Pawan Kalyan and Director SJ Suryah have come forward to work on a film which has got a tentative title Kadapa King. But now SJ Surya opted out of the project, and the makers have roped in a new director. SJ Suryah has become a most wanted actor now in Kollywood post the release of the film ‘Iraivi’. After the success of Iraivi, the actor is continuously getting offers in both Telugu and Tamil languages. SJ Surya tried to delay the project after discussing with Pawan Kalyan. But Pawan, who does not want to see any further delays has discussed with his producer Sharad Marar and roped in Kishore Pardhasany (Dolly) of Gopala Gopala fame.
Dolly had earlier directed Pawan Kalyan in Gopala Gopala, and both share a very good rapport. During the time of Gopala Gopala, Pawan promised Dolly a film, and when SJ Suryah is walking away from the film, the immediate choice for Pawan is Dolly. Already the pre-production work on the film is in progress, and the regular shoot starts from July end.
