Superstar Mahesh Babu is placing himself right next to Baahubali in every aspect. The star holds the biggest Non-Baahubali grosser in the form of Srimanthudu. The pre release business of Mahesh 23 is also going on next to Baahubali and the biggest for Telugu, if we exclude Baahubali.
Now, the satellite rights of Mahesh Babu – AR Murugadoss film have been sold for an unbelievable price considering the satellite market in South Cinema. While no other Telugu biggie (excluding Baahubali) has even sold for 15cr at least, the bilingual flick of Superstar has been sold to Zee group for a huge amount which is miles far.
According to reports coming from Tamil Media circles, Zee has paid 26.50 cr for Mahesh 23 satellite rights. This deal also includes the rights to telecast the film in Hindi. However, Tamil satellite rights are yet to be sold. After including Tamil TV rights, the whole satellite deal will be around 30-35cr, which is next to Baahubali in entire south. This is huge, very huge.
