yevade Subrahmanyam, Nag Ashwin took three years for Mahanati. Nag Ashwin seems to have realized the immense pressure and expectations on him after Mahanati success and so is treading slowly and carefully.
