'Nenu Monarch ni, nannevaroo mosam cheyaleru (I am a Monarch)' is an iconic dialogues uttered by Prakash Raj in Pawan Kalyan's 90s film, Suswagatam. According to the current buzz in film circles, top directing Trivikram is allegedly behaving like Prakash Raj's character in real life.
It is known that Trivikram is currently directing Pawan Kalyan's 25th film, PK25. Even though it is just a family entertainer, he has reportedly made the producer spend more than Rs 100 Cr already for the sake of expensive sets, graphics work etc. Significant amount of money is said to be going towards high interests from finances, high number of working days, delays etc.
It is undeniable that the lethal PK-Trivikram combo is fetching whopping amounts to the producer from various rights but even Rs 120 Cr pre-release business may just help the producer only get break even, suggest reports.
Producer S. Radha Krishna, who has been making movies with only Trivikram, doesn't have the courage to ask him on either the expenses or delay in shooting and announcing title. Pawan on the other hand completely trusts Trivikram, and he is more immersed in political discussions with Jana Sena team. With no one to question him, Trivikram is allegedly taking arbitrary decisions both money-wise and time-wise.
Trivikram's next film, NTR28, will also be bankrolled by Radha Karishna.
