Some how or other, director Sreenu Vaitla is finding it tough to handle the cinematographers of his movie as he changed them twice within a span of 2 months for his latest movie, Badshah.
When the film’s shooting began in Italy in July, Andrew (of Kandireega and Ullasanga Utsahanga fame) was the cinematographer. However, Sreenu was not comfortable with him and dropped him after the Europe schedule and roped in cameraman Jayanan Vincent (of Gabbar Singh fame).
Jayanan had worked for the film’s Bangkok schedule and worked for few days and Vaitla dropped him too from the project and had roped in another cinematographer R D Rajasekhar into this project.
Sreenu has had problems with cinematographers in the past too. He had a big fight with his cameraman Prasad Murella during Dookudu after the completion of 70 percent of the shoot. He then replaced him with another cameraman K V Guhan. Until differences cropped up between them, Prasad Murella was Srinu Vaitla’s trusted cinematographer.
