Pawan Kalyan has chosen the wrong director: Netizens

Pawan Kalyan is a specialist when it comes to choosing unusual names as his directors. Even after achieving superstardom with 'Khushi', he went on to work with the likes of Veera Shankar ('Gudumba Shankar'), Bhimaneni Srinivas Rao ('Annavaram'), Dharani ('Bangaram'), and Kishore Kumar Pardasani ('Gopala Gopala' and 'Katamarayudu'). Most of these experiments backfired terribly. Nothing can explain why he even did 'Annavaram' and 'Bangaram', which have to be among the worst Telugu movies of the century.

With several media reports saying that Venu Sriram is going to be his next director, even sections of his die-hard fans are a bit skeptical. Netizens have expressed shock. "I had to google the name to know who is Venu and what his filmography looks like. He made 'Oh My Friend' and 'MCA'. Had it to be only him?" says a Twitter user. If 'OMF' was a flop, 'MCA' was overrated.

Another user says, "Since Venu will be directing a remake (of 'Pink'), we at least know what is in the offing. Unlike 'Bangaram', 'Annavaram' and 'Katamarayudu', this is not an outdated subject. Let's hope for the best."

What is Pawan's psychology in choosing unusual names? In the initial years of his career, it's greenhorns who really gave him blockbusters. From Karunakaran ('Tholi Prema'), Arun Prasad ('Thammudu') to Puri Jagannadh ('Badri'), they all changed the game for Pawan. That explains why he trusts non-star directors.
