Why No IT Raids on Khaidi No 150?
Yesterday’s Income Tax raids on ‘Gauthami Puthra Satakarni’ film office and the houses of director Krish, producers Rajiv Reddy and Bibo Srinu along with distributors Sai Korrapati and Sudhakar Reddy generated shock waves in Telugu film industry. Despite GPS film makers haven’t announced any official shares or pre release business figures and kept every detail confidential yet the accounts of First Frame banner came under IT scanner.
Now that ‘Khaidi No 150’ from Mega Star Chiranjeevi is the parallel big film released in the same Pongal season, industry sources are suspecting similar raids on Konidela Production office too. In fact, Allu Aravind officially announced the Box Office figures of more than Rs. 100 Crores which should have definitely fell in IT purview.
Meanwhile, a section of film sources also commented on IT sleuths have personally visited Ramcharan and verified the account statements which are of course no way connected with Aravind’s tall claims. Nevertheless, ‘Khaidi No 150’ was released through Geetha distribution and Allu Aravind’s allied network in major territories of two Telugu states.
Ramcharan cleverly managed the show keeping Allu Aravind, VV Vinayak in the front to project ‘Khaidi No 150’ as biggest blockbuster and himself remained behind the scene engineering the original numbers.
