Some called it discrepancies in script, and few termed it as ego-clashes between hero NTR Junior and his director Puri Jagan. But truth seems to be something far from our imagination as we dig deep into why the shooting of NTR-Puri flick got halted for 3 weeks sometime back.
At a specially erected police station set in Aluminum Factory, Puri Jagan is right now filming scenes on Jr NTR and others. According to some insider reports, it is heard that this flick was halted only due to producer Bandla Ganesh. As our hero’s latest release ‘Rabhasa’ became a dud, Ganesh demanded young tiger cut his remuneration down to a chunk. Similarly he asked Puri Jagan to downsize his remuneration as none of this director’s latest ventures are blockbusters. So what happened finally?
Jr NTR has given up 5 crores of his remuneration and Puri decided to forgo 3 croes of his pay packet to reduce Ganesh’s budget by 8 crores, says a source. In fact this is a good move as it will save producer even before the film gets released.
