‘Shakti’ has been the buzz word from few days in film circles. Craze for this Junior Ntr project is one of the highest in recent times not just because it has Young Tiger but the subject of socio fantasy mixed with star cast like Ileana, Pooja Bedi, Manjari Phadnis have increased the expectations of audience.
Externally everything about ‘Shakti’ looks exhilarating including the banner of Vyjayanthi. Apparently this is where internal talk is creating tremors for producer Aswini Dutt. Yes, inner sources of ‘Shakti’ are worried about the budget that is pumped into production. Although movie was started with an intention to bind up in Rs.30 to 40 crores, now it is heard that nearly 25 to 30% of the budget was shot up and Aswini Dutt’s relatives monitoring the financial dealings are making a hue and cry of Meher Ramesh and Junior Ntr for their extended schedules and lavish spending.
Of course Vyjayanthi is synonymous for lavishness and producer like Aswini Dutt frightened by the budget figures look something more shocking. Jr. NTR is the single mantra to save ‘Shakti.’ Let us wait and see, what happens.
