Drishyam, as we all know, was the most successful movie for the year 2013. Owing to its excellent script and unseen mannerisms from the legendary actor Mohanlal, the movie is still in news. Now, the latest news is that Drishyam has been sold to Asianet, Malayalam's leading Television channel for a whooping amount of Rs 6.5 crores!
Now, with this, Drishyam bags the record of having
acquired the ever biggest satellite amount in Mollywood. Earlier,
the remake rights of the movie was sold for Rs 1.55 crores. The
total budget of the movie was Rs 3.5 crores. The movie has now
received double the amount from its satellite rights.
Mohanlal's own banner Aashirwaad Cinemas produced Drishyam. The
theatre collection for the movie has not been received yet, but
reports claim that the movie has received almost Rs 15 crores
collection till date.
Drishyam is still running successfully with houseful
shows in all the released theaters. It was earlier released in 80
theaters and in the third week after the release it is running in
90 theaters. This shows the success of the movie.
It is to be noted that Dileep starred movie Ezhu Sundara Rathrikal was assured to be paid Rs 30 crores as satellite rights, if the movie ran for 50 days at least in 10 theaters. Unfortunately, the movie bagged only Rs 5.30 crores.
