‘Aarambam’, featuring Tamil superstar Ajith in the central role, has taken a colossal opening across Tamil Nadu on day one. Like with big-budgeted Tamil flicks that have noted faces, the action-entertainer, directed by Vishnu Vardhan (‘Panjaa’ fame), too, has attracted a huge price when it comes to Telugu dubbing rights. Producer Srinu Babu who is awaiting the release of his maiden production ‘Chandi’ has bagged the Telugu rights amidst a huge competition.
When Hans Talkies contacted the producer, he said that film’s storyline is the reason that made him shell out big bucks for the dubbing rights. “Besides the title catching my attention, I was told that it’s a new ‘Bharateeyudu’.”
He also said that Ajith commands a good following in Telugu and that his production house will take every step to present a superior product. “Following the completion of dubbing, which will start soon, the audio, will be unveiled,” he said.
‘We will release ‘Chandi’ on November 8 before shifting our attention completely to ‘Aarambam’,” he added. ‘Aarambam’ is a production of A Raghuram, brother of Sri Surya Movies head honcho AM Ratnam.
