Vijay’s fantasy thriller Puli bit the dust at the box office and did not augur well for the stakeholders in the film. It was touted to be made at a whopping budget of Rs. 100 crores and the film, according to trade sources, did not break even for distributors across various territories.
Now, Sridevi, who was signed for the project to play an important role, has filed a complaint in the Tamil Nadu Film Producers’ Council saying that she has not been paid Rs. 50 lakhs yet in her salary.
This has surprised everyone since the producers of Puli were already in the news on the eve of film’s release for not paying the technicians worked in the movie.
