That’s how our producers count the market figures, rather than relying on the type of content they are coming up with. Here comes a tale of demand from leading producer Dil Raju who wants to make most out of his upcoming film “Maharshi”, featuring Mahesh Babu in the lead.
In the recent times, the moment you turn to any leading Hindi entertainment channel, you will end up watching dubbed Telugu movies. As the market for Telugu dubbed versions are very high now, our makers are also demanding huge sums. Perhaps, that’s why an upcoming film of Ram Charan that has Boyapati Seenu directing it, has fetched 22 crores from Hindi satellite sales.
Taking this into consideration, Dil Raju is now said to be demanding 25 crores from the Hindi circuits to shell out the rights of Maharshi. However, as Charan-Boyapati film is an out and out mass masala movie, Hindi channel paid such high price. Because for any film to be sold, 3-4 fights are a must.
And with talk everywhere that Mahesh will be seen as a software engineer in the USA with college backdrop flashback, it looks like the movie will be low on action elements. For that reason, Maharshi may not fetch a high price, which Dil Raju refuses to believe. We have to see if class-looking Mahesh from Maharshi will really bring home 25 crores.
