Surya's fan following is increasing with his every film. Especially
in Kerala, the actor has become very popular in the last few years,
as his movies like Ayan, Ghajini, Vaaranam Aayiram have
done good business in the God's own country. As a result, the
theatrical rights of his forthcoming film 7aam Arivu have
been sold for a record price.
Sources close to the production have claimed that the makers of
the film have sealed the deal recently. They have sold the
theatrical rights of 7aam Arivu to Divya Pictures for
whopping Rs 2.50 crores. It is the highest ever paid price for
Surya's film. The Tamil movie will hit the screens in 100 theatres
in Kerala alone.
Earlier, Surya's Singham was sold for Rs 75 lakhs and
the movie went on to collect close to Rs 2 crores. Considering
this, the makers of 7aam Arivu hiked the price this time,
as Surya's movies have been doing well in Kerala.
7aam Arivu directed by AR Murugadoss is produced by
Udhayanidhi Stalin. The movie stars Surya, Shruti Hassan and
Hollywood actor Johnny Tri Nguyen.
