As a director when you plan your movie the budget becomes crucial and the most important component in that is the hero because he eats the lion’s share of the budget in the form of remuneration. Hence, there are those times when directors prefer to go for tier two heroes keeping the budget constraints in mind.
A recent report from Filmnagar reveals the talented director Venky Kudumula who scored a hit with the movie ‘Chalo’ is now planning for his next venture. As part of that, sources say he chose to work with the vibrant hero Nikhil Siddhartha because that would ensure the movie can be wrapped in 6 to 7 crores budget.
There are also reports that Venky narrated the story to the youth star Nithiin too but the budget issues are stopping him. Well, the trade analysts say it is better to go with Nithiin than Nikhil because Nikhil’s ‘Kirrak Party’ became a dud whereas Nithiin’s ‘Chal Mohana Ranga’ is emitting the right buzz. Let us see what will be Venky’s decision.
