Agnyaathavaasi, Power Star Pawan Kalyan and his good friend and director Trivikram’s second association after the industry hit Atharintiki Dharedi, released on January 10 and bombed heavily at the box-office. Fans and industry circles didn’t expect such a mediocre outing from one of the most successful actor-director duos in Tollywood.
Meanwhile, industry grapevine is that Pawan foresaw Agnyaathavaasi’s failure much ahead of its release. Apparently, Pawan watched the movie during the re-recording stage and he was deeply upset with the way Trivikram handled the movie.
Pawan also refused to promote the movie as he didn’t want to force a mediocre film on his fans. The actor also directed both Trivikram and the film’s producer S Radhakrishna to compensate for the losses bring borne by the distributors.
