Producer Ramanarayanan of Sri Thenandal Movies had incurred incredulously huge profits with Arundathi and Hollywood movie 2012 in 2009. And this year, he has acquired the rights for the most expected Hollywood film M.Night Shyamalan"s The Last Airbender. Shyamalan has made this film following the grand success of The Happening.
The film, which has fetched mixed reviews in USA, will be hitting screens the in India on July 9. It"s worth mentioning that the flop shows in Hollywood have done remarkable business in India, especially in Tamil Nadu. Say for instance, Van Helsing and 2012 were utter flops in US but fetched good results here.
Apart from this film, Ramanarayanan has acquired the rights for Tamil version of Inception. This film is directed by Christopher Nolan of Mementoes fame (remade in Tamil as Ghajini) and features Leonardo DiCaprio in lead role. A.R. Murugadoss upcoming film 7 Aum Arivu is said to be inspired from Inception.
