Scoop: VV Vinayak pays the price
scoop - VV Vinayak

9th February 2003
tell a friend

Narasimha Rao, the producer of Raasi Movies banner, has paid Rs 15 lakhs and Rs 10 lakhs as an advance to VV Vinayak and Prabhas respectively long time back for a film to be made from February 2003 onwards on Raasi Movies banner.

But, mean while VV Vinayak has got an irresistible offer of directing Chiranjeevi for the Telugu remake of Tamil film Ramana. Hence VV Vinayak has requested Narasimha Rao to delay the Prabhas project for 3 months so that he could complete the direction of Chiranjeevi film in the meantime.

Narasimha Rao has approached Dasari for justice. Dasari who used to solve the problems in the industry couple of years ago came into limelight by taking the initiative in solving this problem. He called up on VV Vinayak to discuss the issue and after much deliberation, VV Vinayak has accepted to pay 35 lakhs as compensation to Narasimha Rao for not honoring his commitment to direct the film on Raasi banner. VV Vinayak has given a signed-letter promising to pay 35 lakhs as compensation as soon as he receives the remuneration from Oscar Ravi Chandran for directing the remake of Ramana.

The entire episode has taken place without the knowledge of AP Film Directors Association. It is sad that VV Vinayak had to ditch two people - Samudra and Narasimha Rao - to get two projects (Chenna Kesava Reddy and remake of Ramana). Bala Krishna and Chiranjeevi are directly or indirectly responsible for the issues dealing with VV Vinayak. It is unfortunate to see ethics and moral attitudes are taking a back seat. The producer/director should have approached the AP Film Directors union and made it official.
