Mahesh – Vamshi Paidipally film : A risky bet in overseas

1

Superstar Mahesh Babu’s last film Bharat Ane Nenu emerged as one of the biggest grossers in overseas. The film collected close to $ 3.5 M, but only resulted in meagre profits for its buyers as the theatricals were sold for relatively higher prices due to the heady and successful combination of Mahesh and Koratala. Now, the stakes on Mahesh’s 25th film Maharshi are also quite high.

Reportedly, the makers of Maharshi are getting fancy offers in the range of 16 Crores for overseas rights. Discussions are currently on between the producers and buyers and the deal might be closed very soon. Trade analysts opine that it is going to be a risky bet for trade circles as the film needs to emerge as a solid hit in overseas to be a profitable venture for its buyers. They are cautioning that Bharat Ane Nenu managed just to break even though it collected a terrific gross of $ 3.5 M in overseas.

So, Maharshi needs to perform exceptionally well if all its buyers need to be in safe zone. As the film is releasing in Summer, the expectations are very high. It will be another test for Mahesh Babu’s stamina in overseas.
