Exclusive – Is Kaappaan Suriya’s ever lowest pre-business scorer in Tamil Nadu?
Suriya’s Kaappaan is all set for worldwide release on September 20 simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu titled ‘Bandobast’. While, there is a good expectation mounting up for the movie, it is said that the movie has recorded a very low sales of Tamil Nadu theatrical rights. If what we hear from the closest sources is believed to be true, Madurai Anbu of Gopuram Films has reportedly acquired the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights for somewhere around Rs. 20Cr approximately.
The other sources mention that it is mainly due to the abrupt failure of Suriya’s previous movie ‘NGK’, which was sold for a higher price and didn’t perform well in TN. On the other hand, it is said that this is a smart move by Lyca Productions as they want to sell the movie at a lesser price and gain good profits.
Directed by KV Anand, this espionage thriller features Suriya, Arya, Sayyeshaa, Mohanlal and Boman Hirani in lead roles.
