Tollywood Strike: Actors mounting Pressure

2

The Tollywood producers called off the shoots from August 1st to discuss about the possible solutions for their problems. All the active producers are meeting on a regular basis to discuss about the issues. The discussion about the OTT release cap, VPF charges and others were discussed but there is no debate about the remunerations of the stars. Though the producers are keen to slash down the paycheque of the stars, none of them will dare to discuss this with the star actors of Telugu cinema. Dil Raju who has been the face of Producers Guild for a while too is hesitant to meet the stars though he has been discussing this on a louder note in the Guild meetings.

The actors are not ready to wait for a longer time because of the strike. They are mounting pressure on their producers to resume the shoot. Balakrishna informed the same to Mythri Movie Makers. He wanted the next schedule to start immediately and the production house is left puzzled. Young actors like Nani and others too have informed their producers to solve the issues soon and resume the shoots.

The Producers Guild formed special committees to discuss about various issues and it would take some more time to get a clarity. We have to wait to see if the actors would wait for a long time or if they will mount pressure and resume the shoots.

Nani’s interesting move for Dasara

0

Natural Star Nani delivered a series of flops in the recent times. The actor is on a break and he will resume the shoot of Dasara soon. The film will be directed by a debutant Srikanth Odela, a protege of Sukumar. The makers allocated huge budget for Dasara but they are rethinking about the budget. There are speculations that there are discussions going on about the revision of the budget. Nani is now rethinking about the film and he is said to have slashed his remuneration for Dasara.

Nani is very confident on Dasara and his look got wide appreciation. The actor is not in a mood to cut down the film’s budget. Hence he slashed his remuneration. He will instead share the profits of Dasara after the release. Nani wants the makers to spend lavishly for the film and the discussions are going on. Nani can also pocket a good amount if the film ends up as a hit. Hope Nani’s strategy works well. The film is produced by SLV Cinemas and Keerthy Suresh is the leading lady in Dasara.

Nani is puzzled about Dasara

0

Natural Star Nani is in his dullest phase now. He delivered close to half a dozen flops and the actor needs to bounce back soon. His fans want him to be seen in a proper commercial film. The actor is on a break and he completed the first schedule of his next film Dasara, a rustic Telangana-based romantic drama. There are a lot of speculations going on about the film. Srikanth Odela, a protege of Sukumar is the director and there are disturbances between the director and the makers for some time.

Nani is also puzzled about the project. Dasara is the costliest film in Nani’s career and the makers are in talks to cut down the budget of the film. The makers want a cut in Nani’s remuneration for Dasara. Nani is tight-lipped for now and he would take a call on the project soon. Keerthy Suresh is the leading lady and SLV Cinemas are the producers. Nani also has couple of other projects in discussion and they would be finalized soon.

Natural Star Nani needs an MCA Badly

1

Nani is one actor who shot to fame with his acting skills and natural performances. After scoring back-to-back hits, he cemented his position and is busy with a set of films. Nani is the only Tollywood actor who has been consistently releasing three films per year. But things have changed a lot in the recent years. The actor hiked his fee and he charged Rs 15 crores for his recent film Ante Sundaraniki. MCA happens to be the last commercial success of the actor and his theatrical market has been shrinking from the past few releases. None of his recent films made profits for the distributors though the makers were left on the edge.

MCA released in the year 2017 and Nani failed to score a commercial hit in the last five years. Krishnarjuna Yudham, Devadas, Gang Leader ended up as disasters. Jersey received critical acclaim but the theatrical revenue was limited. Shyam Singha Roy ended up as a safe project for the producer and the distributors. V and Tuck Jagadish headed for direct OTT release and the distributors were relieved because of the move. Else, they would have lost big money. Ante Sundaraniki opened on a dull note all over the globe. The openings are not satisfactory and the weekend numbers are ok.

Mythri Movie Makers were super confident on the film but the reality is completely different. A top producer and distributor revealed that none of the distributors made profits through Nani’s films in the recent years. The theatrical rights of MCA were sold for Rs 30 crores and the film made huge profits. The theatrical rights of Ante Sundaraniki are sold for Rs 27 crores and the buyers are losing big which says that the theatrical market of Nani is shrinking. Mythri Movie Makers had to try hard to convince the distributors to close the deals. With a lineup of big-budget films ahead for the production house, the distributors paid Rs 28 crores for Ante Sundaraniki.

It all started after Nani switched from boy next door roles to experiments. Most of his experiments failed to impress the audience. His fans want him to return back to his favorite genre and do films like MCA and Nenu Local. The actor can pull of entertainment and action well. Three good songs and a couple of action episodes can make his films huge money-spinners. It’s high time for the actor to realize his strengths and do impressive films.

His next film Dasara is planned on a massive budget and there are discussions going on about the budget slash. Nani hasn’t signed a new film after Dasara and his fans are now requesting him to return back to comic roles instead of heading for experiments. For now, Nani is no longer a producer’s actor and his films are not reaping huge profits.

Director Vivek Athreya refused to trim first half of ‘Ante Sundaraniki’

1

The team of ‘Ante Sundaraniki’, which stars Nani and Nazriya, held a gala event to mark the film’s success.

On the occasion, director Vivek Athreya, who has been chastised for his lengthy screenplay despite a compelling tale, addressed the same issue.

‘Ante Sundaraniki’, which was released on June 10, is a heartwarming film with clean humour and emotions. But then, the movie clearly under-performed in terms of box office collections.

One of the major reasons quoted for that is the three hours long runtime. The first half especially is lengthy as per the reviews and also the feedback of the audience.

The director of the film, Vivek Athreya, refuses to accept that trimming some parts of the movie from the first half of the movie could have helped.

“When I could make a fast second half, I can make the first half similarly. But there are several connecting scenes between the first half and the second half. Those scenes have significance, particularly the childhood scenes. The film needs this runtime,” Vivek Athreya said, at the success event for ‘Ante Sundaraniki’.

While most of the scenes in the movie were quite relatable to youth and middle-aged audiences, only one section of Telugu media has found the run-time to be a problem, as per the movie team.

Messages from fans are very satisfying. ‘Ante Sundaraniki’ is a movie that is in the top order of my career. It takes a lot of guts to tell a story like this when there are a lot of easy ways. Those guts are in our director Vivek Athreya, our producers, in me, and everyone in our team. Even after two years, if anyone asks me to name a good Telugu film, Ante Sundaraniki will be one of the two or three names that will be mentioned”.

Nazriya who made her Telugu debut with the film thanked the audience profusely for the success. “I will miss the character of Leela. I thank my entire team and the audience for making it a big hit,” the actress said.

Producer Naveen Yerneni said Ante Sundaraniki is a classic film. “Ante Sundaraniki is a film that gave us a great feeling. A movie that will stay in our banner forever. This is a classic. It is a classic like Jandhyala’s films like Aha Naa Pellanta and Srivariki Premalekha. The congratulatory messages that started on the release day from US Premieres did not stop till now. Thanks to Nani Garu who believed in the story and made the film for us. I think this is the best performance for Nani,” he said.

Shocking: Nazriya paid huge for Ante Sundaraniki

1

Malayalam beauty Nazriya is married to actor Fahadh Faasil and she made her comeback to films recently. The actress is quite selective and is picking up interesting roles. She made her debut into Tollywood with Nani’s Ante Sundaraniki that released on Friday. Nani during his promotional interviews lauded the actress for signing the film. This left many in shock after the film’s release. The biggest shock is that the actress was reportedly paid Rs 2 crores for the film which is huge.

After the film’s release, the audience are left in shock about picking up Nazriya for the role. Most of them felt that the actress lost her charm and she lost her young looks. Nani’s predictions on finalizing Nazriya went wrong. Nazriya also never received such a fat paycheque in her career. Frankly speaking, she is not rushed with offers and is not in huge demand. Nani and the team of Ante Sundaraniki over hyped Nazriya. Ante Sundaraniki is a rom-com laced with entertainment and it is directed by Vivek Athreya. Mythri Movie Makers are the producers.
