The buzz is that Sun TV has procured the television rights of Naan Ee for astounding Rs 3.35 crore and also the distribution rights have sold for Rs 5 crore. Sharing his excitement, SS Rajamouli tweeted, “When Eega Tamil rights were sold for 5 crores, I was a bit worried that we are overselling. Tamil satellite rights were sold for a whooping 3.35 crores!! We are left wondering whether we undersold the rights.”
