Ram Gopal Varma’s recently released film officer starring Nagarjuna is receiving mixed reviews and has earned below the average at the Box Office. In some parts, the film has drastically failed and managed to earn just a few lakhs. Well, this has somehow affected the distributors of the film.
According to reports, one of the distributors named Subramanyam recently addressed the media and shared his view over the failure of film Officer. He said that neither Nagarjuna nor director RGV came up to help and that he feels to commit suicide.
He was quoted as saying, “The makers of Officer approached me and asked for finance. I gave them Rs 1.3 crore. Ram Gopal Varma started the shoot and before the completion of Officer, when I contacted the makers and asked them to return my money, they did not respond. They also asked me to knock on the door of the court. I thought, if I go to court, it will take a lot of time. So I decided to meet Ram Gopal Varma, and asked for Officer rights for the Godavari area in lieu of my amount (sic).”
He added, “But clever director Ram Gopal Varma said to me, he would sell the rights of entire Andhra region, not just one area. Though I was not impressed with the trailer and teaser of Officer, I was forced to buy the film. Officer makers did not leave any option for me, so I paid a total of Rs 3.50 crore and bought the rights of Officer for Andhra region. I thought it’s a Nagarjuna film, so it could make good profits, but I was wrong (sic).”
Officer is getting mixed reviews from the audience and has earned below the expectations at the Box Office. Produced by Sudheer Chandra and Ram Gopal Varma under the banner, ‘Company’, Officer also stars Ajay and Sayaji Shinde in the key roles.
