Many people, who have associated with Baahubali in some way, have earned crores. Noted producer-distributor Sai Korrapati is one among them. He reportedly earned huge profits by distributing Baahubali films in a few key areas in the domestic market. Well, the current buzz in film circles is that he is losing out all that money with his production ventures.
As per trade reports, Sai Korrapati hasn’t yet produced a genuine commercial hit after scoring a surprise super hit with ‘Oohalu Gusagusalde’ in 2014. Six films have come out from his banner in the last three years, and only ‘Jyo Achyutananda’ did fairly well.
‘Manamantha’ received overwhelming response from critics but the box office result was tragically poor. His latest film, ‘Yuddham Sharanam’ starring Naga Chaitanya became another debacle for his banner. He has reportedly lost 20-odd crores on all these films put together.
In the past, films produced by Korrapati used to receive critical acclaim at least and he was praised by many as a producer with taste and someone who believes in content-driven cinema. But, his recent films started losing out on content as well besides money. Take Patel Sir and Yuddham Sharanam for example.
Its time the passionate producer did introspection and found out what’s going wrong.
