In the recent times, we haven’t seen any big producer coming out and announcing the collections of a film officially. But star producer and ace distributor Allu Arvind is taking a different path for Megastar Chiru’s Khaidi No. 150, which is giving raise to many doubts.
Forget about why Arvind is sharing the details of film’s collections in the first place, but now that he is officially claiming 100+ crores before media, he can’t go back on what he said when Income Tax officials quiz him about the same. As they are openly announcing through paper ads that the film has grossed 106 crores and else, it could be understood that all the accounts are super perfect, and everything is white money. But that could spin a trouble for the crew of the film.
Needless to say, from Vinayak to Ratnavelu, Kajal to Devi Sri Prasad, the pay packet is more than a crore in everyone’s case. By any chance if IT sleuths want to check and verify the accounts of Khaidi No. 150 surely they are going to scan the payments given to this costly cast and crew as well. If Arvind continues to flaunt their white money through paper ads then the crew would be at the receiving end, aren’t they? Once IT department starts checking the payments, they will sure end up digging out total accounts of those celebs including their other film deals and investments.
At the same time, many other big producers are feeling that Khaidi No. 150 makers should not flaunt their collection registers this way. Tomorrow if for any other big film, collections are not shared, then that will trigger unnecessary feuds between fans in this era of social media mud slinging.
