Dil Raju & PVP to share post-release profits of Maharshi!
As Mahesh’s landmark movie 'Maharshi’ is being produced by three producers, Dil Raju, PVP and Ashwini Dutt, there prevailed some dispute on profit-sharing among these three. But with the intervention of Mahesh Babu, this issue was resolved amicably.
Initially, the movie has to be produced by Dil Raju alone but Mahesh intervened Ashwini Dutt in the middle as he promised to do a film on his banner before. Later, somehow PVP steeped into this mega project. As per sources, Ashwini Dutt sought Rs 10 crore as his share in 'Maharshi'. Dil Raju who handled the production raised an objection as the budget went beyond the initial estimates.
Finally, a settlement was made as Ashwini Dutt will receive 7crore rupees prior to the release of Maharshi and thereon he gets no payroll after the release of the movie. On the other side, Dil Raju and PVP will share the profits depending upon the performance of the movie at the Box-office. Due to the escalation of budget & the hefty profit demanded by Ashwini Dutt, 'Maharshi' has to become a massive hit to fetch profits for Dil Raju and PVP. Or else, They will end up incurring huge losses.
