Imagine you are in the process of making a film and are planning to approach a heroine for the role of the leading lady, you have to first get in touch with her manager and then there is a lot of hype he/she builds to give a picture the actress is busy. Finally, the deal is set and in the bargain, there are many things that happen.
It is known that the casting couch issue has rattled the Tollywood circuit and the high-level secret meeting which took place at Annapurna Studios chaired by megastar Chiranjeevi has touched upon this strongly. It is heard that all the biggies have agreed to the suggestion that the star heroes must deal with the heroines directly. (No Mediators or Co-ordinators)
Buzz is that they are being asked to coordinate with the starlets without mediators because that’s where the whole mess is happening. In a way, this is being perceived as a good move since the starlets will also feel safe and comfortable. If this decision is taken firmly, many mediators and managers are going to have a tough time.
