Anushka’s upcoming crime thriller Bhagmathi Tamil version rights were bagged for a whopping Rs. 10 crore. This includes a section of Tamil overseas (Singapore and Malaysia) distribution rights too. It is a huge amount for a lady oriented film.
For example Nayanthara’s female oriented Tamil films are usually sold for around Rs. 1.5 crore to Rs.2 crore in Telugu.
The craze for Bhagmathi proves that Anushka is the biggest female superstar in South cinema at the moment.
Bhagmathi Telugu version business would be around Rs. 30 crore according to trade circles.
It will also release in Malayalam along with Telugu and Tamil. Post Baahubali, Anushka’s stardom has reached a whole new level and UV Creations is making the most of it.
Bhagmathi has been under production for a longtime and the makers are pretty confident about the outcome.
It is releasing during Republic Day weekend without clashing with the Sankranthi biggies. It will have simultaneous release in Telugu and Tamil.
