Despite being an A-list director, Puri Jagannath has been finding good offers extremely difficult to come by.
Against this backdrop, the opportunity to direct Balakrishna has come as a huge relief for him. But the project is not without its riders.
Apparently, Puri Jagan has agreed to make the film within Rs 25 crore including his remuneration and excluding Balayya's remuneration.
At the same time, the producer has made it clear that there should be no compromise on quality and songs, etc have to be shot in foreign locations. This is indeed a real challenge for Puri.
Considering that the cost of production has skyrocketed in recent times, keeping everything under control without compromising on quality, especially for a big-hero film is no joke.
Sources say that Puri intends to complete the movie in Rs 20 crore. That wold leave him with a remuneration of Rs 5 crore which is half of what he normally takes. It's compromise time for Puri
