Balayya bids adieu to co-producers?

Nandamuri star Balakrishna, who wanted to make a biopic on his own has reportedly paid the share of co-producers Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri and bid adieu to both of them. Now, the much-hyped ‘N.T.R’ will be made under NBK films. “Balakrishna paid Rs 6 crore each to co-producers Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri and now they are no more associated as co-producers for this big-ticket film,” says a source, close to the family.
For quite some time, there were reports that Balakrishna wants to make his dad’s film on his own without compromising on the budget or on technical values. “Vishnu and Sai Korrapati had put some money initially when the project took off last October. Balakrishna could have reimbursed the actual money spent by them. Instead, he worked out some profits and now paid Rs 12 crore for both of them, because they were associated with the project for more than one year and didn’t want to disappoint them.
Now, decks are cleared for NBK Films to be the sole producer of ‘NTR’, a dream project of the Nandamuri family,” the source added. As Balakrishna’s family members are also being involved with his co-brother PRV Prasad handling the production, the film falls rightly on the lap of the Nandamuri clan, the source concludes.
