There are very few directors who entered the industry as writers and turned themselves into successful directors. Koratala Siva is one of them as he worked as a writer for some Boyapati Sreenu films. Interestingly, both Boyapati Sreenu and Koratala Siva were brought into the industry by Posani Krishna Murali. Boyapati became the director first and got a star status with hits like ‘Bhadra’, ‘Tulasi’, ‘Simha’, ‘Legend’ and ‘Sarrainodu’. His last outing ‘Vinaya Vidheya Rama’ was a disaster and he needs a big hit now. He is working with Balakrishna at the moment.
On the other hand, Koratala Siva had a feud with Boyapati regarding the writing credits for ‘Simha’ and parted ways with him. Later he became a director with ‘Mirchi’ and there was no turning back. He is now the most sought after director after Rajamouli as did not face a failure till date. He is currently making a film with none other than megastar Chiranjeevi titled ‘Acharya’.
With the Corona disturbing the schedules of Tollywood, sources claim that there is a high chance of both Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna releasing their films in the same season. More than Chiru and Balayya rivalry what is exciting the audience is the face-off between Koratala Siva and Boyapati Sreenu. As we know, Koratala openly panned Boyapati for stealing his work. This is making things more interesting and let us wait and see what happens.
