Varun Tej’s space thriller Anthariksham is gearing up for release on December 21st. The Sankalp Reddy directional is going to face stiff competition at box office from Sharwanand’s Padi Padi Leche Manasu and Kannada film KGF which are releasing on the same day. Both these films are carrying good buzz among audience and trade circles.
In an unexpected setback for Anthariksham producers, Andhra area distributor Beanz Arjun( Vizag) who came forward to snap the rights for 8 Crores has backed out in the last minute. Heavy competition from other releases is said to be the reason why the distributor pulled out just a few days before its release.
Producers of Anthariksham believed that they are in safe zone with table profits as Andhra area rights were sold for a good price. But, the last minute setback has come as a shocker to the production house. They are now releasing the film on their own in Andhra region.
First Frame Entertainments banner is behind this space thriller.
