Maruthi has this dubious reputation of taking over projects that seem a success and disowning the ones that damage his brand. That is how he has been managing “Brand Maruthi”. Recently filmnagar heated up with a rumor that Maruthi is taking over “Lovers”.
Lovers film has been announced with director Hari who did a film earlier with Srikanth titled Lucky. His story was liked by Sumanth Aswin (MS Raju’s son) and the film went on floor under Maruthi Presents banner with producers Nagavamsi and Mehendra Babu. Till recently news is that, the film is shaping up well and it might hit the bulls eye. May be Maruthi again got greedy and took over the film.
After all these rumors were making rounds in Tollywood, director Hari made it clear that such a thing has not happened and he is still the captain of the ship. Maruthi also clarified that film is coming out well and its a clean entertainer from Maruthi banner. Hope the matters ends here. If not, Maruthi also has a practice of owning the film after it is released. So be careful Hari !
