Soon after the movie was declared a dud, S Narayan started the proceedings by accusing Ganesh of not co-operating and promoting the movie. Ganesh, who maintained a dignified silence for a few months, said that he was an actor and he could not be blamed for a movie's failure. S Narayan had narrated an interesting story before Munjane took off, but it was different when it was brought on-screen, the Mungaaru Male star had claimed.
This bitter incident made S Narayan to announce his retirement. The director blamed the young actors for their lack of dedication and for not having respect towards senior directors leading him to bid goodbye to films. But he returned to films after three months when his close friends in the industry forced him to change his decision. During the process, he was reportedly accusing Ganesh despite admitting in public that the filmmaker himself was responsible for the failure and he was not blaming any one.
But Ganesh, who is basking in the success of Romeo, have reportedly heard that S Narayan is still pointing his fingers at him for Munjaane's failure, for which the Golden Star has reacted again. He has claimed that it is unfair to blame him for the failure of a film. Success and failure are two faces of the same coin and we should accept it as it comes.
