Superstar Mahesh Babu's Aagadu and actress Anushka Shetty's Rudhramadevi are among the most-awaited Telugu movies of 2014. These films have been creating positive buzz in the media ever since they were announced. So there has been great demand for theatrical distribution rights of these movies. The latest buzz in the T-Town is that producer Dil Raju has acquired rights of both films for a whopping price.
Dil Raju is known for producing big ticket movies like
Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, Ramayya
Vasthavayya and Yevadu. Besides movie production, he
has also been into distribution for several years and he has
released many big budget movies especially in Nizam region. Now, he
has bought the theatrical rights of Aagadu for the Uttarandhra area
for a record price of Rs 5 crores.
Meanwhile, it is rumoured that the deal of
Rudhramadevi, which has been directed and produced by
Gunasekhar, was done much before Aagadu and producer Dil Raju has
acquired the rights of the films for a whopping price. But the

of this period drama.
Both Aagadu and Rudramadevi are mega-budget movies, which are helmed by ace directors like Srinu Vaitla and Gunasekhar respectively.

It should be seen whether they will be able to impress the viewers or not.
