Seeing the condition of a director, many are under the impression that mega heroes are turning him into a football. Dil Raju officially announced Icon with Stylish Star Allu Arjun under the direction of Venu Sriram of MCA fame. Allu Arjun too promoted the film using Icon caps during elections. But now suspicion is increasing whether the film will be there or not.
The makers used to give feelers that the project was about to start to the media as if to increase pressure on star director Sukumar who is set to direct Stylish Star. However after Sukumar readied the story, they set aside the project.
There is no guarantee that Allu Arjun will do Icon after Sukumar's project. In the meantime Dil Raju is striving hard to make Venu Sri Ram to direct Pink remake. It is known that Pawan Kalyan is set to make his return to the screen with Pink remake. Since it is impossible to make Trivikram Srinivas direct the remake and with Pawan too showing interest, Venu Sri Ram's name hogged the limelight.
Many grew envious of Venu Sri Ram and they started talking that he is directing not only Stylish Star but also Power Star. But with Pawan going into his shell getting confused, Venu Sri Ram is left in the lurch in the mega heroes football game.
