Just for getting one branded belt in those days receiving Rs.10000 from Saurav the challenging star Darshan given Rs.6 lakhs to Saurav in his difficult days!
This is true story of those days narrated by friends of long time Darshan and Saurav on Monday morning at the audio release of ‘Nee Bandhu Nintaga’.
I have seen branded belt only from Saurav. Nanage Thinsiddu Unsiddu Yee Saurav. He insisted that I should be there in ‘Boothayi Makkalu’. I was not given payment. But Saurav gave it from his payment. That 10000 were badly needed for me! It made lot of changes to me. So giving lakhs to him when he had decided to go away from the industry was my responsibility.
The narration of Darshan was also related to the cup of tea Saurav was inviting. He used to come at 11.30 pm in the night in his bike. Then we never used to go to any canteen but to Ooty – imagine from Mysore to Ooty for having cup of tea. Darshan held his friend strongly at one point of time.
Saurav was also emotional in his speech. I am here today because of Darshan he said. This film ‘Nee Bandhu Nintaga’ is only because of him he pointed.
