Working with small heroes or freshers is never on the cards for writer-director Trivikram. Since his debut as a director, this talented filmmaker is always in awe of stars only. This fetish isn’t limited to just heroes and heroines, but he has a set of costly technicians with whom he wants to work always.
Latest edition to Trivikram’s technical team is cinematographer Rajeev Menon, the highly acclaimed camera man in the whole of India. His visual brilliance is known to all, but what’s unknown is how much he charges. Few sources revealed us Rajeev will not sign a film until if his pay check is more than a crore. Because it’s Rajeev Menon. After working for nearly 4 films in a row, and having that brotherly relation with Devi Sri Prasad, it’s being heard that Trivikram replaced him with Kolaveri guy Anirudh Ravichander. Currently this young sensation is a happening chap in Tamil circuits who’s charging a bomb, 1 crore nearly.
Already Samantha is zeroed for this film and rumour mills revealed long back that she’s paid nearly 2 crores to act with an younger hero like Nitin who falls in Tier-II category. If the budgets are dissected this way, then the total after production accounts to 50 crores investment and a big blockbuster leaves producers only with peanuts of profits. Why such costly affairs Trivikram sir?
