SS Rajamouli did the unthinkable with his Baahubali series. The historic drama Baahubali turned out to be a huge hit not just in India but also internationally. Currently Rajamouli is busy in his upcoming magnum opus RRR, which boasts an ensemble cast including Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Shriya Saran, Olivia Morris, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. Since SSRajamouli has cemented his place across the country with Baahubali series, the makers are confident of selling RRR for a record price. But RRR helmer SS Rajamouli failed to break his own record which he created with Baahubali in the term of pre release business.
According to the latest update, the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of RRR were sold for Rs 42 Cr to Lyca Productions. The production house Lyca is known for producing and distributing big Tamil movies like Vada Chennai, Darbar, 2.0 and other big budget entertainers. Talking about its distribution amount, SS Rajamouli’ magnum opus RRR failed to beat Baahubali: The Conclusion, which was sold at Rs 47 Cr in Tamil Nadu.
RRR, which is a big budget film, is being bankrolled by DVV Danayya, is a fictitious tale based on two Telugu freedom fighters – Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem.
