A Website reported that all isn't well between Ram Pothineni & 'iSmart Shankar' Producers Puri Jagannath & Charmee Kaur as the Lead Actor received only 50% of the payment promised to him. This is why Ram decided against promoting the flick and flew to abroad, as per the Website. It even speculated that few more members of the project including Mani Sharma is yet to get the complete payment.
Ram decided to silence the Website spreading baseless rumour. He replied to the Website's Tweet in this manner by tagging the Twitter handles of Puri and Charmee: 'LMAO!! I generally don't like to respond to such fake news..but in this case... "Bangaram andi vellu..'.
Needless to say, Ram shares a terrific rapport with both Puri and Charmee. They have decided to collaborate once again even before the release of 'iSmart Shankar' and also registered the title of the sequel with Film Chamber. That is how the equation has been prior to the release and post the theatrical outing. Why would Ram go against the Director who made him the biggest Mass Star among tier-2 heroes?
