He continued, “So when our producer heard of Ram Mandir being made, irrespective of whether the film will be a big hit and make money or not, he decided to donate five rupees out of every ticket being sold for the film to the Ram Mandir. He told this to Chiru sir (Chiranjeevi), who announced it on stage. So, from the first day collection itself, we have donated around Rs 14 lakh to the temple. And touch wood, the way the film is picking up, it might be a couple of crores that we donate to Ram Mandir.”
