Mahanati success is proving to be a headache for Prince Mahesh Babu. No!! It's not affecting his film's prospects nor tearing into his revenues. This is a problem of sharing the profits between two producers of his film with director Vamsi Paidipally.
Mahesh Babu's 25th film, being directed by Vamsi, is being bankrolled by hit producer Dil Raju and Aswini Dutt of Vyjayanthi Movies. Initialy, it was agreed that Dil Raju would get the major share while, Aswini Dutt, who has been suffering one flop after another, would get the smaller share. But, now Mahanati has happened. This film, bankrolled by his daughters and directed by his son-in-law is a runaway hit and has helped the Vyjayanthi bounce back. Now, a buoyed up Vyjayanthi wants a bigger share commensurate with their status. So, this has led to a bad blood between the two producers.
We have reliably learnt that Mahesh Babu himself has stepped in to broker peace between the two producers.
