Chennai: Director N.S.R. Prasad, who has teamed up with actor Navdeep for upcoming Telugu comedy `Natudu`, says he is grateful to Navdeep for agreeing to work with him despite his recent streak of failures.
Prasad, who has directed two Telugu films `Nireekshana` and `Shatruvu`, hasn`t had a single hit in his career yet.
`Nowadays more than the script, actors are bothered about a director`s hits and flops. But Navdeep was an exception because he agreed to do the film because he loved my script. He wasn`t bothered about my failures. I will be indebted to him all my life for that,`.
The film has an unconventional story.
`He told me that he is taking a risk by doing this unconventional story, but he wanted some variety in his films. Hence he agreed to do it. I`m hoping the film will give me my much needed hit,` he added.
`It is very courageous of Navdeep to even agree to do the film. The story revolves around a guy who trades relationships for a living. It`s a very unconventional story,` he said.
Produced by Ramesh Babu Koppula, the film is gearing up for release soon.
