Distributor Subramanyam invested 20 crores in Vikramasimha!
Even though few Telugu distributors are reluctant to take up the film ‘Vikramasimha‘ till but producer Subramanyam who minted huge money in Hollywood dubbed movies, is not worried since superstar and producer Rajnikanth would compensate for losses if any. He is only producer and star to refund the losses incurred by Telugu producers, who invested in ‘Baba‘ and set a new precedent in Tollywood.
Usually, Tollywood distributors who suffer losses in star studded Telugu films, can never reach the particular star or producer to request for refund, but Rajnikanth is a different person.
Surely, Rajnikanth would be arranging big sums prior-to-release of Vikramasimha, since if something goes wrong, he knows that distributors will tap his door and seek refund of losses and Subramanyam would be one of those ‘seekers’ since he has put in more than 20 crores keeping hopes on this 3-animated avatars. Is Rajnikanth is same person or changed over the years, we have to wait and see.
Did Rajnikanth know It already?
What will be the fate of ‘Kochadaiyan‘ alias ‘Vikramasimha‘ at box office? Being a Superstar Rajnikanth movie, it will surely garner huge day one collections and applause. But such kind of cake-walk seems to be little tough this time as distributors are pointing this flick as a ‘cartoon’ movie.
Apart from issues regarding paying pending money to distributors and all, Kochadaiyan is now into another fix as distributors are saying that this flick will not get enough openings.
Also they seem to be disappointed with the cartoon look of the flick. Without looking into all these release issues, why did Rajnikanth moved to the shoot of his next flick? – Lingaa – directed by KS Ravikumar.
Already Lingaa has wrapped its first schedule and in a day or two the unit will be moving to Ramoji Film City to kick start second schedule.
Did Rajnikanth know that Kochadaiyan is not going work? Maybe that is why he is finishing Lingaa much faster such that his fans will get some ‘entertainment’ soon after Kochadaiyan comes and leaves theatres, say trade experts. For the first time after years, Superstar is facing release troubles and then the feeling of delivering an average movie.
