Director Puri Jagannath and producer DVV Danayya have settled their issue over the remuneration and cleared the way for the release of Pawan Kalyan's much-hyped film Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu. But the Directors' Association has reportedly threatened to halt its release on October 18, if the director and producer do not pay 10% commission to it.
It was recently reported that Puri Jagannath had lodged a complaint with the Directors and Producers' Association against DVV Danayya. In his complaint, the director had stated that the producer was not ready to pay his remuneration of Rs 4.5 crores for the movie Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu. He requested the Associations to get his payment.
But DVV Danayya's say was different on this issue. The producer had argued that Puri's miscalculations have overshot the budget. Hence, he had even requested him to trim his payment long back. Now, the duo has sorted issue after a closed door discussion and Puri is said to have compromised to accept Rs 3.5 crores instead of Rs 4.5 crores.
What is hindering the release of Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu is the 10% commission. The Directors' Association has approved a new rule in the General Body Meeting held on Sunday. As per the rule, if anyone lodges a written complaint with the Association, they need to pay the settlement fee.
However, the Directors' Association is demanding 10% commission from Rs 3.5 crores from the duo. But Puri-Danayya issue has been settled before the new rule was approved. How can this rule be applied to their issue? Now, it should be seen whether the Association would exclude their issue or anyone of Puri and Danayya would pay the commission.
