Tamil director Lingusamy had set his eyes on Tollywood following a bad run in Tamil. For a long time, he had been waiting for the dates of Allu Arjun after the latter gave the green signal to a script narrated by Lingusamy. But Bunny has made the director wait for a long time now.
In fact, after Sarrainodu, everyone thought Bunny's film with Lingusamy would begin. But much to everyone's surprise, Bunny announced a movie in the direction of Harish Shankar, Duvvada Jagannadham, to be produced by Dil Raju.
Mifed at this, Lingusamy went to Junior NTR and narrated the script to him which was approved by Bunny. NTR too liked the script and gave his approval. Hearing about this, Bunny hurriedly called Lingusamy and announced his project with him.
Maybe Bunny did not want to lose out on such a good script or maybe there were other reasons. Anyway, Lingusamy achieved his objective. Maybe, he should have approached Junior NTR earlier.
