Prabhas to fall behind Charan?
The makers of much-awaited ‘Sahoo’ are reportedly demanding Rs 20 crore for Hindi satellite rights and expected to close the deal to very soon. “Despite Prabhas becoming a pan-India star, the Hindi channels are reluctant to cough up more money,” says a Hindi film distributor and adds “It doesn’t include Hindi theatrical release which would be traded off later since the spy thriller is being made in three languages- Telugu-Tamil and Hindi.
Hence, it’s theatrical rights could fetch a bomb for producers. B-town star Shraddha Kapoor is playing the female lead, while Neil Nitin Mukesh is playing the dreaded baddy along with few more multilingual stars,” he adds. Nonetheless, Ram Charan Tej holds the record for bagging highest rate for Hindi dubbing rights of Rs 22 crore for his last release ‘Vineya Vidheya Rama,’ while superstar Mahesh Babu’s much-awaited campus story ‘Maharshi’ was sold for Rs 20 crore.
