Devi Putrudu to collect 25 crores
According to MS Raju, the ambitious producer of Devi Putrudu, this film is poised to collect a share of 25 crores in the total run. The producer before the start of the film made this statement and even after the film made for the release, MS Raju is very confident of the unprecedented success of Devi Putrudu. According to him, this film is going to prove the stamina of Telugu cinema. This film made with a budget of 15 crores and is boasting of special effects worth 22 minutes. The highest share collected by any movie in Telugu cinema industry being 16 crores, one wonders how the task of 25 crores would be achieved without rising the prices of tickets. On the other hand, Balayya's 'Narasimha Naidu' is made with a realistic budget of 6 crores. Chiru's Mrigaraju too is made with a high budget of 15 crores. The morale of the story is that even if Narasimha Naidu collects the half share of the production cost of either Devi Putrudu or Mrigaraju, it would be a super grosser. We got to wait and see, if the so called big budgets does matter to the audience or not.
