Mahesh Babu, one of the biggest names in the Telugu film industry, is gearing up for the release of the much-hyped Sarileru Neekevvaru, directed by F2 fame Anil Ravipudi. The film has created a fair deal of buzz among Prince fans and this suggests that things are heading the right direction. Now, here is some surprising news about Sarileru Neekevvaru. According to reports, the film's Hindi rights have fetched Rs 15.25 crore, which many feel is an impressive amount. Sarileru Neekevvaru has, however, not been able to set a record on this front, which might be a cause of worry.
No Match For Ram Charan
Sarileru Neekevvaru has proved to be no match for Vinaya Vidheya Rama as the Ram Charan starrer's Hindi rights were sold for Rs 22 crore.
Mahesh Babu Fails To Beat Himself
Sarileru Neekevvaru has also failed to beat Mahesh Babu's last release Maharshi, which raked in Rs 20 crore through its Hindi rights. It has, however, fared better than Jr NTR's Aravinda Sametha (Rs 18 crore) and Bharat Ane Nenu (Rs 12 crore).
Mahesh Babu is a fairly popular name 'up North' and Hindi-dubbed versions of films such as Bharat Ane Nenu (Dashing CM Bharat) and Pokiri ( Tapori Wanted) enjoy a decent fan following. As such, many feel that Sarileru Neekevvar's Hindi rights could have fetched more.
