Tollywood director Teja left NTR biopic stating that he cannot do justice to the movie. However, the real reason for opting out of the movie was remuneration. Teja asked biopic movie rights for some areas but actor Balakrishna had fixed a remuneration to him. But, Teja was not happy with the remuneration. After the success of Nene Raju Nene Mantri, Teja is of the view that producers are ready to pay more remuneration if he agrees with direction. After Teja quitting the NTR biopic, Balakrishna changed his office location suspecting Vaastu dosham for the movie.
