Prakash Rai debute directorial kannada film in trouble

When Prakash Rai decided to turn director and that too on home turf, it generated huge buzz. The actor and film-maker chose to remake his hit film Abhiyum Naanum in Kannada, which will be titled "Naanu Nanna Kanasu".

Prakash had pencilled in Ramya to play the lead, which was essayed by Trisha in the original. All was going well until the day before Ramya was set to leave for Coorg, where the first schedule of the movie was supposed to be held. The crew of the film has gone ahead with the shoot without the lead actress.

Sources say that there were some budget problems because of which Prakash and Ramya parted ways. If you are thinking how much money kannada actress ramya take per film is, then the answer is approximately 30 lakh. Apparently, the makers — Prakash and B Suresh — had offered her Rs 16 lakh, which is less than half Ramya’s current market value and a friend of ramya says "She will not compromise on her remuneration because then everyone would expect her to do a film for the same amount.”

While Prakash and Suresh remained inaccessible as they’re shooting at the Kelagoor tea estate in Chickmagalur, co-producer Shailaja Nag says, “It’s a rather unfortunate development"

Now big buzz in kannada film industry is who will replace Ramya. And we fot the answer from Shailaja Nag that Amulya to step into Ramya’s shoes. Amulya's first flick "Cheluvina Chittara" was a huge hit and now she’s busy wrapping up Premism and will join the Naanu Nanna Kanasu team soon.
