Filmmaker SS Rajamouli's son S Karthikeya confirmed he has opted out of his maiden Telugu production 'Aakasavani'. Releasing a statement, he said, “It has been quite a journey so far as a producer. Working on 'Aakasavani' has been one hell of a learning experience that I shall cherish for a lifetime. However, some good sojourns have to end. As much as I was excited about the project and decided to give it my all, I am so equally dedicated to the other project which I'm working as a line producer, and sometimes that prevents the much-deserved time I'd like to dedicate to the film.”
He added that since he and the film's director Ashwin Gangaruaju have a clash over creative vision, he's decided to relieve himself from the project. He added, “With an amazing crew place, progress has been great on the film. However, over time we have realised that the creative vision of the director and I is different and I felt it would be appropriate to make it easy for the team by handing over the project to someone whose ideas are in sync with the vision of the film.”
The movie has now been handed over to producer A Padmanabha Reddy of AU&I Studios Pvt Ltd.
