'Pushpa' director Sukumar to gift Rs. 1L (each) to crew-members
Pushpa: The Rise has received a huge positive response from all corners of the country. Its Hindi version alone has collected almost Rs. 50cr, a good run, and has been declared a hit. If the other versions are considered, the film is easily a superhit venture. While celebrating the success, its director Sukumar announced that he'll give Rs. 1L each to the crew members.
- The Allu Arjun-starrer has emerged a major crowd puller and its Hindi version toppling even a big budgeter like 83 comes as a real shock.
- The cricket drama, being led by Ranveer Singh, posed a threat to the Telugu red sandalwood-based film, but box office figures stunned all.
- So, it's only fitting to honor the crew members, who produced such a spectacle like Pushpa.
Speaking at the success meet held in Hyderabad, Sukumar thanked the crew members and said, "I know how difficult it would've been to work in the forest and extreme conditions." "I want to give back something to the crew for their hard work. I will give Rs. 1L each to the set boys, light men and those who handled the costume and production works."
