Mega Star Chiranjeevi attained immense stardom with his blockbuster film Gang Leader. The film starring Chiranjeevi, Vijayashanti,Rao Gopala Rao and directed by Vijaya Bapineedu created a sensation at that time. The film broke all records showing Chiranjeevi’s star power.
However, inside talk is when Vijaya Bapineedu narrated the story of Gang Leader to Chiranjeevi he rejected it saying he did not like the story. Then Bapineedu narrated the same to Paruchuri brothers who promised to make changes in three days.
Paruchuri Brothers narrated the changed version and told the same to Chiranjeevi. Chiranjeevi at once gave a green signal to the project. In the story narrated by Vijaya Bapineedu, All the friends of the hero get killed along with Murali Mohan, and Paruchuri questioned ‘ If everyone gets killed, where is Hero’s gang and how the title Gang Leader justified’.
They changed the story and turned Vijayashanti and Rao Gopala Rao’s characters even more powerful.
