Distributors rush for Kabali rights

Several popular telugu distributors are vying for the rights of the upcoming Rajinikanth starrer.

Despite two big films — Sardar Gabbar Singh and Brahmotsavam — not doing as well at the box-office as expected, Telugu distributors are falling over each other to bag the rights for Kabali.

The Rajnikanth starrer will release in the first week of July and Telugu film distributors are ready with their cheque-books. Popular distributors like Abhishek Pictures, Dil Raju, Suresh Babu and Sunil Narang are all in consultation with the Tamil producer for the rights.

“At present the Tamil producer is quoting nearly Rs 32 crore, with satellite rights, for the Telugu distribution,” says a source.

Rajnikanth has a huge following among Telugu audiences and the recently released promotional video of the film has gone viral on social media.

Meanwhile, there is a complaint with the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce regarding Rajni’s earlier film, stating that whoever buys the rights of Kabali should compensate the loss of the distributor who had bought the earlier film.
