Rajnikanth promises to make good the loss on Dhanush’s ’3′
When Dhanush’s ‘Kolaveri D’ became a huge rage across the country, little did people know that the film ‘3’ would bomb at the box office. Owing to the success of the song, Andhra based distributor Natty Kumar invested about Rs 6 crore on the dubbed Telugu version and apparently was aghast when the film failed.
A devastated Natty was quoted saying, “I secured the distribution rights of the Telugu version of 3 for a whopping sum of Rs 4.3 crores, though I was aware that Dhanush’s market in Andhra Pradesh wasn’t more than Rs 10 lakhs. Even my friends criticised me for risking such a huge sum on the film.
I did so as I had huge faith in the family members of superstar Rajnikanth. I felt Aishwaryaa’s debut directorial venture would do well in Andhra Pradesh.”
Natty’s blame game did not end here. He went on to blame Dhanush, Aishwarya and Shruti Hassan saying, “Dhanush and Aishwaryaa didn’t keep their promise to visit Hyderabad on April 1 for promotions.
Besides, they didn’t attend the film’s premiere show, which disappointed me even more. I have incurred huge losses because of the film’s poor showing.”
Not to mention here that Rajnikanth is upset with these remarks and has offered to make good the loss of Natty. He has even promised to get his daughter and son-in-law out of this major financial mess. Prior to this, Rajni Sir had compensated distributors who faced losses on his film Kuselan.
