Pawan Kalyan we know is a very picky actor, and he makes sure that the films he works is in the right hands (director), and he goes to the extent of testing their mettle before beginning to work with them. Pawn’s latest victim or say “guinea pig” was Sampath Nandi, who had to wait for a very long time to convince the actor about the script. Sampath Nandi was initially asked to change the entire script by Pawan and once Nandi did that he was asked to make a lot of changes and after passing out all these hurdles, the film was finally launched a few days ago.
Pawan seems to use a strategy to test the waters before landing up in a project, and he has not spared anyone from taking up this huge test; Trivikram, Harish Shankar, Puri Jagannath, Karunakaran and now Sampath Nandi have all had to go through this “conviction-barometer” set up by the power star. Filmmakers must have noticed that Pawan deliberately makes quirky suggestions to the director just to know how confident he is on the script.
The actor, in fact, has abandoned some of the directors who could not make it in this challenging test. Well, it can be presumed that Pawan’s strange test is for the greater good of the final outcome; the actor’s choice of scripts and the success story behind his films says it all! No wonder filmmakers who actually understand Pawan’s mind will go ahead and accept this challenge.
