Ram Charan kicks on the back of Jr NTR

The sudden stalling of prestigious 'Merupu' created flutters in Mega circles and future of Ram Charan became a big question mark. One can call it frustration and others a clever step but Ram Charan is decided to go forward with director Sampath Nandi('Yemaindi Ee Vela' fame) for his next project.

Insiders report is, Sampath got hold of this mass story by registering the title 'Rachcha' in film chamber. Apparently, Sampath was interested in advancing the project with Ram Charan but the title was almost on the stage of theft by Jr NTR for his under production flick in direction of Surender Reddy.

Although Sampath Nandi has not confirmed on the sacrificing of title for Jr NTR and twist of destiny is that Ram Charan putting the pressure on director not to surrender 'Rachcha' to Jr NTR. This makes Ram Charan and Jr NTR fighting for the same title while Mega Power Star is on the advantageous side with Sampath, this might cause a set back to Young Tiger.
