Akkineni Akhil is creating sensation among the film business circles even before his first film hit the screens.
His debut film directed by VV Vinayak has turned so hot in the trade that buyers are shelling big bucks to bag the rights.
As per trade sources Akhil’s debut film distribution rights for Nizam and Karnataka were sold for Srinivas (Devi Films) for an astronomical price.
The said buyer acquired the rights of Akhil, Vinayak’s film for 18 crore (14 crore Nizam + 4 Crore Karnataka). This is huge for a debut hero as superstars like Mahesh and Pawan Kalyan movies have such demand in Nizam territory.
Despite this being produced by Nithin, his distribution company is not releasing it in Nizam as they got this resounding offer.
Total theatrical business of this film is estimated to be around 40 to 42 crore, which is humongous for a debut hero.
Akhil should score a blockbuster to take buyers to the safe zone. Nithin has spent so much money on the film as he believed that Akhil has the potential.
So Nithin’s confidence in Akhil and Vinayak has been paying off rich dividends.
