ETimes now brings you a piece of BIG NEWS, FIRST and EXCLUSIVE, that the film’s producer Puri Jagannadh has decided to compensate the distributors who have suffered. Puri is getting ready to fly to Hyderabad and meet those distributors and execute the compensation soon. Srinu confirms with ETimes that Puri is looking into the matter.
Coming back to the fate of ‘Liger’, Srinu had blamed the social media and the recent ban culture. Talking to ETimes, he had said, “Do we realise that in our quest of banning actors and filmmakers, based on preconceived notions, we are ruining poor families of poor crew members. The movies will decrease and lead to chaos in several families who depend on it for their daily meal. The movie industry is going through a very bad phase and social media users who are members of the unjustified ban culture that has come to dominate, should be ignored. There seems to be a concerted campaign against us, almost every day. This is totally uncalled for. See the film and if you don’t like it, thrash it. But how can you thrash it before it has been released and you haven’t seen it?”
Anyway, we must say that Puri is being human. It maybe recalled that Salman had compensated the distributors who lost money on the failure of ‘Tubelight’.
The Hindi version of ‘Liger’ was released by Karan Johar through Anil Thadani. No distributors involved in that.
