Vikram made some unwanted remarks on Rana in his recent interview about why Southern Star Heroes could not make it Bollywood while heroines are doing it - barring Kamal Hassan ? For this Vikram reportedly quoted on Rana on how his Bollywood attempts have backfired big time . This is what he said in the interview about Rana :
Kamal Haasan had Ek Duuje Ke Liye (1981), which was the biggest hit that year. Then he had Saagar (1985). After that he hasn’t done anything. It’s not easy to leave your business down south. You get paid a lot in the south. Here you have to start from scratch. For girls it’s different as they do their PR well. Look at Rana Daggubati. He started in the Telugu industry and came to Bollywood but he hadn’t made any headway in the south. Now he’s not bothered about the Telugu industry. To work in Bollywood, I have to leave everything and come here. I am doing a film for Shankar, which is being made at R145 cr and I can’t just leave that.
Rana has responded to Vikram comments as ” Dear Mr.Vikram I see you quote me and my directions in quite a few media interactions of yours recently. It is best if you focus on your career that isn’t headed in the right direction with close to 10 odd disasters in your kitty I’m barely 2 1/2yrs old as an actor and you are almost close to 25yrs. Stay put on urs as I am on mine not take anything away still a huge fan of few of your films ”
