Nagashekhar had earlier directed 'Amar' for Sandesh Productions last year. The film which was the debut film for Abhishek Ambarish was a failure at the box-office. As the film flopped, there were news that the director and the producer had a huge fall out and Sandesh Nagaraj was very much upset with Nagashekhar for the failure of the film. Now, Nagashekhar doing another film for the same producer has raised many eyebrows.
Though Nagashekhar had not talked anything about the so-called rift last year, he now has denied saying they were all baseless rumours. 'Sandesh Nagaraj is a godfather to him. Whatever I am today, it is because of him. We share a cordial relationship and he has even bought me a car. If there were any rift between us, how could I direct another film for him. These are all baseless rumours' said Nagashekhar.
