Hero-director friendships are common in Tollywood. Many a time, a hero finds his comfort zone in a director and becomes friendly with him. The friendship sometimes becomes so strong that the director even becomes a friend, philosopher, guide and mentor for the hero.
We did see this in case of Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram. Till a few days ago, Trivikram was Pawan’s alter ego. His word was final for Pawan Kalyan. Even Pawan’s choice of films too was dictated by Trivikram.
Similar friendship, it appears, has blossomed between Bunny and director Harish Shankar. Harish became close to Bunny during the DJ filming. They have been refularly meeting and though they do not have any project together, they keep discussing a lot of things.
Sources say they have graduated from calling each other sir to addressing one another in the first person singular. What more, Harish is said to be the reason behind Bunny mending fences with Pawan Kalyan. It was Harish, a great conversationist, who made Bunny realize that it was important to iron out differences with Pawan.
