We had earlier reported to our viewers that Ram’s adventure thriller with Praveen Sattaru has been shelved due to high budget estimates.
Ram and producer Ravi Kishore wanted to go ahead with the project despite the high budget quoted by Praveen Sattaru.
However, Ravi Kishore realized that the film would cost more than the estimates, which is not viable for Ram’s market. Therefore, he backed off even after spending so much money on the script and pre production until that point.
Ravi Kishore had reportedly spent Rs. 2 crore on story sittings and other pre production works before pulling out.
Ravi Kishore also convinced Ram that it would be a loss venture irrespective of the public response.
After initial hesitation, Ram was convinced with his uncle’s argument and let go of it. Praveen is now looking for a bigger star with big market to make the film possible.
The director’s previous film Garuda Vega was a huge cost failure in spite of positive word of mouth and glowing reviews.
