The real reason for producer Dil Raju and actor Ravi Teja’s project being shelved is the actor’s remuneration.Ravi Teja had really liked the subject and had shown interest long back. Director Venu Sriram too had worked hard for more than a year on the script. “The subject would suit any actor, but Ravi Teja showed an interest. Dil Raju decided to produce it but Ravi Teja asked for a lot of money, which the producer denied. He categorically told Ravi that he would pay according to his market value. So after being on hold for a while, the project is finally shelved,” says a source.
Ravi Teja apparently asked for nearly Rs 9 crore, which Dil Raju felt was too high and offered around Rs 6 crore. “The project was launched and everything was finalised, including technicians and supporting artistes, but it was shelved due to this remuneration problem,” adds the source.Dil Raju now is planning to rope in another big star for the same subject.
