The director, who has recently been under fire from Pawan fans regarding the project ‘Ustaad Bhagat Singh’, responds to criticism with song lyrics 

Director S Harish Shankar is currently busy with Pawan Kalyan's  Ustaad Bhagat Singh, the pooja ceremony of which was held recently on December 11 after repeated delays, controversies, and even a title change. The movie was speculated to be a remake of the hit Tamil movie ‘Theri’, starring Thalapathy Vijay. The news did not go well with Pawan’s fans, who are tired of his last few movies being remakes. They demanded an original flick. “#WeDontWantTheriRemake” topped Twitter trends as fans critiqued the director/writer. 

“Finally director @harish2you is relieved of scrutiny and speculation. He was hounded by the media and certain Twitter handles with negative articles and negative tweets. As the movie #UstaadBhagatSingh got launched today, he will be a peaceful man who can concentrate on work! (sic)” , tweeted Jeevi, a prominent Telugu film critic, on the day the filming began. 

Today, six days after the original tweet, the director responded to the tweet with lyrics from the 1971 hit song “Dum Maro Dum”. “Duniya ne hum ko diyaa kyaa ? Duniya se hum ne liyaa kyaa ? Hum sab kee pawraa kare kyon ? Sab ne humaaraa kiyaa kyaa ? (sic)” (What has the world given me? What have I taken from the world? Why should I worry about others? What have they done to me?), read the director’s tweet. By quoting the song, Harish implied that criticism does not stop him.

In other news, Team ‘Ustaad Bhagat Singh’ has clarified that the film will not be a remake of ‘Theri’. Instead, the new film's script is inspired by the theme of ‘Theri’ and would not be more of its adaptation than a faithful remake.
