NTR Kathanayakudu, which released on January 9, incurred losses after which actor Balayya decided to give the distribution rights of NTR Mahanayakudu for free to compensate the losses.
Now, there is a twist in the tale. MRV Prasad, who has been marketing the film has convinced Balayya to not give the rights for free. It says that the actor has entrusted the job of selling distribution rights to Prasad.
It was Sai Korrapati, one of the co-producers, who distributed the first part in Vizag, Krishna and ceded areas. However, MRV Prasad is not going to sell the rights to Korrapati and instead, he will be distributing the films in these areas.
The makers have also decided to return 25% of the losses. Since distributors are quoting new rates for NTR Mahanayakudu, it might be difficult to sell the film. Some distributors have planned to take the 25% compensation and not buy the film at all.
