Sandalwood is abuzz with Pailwaan since its release on September 12. Although the film has been praised for its entertaining factors, the makers and actors say that it influenced their lives in unimaginable ways. By now, you must be aware of the estimated budget of Pailwaan. Reports suggest that around Rs 45 crore was invested into creating the sports-centric film. In a recent interview with The Indian Express, Krishna revealed that Sudeep gave money to start the film. He also admitted to having experienced a few quarrels with the actor!
Krishna On His Relationship With Sudeep
When asked about the relationship he shares with the Superstar, Krishna said, "Sudeep and I share a 13-year old friendship. He was the hero in my first major film as a cinematographer and we have worked together in 4 films. There is a lot of trust between us."
Why Did They Fight Then?
Similar to every director-actor duo, Sudeep and Krishna also indulge in discussions and arguments concerning their film. "Cinema is a common connection for both of us. When we quarrel, it is only about the content."
Kiccha Financed The Film
In previous interviews, Krishna revealed to the media that he had no monetary backup when he envisioned Pailwaan. We are taken aback upon hearing that Sudeep did not even accept remuneration for the movie.
Krishna told the publication, "He helped start Pailwaan by giving us money. So it's important that we didn't misuse or disappoint him because he was standing by us."
Pailwaan Was A Safe Bet, Says Krishna
Pailwaan is one-of-its-kind in Sandalwood. But, it takes a lot more than just an idea to create a film based on sports in an industry that is driven by the mass audience. Talking about this, Krishna said, "It's a safe bet because everyone already knows the climax. The hero is going to win and the audience, naturally, doesn't expect anything beyond. You tell a story and if it's a good one, it will work."
