Most of the Kannada film directors and producers want to have a piece of Powerstar Puneet Rajkumar. The reason behind this that the Sandalwood King's movies hardly fail at the Box Office. Now, his latest movie Jackie with director Suri is ready for release and the business lobby has already offered unheard prices for the film. It is said that the distribution rights of the movie have been sold for more than Rs 8 crores.
The sources in Gandhinagar Galli say that a big distributor had offered Rs. 8 crores for obtaining the distribution rights in three areas like Bangalore, Shimoga and North Karnataka. Meanwhile, Rockline Venkatesh was also said to have offered Rs. 2 crores for the Northern Karnataka distribution area and Rs. 55 lacs for Shimoga.
But Raghavendra Rajkumar has an uncanny business sense to get the best out of his much-awaited film. He is said to have sold out the distribution rights to the big distributor, who offered Rs. 8 crores. This is the first time that a Kannada film has been offered such a big prize for the outright distribution of the film.
Meanwhile, the music of Jackie is selling like a hot cake in the market. Sources claim that the music rights and satellite rights of the film have also been sold at a record price. So it is said that even before the release of the movie, the producer has earned more than what he invested on the movie.
With this, the film Jackie has beaten the sales records of Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Bachchan starrer Tamil movie Endhiran in Karnataka. The distribution rights of Endhiran in Karnataka have been sold for a whopping amount of 9.75 crores.
