NTR had mentioned in various events and interviews that Temper is one film in his career which remains close to his heart. He also said that since Temper, he is doing only content driven films rather than making mass masala flicks. It is known that Vakkantham Vamsi had written the story of Temper. Impressed with the writing skills of Vamsi, NTR agreed to do a film in his direction. A special poster of this film was also released on NTR’s birthday this year. Everyone thought the film would hit the floors after Janatha Garage but unfortunately it didn’t take off.
Though NTR remained silent on this issue, his brother Kalyan Ram revealed the reason for the delay of this project. Speaking to the media during ISM promotions, Kalyan Ram said that he and NTR didn’t like the story given by Vakkantham Vamsi and hence the project didn’t take off. But Kalyan Ram didn’t tell whether te film is still on cards or not.
