For the present generation, Devi Sri Prasad might have been an uncrowned king of Tollywood’s music industry (going by the number of hits he delivered consistently including his latest Duvvada Jagnnadham which topped the list of chart busters), but his maiden live show in Australia and New Zealand turned out to be an utter flop. Yes, you read it right. High ticket price, poor turn out has dampened the hopes of organisers leaving them in total despair, loss.
Allegedly, Devi and his team of singers, musicians have charged a Rs 1.5 Crore bomb as fee. And the event organisers have priced the tickets at whopping 200 USD in order to recover monies. This is considered as huge given that even the ticket of Baahubali was priced at 30 USD and that had received a flak from a section of movie lovers in abroad. For reasons well-known to Devi & team, the reception was poor incurring hefty losses to the event organisers.
