Manchu Manoj Kumar, Kiriti Karbanda starrer films ‘Mr.Nookayya” is being hitting the screens today with 53 regular prints all over the world. Due to financial crisis and over budget of the film and lack of business for the areas in AP, the picture prints have been delayed and and they were delivered in the early hours of 5am today. Morning shows cannot able to be screened in some long distance areas like vizag, Srikakulam, Vizayanagaram, Nellore.
The little birdie in film nagar said that the Cost of production of this film incurred Rs.11 cr. Hero Manoj kumar was paid with a whopping amount of Rs.1.25 cr. Actually the hero recommended the cameraman Rajasekhar and Music director Yuvan sankar Raja and promised the producer to deduct some portion of their remunerations of Rs.10 laks and Rs.15 lakhs respectively in his remuneration. But those remunerations were also paid by Producer to them directly and the hero has not accepted to reduce those remunerations in his account as he promised before and also he has collected Rs.6 lakhs for his miscellaneous expenses from the producers.
Once shooting was also halted when the shooting was going on at the outside of RFC main gate due to this hero slapped someone who came to see the shooting there . Producers are also not thinking about the budget of the film and how much it goes in the market. Heroes in the film industry are dictating the producers according to their convenience. Director has promised the producer if the title is Mr.Nokia for this film, the Nokia Company has promised him to pay Rs.75 lakhs by cash to the producers. But shockingly, instead of paying the cash by Nokia company, they have lodged a complaint on the producers and went to court for stay for not getting the permission of the title. The issue was settled after the intervention and arbitration of the AP Film Chamber of commerce.
Like that director also cheated the Producers. Ultimately, the producers are the losers and they are survived with debts after the release. Even after 80years of Tollywood, No producer is taking the lessons out of these crucial experiences. We hope even now, the producers will open their eyes widely with these experiences or otherwise they have to meet their own fate. Let us hope that the picture will do good at BO
