There are many classic examples in Tollywood on how film budgets go out of control due to lack of proper planning. Exceeding number of working days, participation of extremely large casting team, usage of advanced technical equipments, costly locations etc accumulate to become a big burden on producer’s head. Nandamuri Balakrishna’s prestigious 100th film ‘Gauthamiputhra Satakarni’ completed the first schedule few days ago in foreign locations of Morocco.
According to reports, budget for this schedule was locked at Rs. 5 Crores by producer Rajeev Reddy and director Krissh. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the two week schedule’s expenditure has been escalated by nearly 60 percent tolling the total to Rs.8 Crores. This might have surely upset director Krissh but that is how outdoor schedules are bound to shock the producers.
Beyond the extra budget went into making, entire team is so happy watching the final output. War episodes have reportedly come out with top notch quality which will surely leave audience spellbound in theaters. Hopefully, Krissh needs to curtail the expenditure in upcoming schedules so as to keep the project cost under control.
