IF THEY CONTINUE TO BLACKMAIL ME I`LL HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO FIGHT BACK

For the first time since lodging a police complaint against distributors Kaali Sudheer, Abhishek Nama and Muthyala Raju, filmmaker Puri Jagannadh breaks his silence. In an exclusive statement to Hyderabad Times, Puri reveals his side of the story...

THE BACKSTORY

Before the release of Loafer, Abhishek Nama and Kaali Sudheer came to my office and requested me to sign five movies under their banner. Likewise, Muthyala Ramdas also asked me to do a film for his banner. However, I refrained because I realised that they had a hidden agenda. They wanted to tie up with me only so that they can make me liable for their losses and financial burdens by announcing films with me.

My doubts proved to be right.During Loafer's promotions, Muthyala Ramdas stated to the press: `Puri Jagannadh is distributor's director... if we end up suffering losses, he will take care of us. He is such a nice gentleman...' Why did he have to say that?
Sudheer has now been alleging now that he has nothing to do with Loafer; but fact is that he told me, `Puri sir, we bought this film only because of you...We paid `7.5 cr for the Nizam rights...' Later, I found out from the producer that it wasn't true. They paid less than half of that sum.
