It’s a statistical fact that Mahesh Babu is unarguably the king of Overseas Boxoffice, when it comes to Telugu Cinema. Barring the recent Kabali, the Telugu Superstar has always been the top South star in USA market, which is most lucrative for Tollywood.
Director Koratala Siva is reportedly trying to cash Mahesh Babu’s superstardom in Overseas market. Going by the reports in media, the star filmmaker would be taking the overseas rights of his film with Mahesh Babu, instead of charging any remuneration from producer DVV Danayya. If this happens, Koratala has stroke bulky deal as Mahesh 24 would fetch not less than 15-16 cr from the theatrical rights in overseas.
That’s some deal now. This would help in reducing production cost as well. Anyhow, Mahesh Babu would charge anywhere between 22-25 cr and adding Koratala’s remuneration to that would have increased the budget of the film.
