Rajinikanth has a huge craze all over India, especially in the Telugu states. But, the situation has changed now. He has not been in great form and his next film Annaatthe is not carrying any buzz in the Telugu states. The makers expected above Rs. 15 Cr for the movie’s theatrical rights in the Telugu states and denied many offers. But, due to the current situation in Andhra Pradesh and the market of Telugu movies, the makers have now accepted an offer of Rs. 12 Cr. The film has to collect a share of Rs. 12.5 Cr or more to become a box office hit. Annaatthe Telugu version is expected to have a simultaneous release with the Tamil version and it will release for Diwali.
