Director turned actor Sasikumar after having taken over the production of his directorial venture ‘Eesan’, which was earlier planned as actor Vikram’s first home production has been in talks with distributors to sell the film off.
However he is being seen as a ‘different’ person in distribution circles. The reason is said to be the exorbitant rate quoted by him.Sources say Sasikumar, who has completed the film at a budget of Rs.8 crores, is reportedly trying to sell the film off for Rs.20 crores.
When asked as to what was the reason behind him quoting such a high rate for a medium-budget film, Sasikumar has this to say: “My earlier film ‘Nadodigal’ collected an overall sum of Rs.26 crores; it’s an established fact. However, this time for ‘Eesan’, I’m only demanding Rs.20 crores, which is actually Rs.6 crore less than the profit earned by Nadodigal!”
