For producer Suresh, it was not really easy to release Eradane Maduve. Though the film was made with a modest budget, he was finding it difficult. It was then that director Dinesh Baboo tried to help him out. For all his films, Baboo retains the story rights of the film for other languages as he himself writes all the films he directs. He promised to give Suresh Rs 5 lakh from the Telugu remake rights of the film, which he has already directed for a Telugu producer. But with Eradane Maduve turning out to be a hit, Suresh directly called up the producer of Mogudu Pellala Pelli and demanded Rs 25 lakh and threatened that he would get a court stay on the film otherwise. Eradane Maduve has already evinced interest of Tamil and Hindi film makers who are in talks to buy the remake rights in those languages.
It is a well-known fact in Sandalwood that Dinesh Baboo retains the story rights of his films. In fact, though there is hardly any agreements signed in the film industry, Baboo inserts the clause in the NOC he gives producers. It is surprising that Suresh did not know about this. Or is he just trying to make as much money as possible in the situation?
