Before the release of iSmart Shankar, both Puri Jagannath and hero Ram are going through a rough phase in their respective careers. They wanted to make the film at least a safe venture as Puri himself was producing it along with Charmme. Thus, the hero Ram decided to cut his remuneration and signed the film.
Now, the film has become a blockbuster and brought the duo onto success form in style. It has entered the profits zone and the team celebrated the success by visiting theatres across the Telugu states. This particular revenue model worked for everyone and Ram received more money after the film's release.
The buzz is that the whole team might reunite soon again for the sequel of iSmart Shankar with the same revenue model. Ram and Puri are excited about the same. More details on this will come out soon.
