Ram Charan wrapped shooting in Azerbaijan and spent for a while in Georgia and came to back to India to look after other works. He’s busy wrapping his next that is being directed by Boyapati Sreenu. Here is an interesting snippet about the film’s overseas business.
We hear that this Charan-Boyapati film, #RC12, got sold for 9 crores in the overseas territory. An NRI who want to enter into film business has bought the rights of the film at such mammoth price. But such a hefty investment will only force him to sell the film at a heavy rate, which will not work out trade wise.
Though Rangasthalam has made 13.9+ Crores share (23.2 Cr share), his previous film Dhruva made only 5.5 crores share (10 Cr Gross) from USA, UK and other overseas territories. And now,#RC12 needs to collect close to 3 million dollars if it has to recollect the investment poured by the distributors. That puts trade circles into a confusion now.
As Boyapati Sreenu and Ram Charan don’t have a proven market in Overseas territories for their ‘mass’ films, collecting 3 million will be a daunting task. Has the producer sold the film at a lesser price, then the situation would have been different. But with Rangasthalam sold for 9 crores, seems like he asked for the same price for #RC12 too!!
