A strategy that worked wonders once, might or might not be successful the other time. Though planned perfectly by putting in ample efforts, there might be a slight slip that might cost huge. Confused why we are talking about the strategies? Then let's get into the topic.
It is well-known that Rebel Star Prabhas is doing a film with Mahanati fame Nag Ashwin. He pitched a strong antagonist character that can match the role of Prabhas in this sci-fi drama which will be made an astonishing budget with never seen VFX. After considering a few names who can best suit the role, it was gossiped that the director is in plans to rope in Rana Daggubati for the role. With Nag Ashwin maintaining a close rapport with Suresh Productions and Rana in the recent past, the rumour-mongers took no time to spread the news of Rana being part of the project. If this happens, it would certainly be the biggest blunder Ashwin has ever made.
Though Rana and Prabhas locked horns in the magnum opus Baahubali, Rana has not gained much craze earlier. But, now things are different as Baahubali catapulted Rana among the star heroes. Also, Rana had an exciting lineup of projects like Virata Parvam, Aaranya, Hiranyakashyap, etc. and it is not sure if the audience will accept him in a villainous role once again.
Though Nag Ashwin has delivered good films, he is still a young director unlike Rajamouli and a slight mistake in the characterization might not only damage the image of Rana but also the film. So, it would be a bad idea to choose Rana Vs Prabhas strategy once again. So, makers should consider it thoroughly before taking a final call.
