It seems filmmaker Maruthi had originally written the script of Radha keeping in mind Power Star Pawan Kalyan but the super star supposedly denied doing the film, as the story line did not impress him. And Maruti took the script to Venkatesh who readily agreed to work in the film.
Oops! Why did senior actor Venkatesh pick up the story that was rejected by the reigning star? Was he desperate for work? No we do not think so, well whatever the reason is, in our view Venky must have given a thought before signing, at least wondered why Pawan did not like the story.
However, Venky seems to have no qualms whatsoever in taking up films that were shrugged off by his colleagues. Probably the actor had a different perspective of Radha rather a positive approach. But was he ok to do over-the-top-comedy that Maruti is known to make? We wish Venky all the very best for Radha!
