An oversight that caused duress!

              The fascinating biography of V.B.Rajendra Prasad titled “Dasarabullodu” by Mr Bhageeratha has many surprises including an anecdote that tells how the film maker was subject to duress due to his oversight during the making of the high-budget  film “RaamaKrishnulu” (1978).  The top-line film maker apparently received one lakh rupees of cash from his cousin in an envolope and he subsequently handed it over to the actor , who was supposed to receive only Rs75,000/- from him.  V.B.Rajendra Prasad realised his folly only after being alerted by his cousin and apparently checked with the actor next day. The actor admitted receiving the extra amount but took offence against the producer questioning him openly.
