Veera Shankar's efforts paid off, gets 25 Lakhs

First of its kind, the co-ordinating committee has decided that producer MS Raju has to pay 25Lakhs to director Veera Shankar.Earlier a co-ordinating committee was put in place after Veera Shankar lodged a complaint with the film chamber that MS Raju copied episodes from his Kannada film Namma Basava without his consent. He polled support from the directors in the industry and that led to the setting up of a co-ordinating committee consisting of equal number of producers and directors. The committee would watch both the films and then decide if the case was legitimate.

According to reliable sources, the committee is convinced about the complaint and offered a negotiation payout of 25 Lakhs to Veera Shankar from MS Raju. It has to be seen if this would mark a new turn with Tollywood makers when it comes to free lifting.
