Vinaya Vidheya Rama
. The highly expected movie didn't make big at the box office. Boyapati Srinu has a script in his hands and he had okayed it with Nandamuri Balakrishna. With the script, he has been waiting for the right producer. Boyapati Srinu stated that his movie will have a budget of Rs 60+ crores. But no producer is willing to make a movie with this heavy budget, as Balakrishna’s previous movies NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu didn't do well at the box office.
When Boyapati Srinu approached to produces this movie, Raju denied doing this as it seems to be an over-budget movie. He also stated that if Boyapati minimizes his budget for Rs 40 crores, he might produce it. But, Boyapati is not in the mood to minimize the budget and had been expecting the right producer to bankroll this project of 60 + crore.
