Rajinikanth says that it is unfair on the part of distributors to cry foul if a film does not meet their expectations. At the audio launch of Vikram Prabhu’s Nerrupu Da, Rajini said, “Producers tend to create hype to promote their product. A distributor or an exhibitor shouldn’t get carried away by the business tactics of a producer. They should consult veterans in the field before purchasing a film — they should ensure that the numbers for which they buy a film is affordable for them. They should be in a safe zone. It is unfair to cry foul when the figures do not meet your expectations after purchasing a film for a heavy price.”
