The Malayalam superstar's blockbuster film will be shown in Telugu with in a couple of weeks from now. Big B, which is slated to clock a hundred days in Kerala, is being dubbed into Telugu.
It is said that the dubbing rights of Big B was sold out for a record price, unheard of in the history of Malayalam cinema. This is due to Mammootty's popularity in Teluguland where his earlier film Saamrajyam became a 100 day hit. The promoters are looking for a repeat with the Big B.
Some of the producers are already in touch with the concerned authorities for getting the dubbing rights of the actor's forthcoming film Nasrani as well!
