The trickster told Venky that his movie was a great movie and promised him they would nominate his movie to the film festival.

The trickster told Venky that he should pay Rs 11,000 as processing fee to nominate his film in different categories of the film festival and demanded Venky to send Rs 66,000 to an account suggested by him.
