After the thumping responses for Rajinikanth's Kabali teaser, distributors are queuing up at the Tamil producer's office, to bag the Telugu rights of the movie. Needless to say, Superstar Rajinikanth has impeccable fan base in the Telugu land, among the Tamil actors.
It is learnt that popular distributors like Abhishek Pictures, Dil Raju, Suresh Babu and Sunil Narang are all in talks with the Tamil producer for the rights.
"At present the Tamil producer is quoting nearly Rs 32 Crores, with satellite rights, for the Telugu distribution," said a source, quoted by a leading daily.
However, there is a complaint in the Telugu Film Chamber Of Commerce, which is making stopping them from finalizing the deal. It was stated in the complaint that, whoever is ready to buy Kabali rights, must also agree to repay the losses incurred by Linga Telugu version.
Even if a film works magically well at the box-office, it is a difficult task for it to spin the money of two films. Hence distributors are apparently in a dilemma, not knowing how to solve the issue.
