No matter what their current form is, both Powerstar Pawan Kalyan and Superstar Mahesh Babu stand in a whole different league of stars in Telugu Cinema. They haven’t produced great results in the recent past but there happened no harm to thier market and stardom. Both Spyder and Pawan Kalyan – Trivikram films are pooling huge amounts from the pre release business.
Both the films are set to cross 100cr from theatrical rights alone. Add satellite rights to that, the numbers will be surprised you. Spyder has already raked 26-28 cr from Telugu + Hindi (no official confirmation). Telugu satellite can be estimated at 16-18 cr. After the inclusion of Tamil satellite rights, Spyder will manage 35cr at least from the TV market. But Spyder is a multi language release film and PK 25 is not.
As per reports, Gemini TV has bagged the satellite rights of Pawan Kalyan – Trivikram film for an astonishing price of 19.50 cr (no official confirmation). If this is true, Pawan Kalyan outnumbered Mahesh Babu’s record for the Telugu version.
But the game isn’t over yet. Bharath Ane Nenu would break the existing record since Mahesh Babu and Koratala Siva together carry a blockbuster reputation. In this way, our Superstar and Powerstar are exchanging the records.
