Tollywood’s mass director Boyapati Sreenu received a shock with Vinaya Vidheya Rama which bombed at the Sankranthi box-office. Boyapati Sreenu has been criticized for his work and the makers claimed that he spent more than the required for the project. The film is said to be made on a budget of Rs 100 crores. Now Boyapati Sreenu is all set with his next that features Nandamuri Balakrishna in the lead role. The top director is quoting Rs 70 crores budget for this prestigious project.
Boyapati and Balayya are teaming up for the third time after two blockbusters Simha and Legend. The combo carries enough craze but none of NBK’s films made Rs 70 crores at the Tollywood box-office. His recent film NTR – Kathanayakudu ended up collecting Rs 20 crores which is poor. With Boyapati and Balakrishna struggling for success, Rs 70 crores budget is a huge risk. The script work of the film is currently on and Balakrishna is yet to take the final call on the film’s budget.
We have to wait to see if Balakrishna approves the budget or if he asks Boyapati to cut down the budget for the project.
