It seems nothing can last forever, not even friendship. One of the best known friends in Sandalwood; Yograj Bhat and Suri seem to have fallen developed differences. There is no word from Bhat about it but Suri in an outspoken outburst has blamed him for taking credit of others. Suri has said that he is tired of always being referred to in tandum with Bhat. Saying that he is not from the Bhat camp, Suri has said that both their paths are different and make different kinds of films which is not mutually liked by each other.
Last week, there was a television programme in which nearly a dozen new directors were termed Bhat's former assistants. Suri seems to be upset with this and says all those claiming to be from Bhat camp really are not. He gives example of Gadda Viji. Viji was Suri's assistant but now is being touted as Bhat's assistant after Dyavre released.
Suri has also claimed that in the first serial they worked together, Sadhane, he had written the dialogues but Bhat got the credit. He has said Bhat takes advantage of his associates. Citing example of Preetam Gubbi, he says Bhat kept him away after he claimed that Mungaru Male story was his.
