The verdict is out: despite Sun Pictures’ shout from the roof-top, the box-office collections of Dhanush’s latest offering ‘Mappillai’ are far from encouraging. It is said that Dhanush, who had been on ‘Cloud Nine Movies’ prior to the release of this film after having delivered four consecutive hits including ‘Aadukalam’, has been brought to the Earth with a thud.
Notwithstanding the fact that film hasn’t been going great, Dhanush has reportedly hiked his fee per film by a whopping Rs.1.5 crores. Observers point out that the ‘hike’ at a wrong time might have an adverse impact on his career as he doesn’t have that manyprojects in Tamil except ‘Irandaam Ulagam’. Dhanush is reportedly not all worried about his standing in the industry and is hoping that his upcoming film ‘Irandaam Ulagam’, directed by his elder brother Selvaraghavan, would help him retrieve the lost ground in Kollywood.
Reports say that superstar Rajnikanth wasn’t amused when he saw the promos of the film ‘Maapillai’ on television as the repeated visuals showed his (Rajni’s) voice saying a set of dialogues (as he uttered in the original). Rajnikanth reportedly spoke to the filmmaker and had his voice taken off from the promos as the film didn’t star him.
