Different film - Ravi Babu

Will be a big hit like old Soggadu - D Rama Naidu
Presenter Dr. D Rama Naidu said that he made the old classic Soggadu with Sobhan Babu long back and he opined that new Soggadu would become big hit like old Soggadu. He opined that Telugu Film Industry is going through lean patch with not more than 8% of success rate per annum. He urged the actors and technicians to cut down their remuneration to make sure that films are made in realistic budget. He asked producers to start the film with complete script so that wastage would be minimized. He opined that making 1000 feet worth of film would cost around 30 lakhs. The more wastage in film means more working days and high budget. He advised producers to treat filmmaking as business and follow the economics accordingly.
