Can Jayam Ravi survive outside his home banner and without the support of his brother Raja and dad ‘editor’ Mohan?
His real test is his next release Das (earlier titled ‘Rascal’) which is getting ready. However the young hero is unhappy with debutant director Babu Yogeswaran and the rumour is that Raja has been roped in to re-shoot some of the scenes.
And during the outdoor shoot of Mazhai in Warrangal, Ravi was unhappy with director Rajkumar which led to delay in shooting and clash of dates with heroine Shriya.
Even during the shooting of Kavitaalaya’s Idaya Thirudan, Ravi found that director Saran is too fast and is not taking enough care to make him look good in front of the camera. But Raja and Mohan told him to adapt himself to the changing scenario as all films cannot be shot by anna!
Now the latest we hear is that Ravi is asking producer Ajay Kumar of Lakshmi Films to have brother Raja to direct that Telugu remake of Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana . Raja himself is not too keen to direct this film as he is waiting for Rajnikanth’s green signal for a film to be produced by his home production!
