Sahasam is one of the big budget movies of the year 2013 and its production cost is said to have crossed Rs 30 crores. The film, which has been in the making for a long time, has been delayed for long time due to several reasons. With the flick set to release in theatres on July 12, it has reportedly landed in another problem. The talk in the T-Town is that its lead actors Gopichand and Taapsee Pannu are yet to join its promotions.
Gopichand, who tied the knot with Reshma on May 12, had gone busy with the shooting of Sahasam immediately after his marriage, postponing his honeymoon. Now, the actor is on his honeymoon trip for two weeks. With this, the promotion of his most-awaited movie has taken a backseat. While he is on the tour, he called his co-star Taapsee Pannu and requested her to take part in its publicity events until he returns.
But Taapsee had committed to join Raghava Lawrence in shooting their first combo movie Muni 3. So the actress has moved on to shoot this movie after wrapping up Sahasam. She is also reportedly unavailable for the promotion of the Telugu film, which is produced by BVSN Prasad, who is said to be upset with the developments.
Reports suggest that BVSN Prasad, who has shelled out a whopping budget on the film Sahasam, is said to be quite skeptic about commercial success of the movie at the Box Office. The producer is reportedly afraid that it may not even return its production cost. It should be seen whether Gopichand and Taapsee will join the film unit in promoting it and save the producer or not.
