Arundhati is the most memorable movie for Anushka. Arundhati has a place among the best lady oriented films of all time. That film where Anushka changed her fate… Actually, Mamata Mohan Das should have done it. Bad luck followed her. Chejetula gave up a great movie. 14 years after the release of Arundhati, Mamata Mohan Das revealed this shocking fact for the first time. This is a testament to how much luck plays a vital role in the industry.
Malemala Shyam Prasad Reddy is thinking of doing a lady oriented movie in the horror genre with director Kodi Ramakrishna. Mamata Mohan Das was chosen as the heroine. She also agreed to the project and signed. Later Rajamouli called and asked for Yamadonga film. They said OK to that film. Mamta Mohan Das’s manager said that Mallemala’s production house is not good. Mamata Mohan Das, who has no knowledge of the Telugu film industry, believed the manager’s words.
Shyam Prasad Reddy asked for three months but Mamata Mohandas did not agree. Finally you said that you will not do your movie. Rajamouli mentioned this during the shooting time of Yamadonga. You have to do Arundhati’s film. She said that you have made a big mistake by giving up. Those words seriously hurt Mamata Mohan Das. After the release of the film, Mamata Mohan Das came to know how correct Rajamouli’s prediction was. As he said, Mamata Mohan Das felt sad that he had given up on a film that would transform Dasha.
During the shooting of Arundhati movie, Mamata acted in disasters like Mohan Das Krishnarjuna, Victory and Homem. Mamata Mohan Das indirectly revealed that the producer was chased for months but gave up the golden offer. Meanwhile, Mamata Mohan Das was affected by cancer. He recovered after treatment. He said that he was recently affected by vitiligo. Mamata Mohandas said that she cried sitting in the dark in the room without being able to tell anyone for a few months. He said that this is why he told the world about his problem.
