Powerstar Pawan Kalyan, who tried his hands at direction with Johnny, had many times expressed his interest in other departments of film-making too. Though he thinks the screenplay writer in him had cheated on him in the case of Johnny, he is once again testing waters as a story and screenplay writer with Sardaar Gabbar Singh.
As it is earlier reported, Pawan Kalyan himself, had penned the story and screenplay for his next offering Sardaar, which is a sequel of Gabbar Singh. Other than that, the latest reports inform that he is going to design the songs and action for the film. The actor pulled off a similar job for the films Khushi and Gudumba Shankar. Looks like Pawan is involving quite a lot in the making of Sardaar Gabbar Singh as he had also personally visited the places to scout locations.
However, this extra care of the actor is being misunderstood by many as an involvement in other's job. This has also given a scope for the gossipmongers to raise doubts on the director Bobby's actual role in the film. In an interview with Nagaraj Goud of Hans India daily, Producer Sharath Marrar revealed that Pawan Kalyan has the final say on the creative side of the film and he is monitoring the film with the help of his friend Harish Pai, since Gabbar Singh is a brand.
