Rana Daggubati’s father tries to stop Mausam’s release in the south

If reliable reports coming from the South are to be believed, then a very powerful lobby from Hyderabad helmed by producer Suresh Babu who is Rana Daggubati's father, is targeting for ban on Pankaj Kapoor's Mausam in the South.

Says a source, "It's a dispute between one of the Mausam producers Madhu Mantena and Suresh Babu. Sauresh Babu claims Mantena owes him Rs. 3 crores from an earlier deal during the release of Rann that Mantena had produced. Mantena, however, is clear that whatever the financial dispute over Rann, it does not involve Mantena. In retaliation, Suresh Babu has used his huge influence in the South for distributors and exhibitors to boycott Mausam unless the Rs. 3-crore alleged dues are cleared."

Mantena is evasive on the matter. He finally admits, "Yes, there is an issue with Rana's father. We're trying to solve it amicably. But there seems no scope for discussion."

When contacted Rana Daggubati did not deny the dispute between his dad and Mantena.

Says Rana, "I'm a professional actor and not too linked with the production and distribution arm of the company. With regards to this particular matter, I'm not too sure of the details of the deal structure that Madhu had with the company in the past. It wouldn't be right for me to comment on this."
