‘Puli’ producers claim Sridevi’s husband demanded more money

After actress lodged a complaint at the Mumbai producers’ council stating that she was yet to be paid Rs 50 lakhs as her remuneration for the film ‘Puli’, the producers Thameens and P.T Selvakumar claim they don’t owe her a single penny. In a four-page long statement, they said that they signed the veteran actress out of respect and agreed to pay Rs 2.7 crore as her remuneration excluding Rs 30 lakhs service tax.

They also stated that Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor had asked for extra pay since they were planning to release the film in other languages too, and eventually paid her 20 percent of the film’s Hindi satellite rights, which was Rs.55 lakh, and Rs.15 lakh for the dubbed Telugu version.
