Telugu movie Doosukeltha starring Vishnu Manchu and Lavanya Tripathi in leads, has hit the screens on October 17 and got good opening at the Box Office. Of late, an interesting news is doing rounds in the film nagar. The buzz is that director Veeru Potla initially wanted to do this movie with Power Star Pawan Kalyan. He had even approached the actor with the story, but the latter rejected it over some unknown reason.
Veeru Potla, who started his career as a screenwriter, turned director with Manchu Manoj's film Bindaas. After the success of his second film Ragada, the director prepared the script of Doosukeltha and first approached Pawan Kalyan with the story. The No. 1 Telugu actor turned down his offer, before letting him approach another hero, he reportedly helped Veeru to add a few masala elements into the story.
It is not clear why Pawan Kalyan rejected Veeru Potla's offer, but everyone must appreciate his courtesy. This is not the first time that PK has helped other heroes indirectly in getting good scripts. In fact, many of the Puri Jagannath and Raviteja combo movies were actually set for the Power Star. But not many in the Telugu film industry know about the reason behind his refusal.
