Sitting comfortable with good show in the box office from ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ director Guruprasad has signed two Kannada film offers for direction at Rs.63 lakhs each as his payment for direction. It is not true that I have signed a turnkey project for Rs.54 lakhs Guruprasad clarified the rumor spread out by producer of ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ Sanathkumar. Sanathkumar told the media on Guruprsad project at the get together of the film success at Press Club of Bangalore recently.
Both Guruprasad and Sanathkumar departing after ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ in friendship are not in talking terms but Guruprasad striving in his own to take ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ to the greater heights. One such work he explained was the ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ show on the 50th day at PVR for the entire Kannada cinema industry. Guruprasad is booking the 260 seats screen at PVR on either one Saturday or Sunday. Guruprasad right now is bargaining on the ticket price with the PVR management. Instead of Rs.150 per ticket on Saturday and Sunday he is asking PVR management to fix Rs.80 as ticket price.
What will be the net profit for the producer of ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ at the 100th day? Guruprasad says it will be not less than Rs.2.5 crores profit.
