Owing to the roaring business these sites making, producers also demanding huge sum for superstar films despite the result. Unexpectedly big Films like Prabhas’s Saaho and Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Syeraa Narasimha Reddy garnered less views than expected bringing huge loss to these platforms.

Also celebrities like Daggubati Suresh Babu and Allu Arjun said to be in plan of creating digital apps, as part of this Allu Arjun bought rights for Nikhil’s recent outing Arjun Suravaram for 2 crores.
