Salaar distributors faced losses?

At the Indian box office, Salaar made gross collections of 480.26 crores. A report by claims the action flick did not cover its high costs for distributors in Andhra Pradesh. Mythri Movie Makers brought the rights for the Nizam area. While the company did earn profits, some individual distributors in the area incurred losses since they brought the rights at staggering prices.

Upon learning about the same, Salaar producer Vijay Kirgandur contacted the individual distributors and compensated them. Despite no demand for money, the production team called them personally and took care of their losses.
