mega-budget film Thaandavam seems to be not only making
noise in Tamil but also in Telugu. Well, the distribution rights of
the Tollywood version of AL Vijay directorial film have been
acquired by C Kalyan for a whopping price.
According to a source, “Thaandavam Telugu rights have
fetched around Rs 6 crore for the makers of the film. Producer C
Kalyan, after a few rounds of negotiations, sealed the deal for the
record price.” It can be noted here that Vikram, AL Vijay and
Anushka Shetty's Deiva
Thirumagal (Telugu version is Nanna) rights were sold
for Rs 4 crore in 2011. However, UTV chief, Govind Dhananjayan,
without revealing the exact price, said that the Telugu rights have
been sold for a record price.
Traders say that many factors have come into play in the deal.
“Firstly, Thaandavam is made with the budget of Rs 36
crore, which is one of the costliest movie in the recent times.
Secondly, Vikram has a huge fan following in AP. And, it is a
mass-entertainer, which has been entirely shot in London. Adding to
that it is a big-cast film comprising of Anushka Shetty, Amy Jackson,
Lakshmi Rai and Jagapathi Babu.”
