If a success can turn the tide in your favor, a failure can do the exact opposite too. Harish Shankar has gone thru this ordeal not just once but twice. His first film 'Shock' was a failure and he bounced back with back to back hits in 'Mirapakay' and 'Gabbar Singh'. The success was followed up by the debacle of 'Ramayya Vastavayya' which instantly reduced the market's confidence.
In an interview given recently, he was candid enough to admit that RV's flop made his producers think again and take the advance amounts given to him. He was quick to add that they were right in their own right saying 'If they give me money when I gave a success, they can take it back after I give a failure'
