National Award Winner Priyamani has reportedly played havoc with her co-star ( Vimala Raman) role in an upcoming Telugu film opposite Sumanth. The actress agreed to star in a Telugu film knowing well that she would have to share the screen space with another actress Vimala Raman.
But her attitude changed on the sets and she is insisting that debutant director Vijay should reduce the role of her co-star Vimala Raman and she even pressurized the producer to change the climax, apparently to elevate her role.
The entire team, including the film’s lead star Sumanth, is perturbed by Priyamani’s behavior, we hear.
According to a source in the production house, the actress had no problems while approving the script – a tale of a young man who is caught between two girls.
“Shooting commenced few weeks ago and we shot important portions with Sumanth and Priyamani. But once Vimala Raman joined the unit, the actress began to raise doubts about both the roles. Even the Goa schedule didn’t progress smoothly and finally the actress is adamant about changing the bold climax, unwilling to share equal footage or significance with Vimala,” he reasons.
If everything goes well, the shooting would commence or else the producer will be forced to replace him to wrap up the remaining 50 per cent of the shooting with another director, succumbing to the unreasonable demands of the actress.
