Narayana Murthy who needs no introduction for his offbeat revolutionary movies. He has got huge fan base from a section of audience and gained his own image. Apart from left-leaning movies, Narayana Murthy was never part of regular commercial movies.
Temper director Puri Jagannadh is a great admirer and has great respect for Narayana Murthy. Puri dedicated his Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu to Narayana Murthy.
With the soft corner Puri has on the red star, he approached and offered a well-etched role to Narayana Murthy in Temper. Puri designed a special role for him opposite NTR but Narayana Murthy declined the offer.
As per the sources, when Puri met Narayana Murthy, he initially appeared postive to be part of Temper. But, after few days, he turned down the offer though the makers agreed to pay a good amount of remuneration. This shows the genuineness of Narayana Murthy towards his approach and dedication on his own genre of movies.
