Malayalam superstar Mohanlal’s latest dubbed film ‘Manyam Puli’ has surprised trade pundits and emerged a super hit in the Telugu states.
The Telugu buyers reportedly invested Rs 1 Cr on the film and the action adventure has already amassed about Rs 2.50 Cr share in AP and Telangana.
If the satellite rights too are added, the Telugu buyers will earn over Rs 2 crore profit on this venture.
‘Puli Murugan’ was a hit in Kerala but initially the Telugu industry was apprehensive about it because Mohanlal’s ‘Manamantha’ flopped despite good reviews.
Mohanlal nor the makers tried hard to promote Manyam Puli in the Telugu states sparking a negative buzz for the film. Demonetization was also expected to affect its success.
Despite all these, the film became super hit at box office, proving once again that Telugu audiences encourage content-rich films irrespective of the language.
After the success of Manyam Puli, Mohanlal is reportedly planning to extensively promote his next dubbed film ‘Kanupapa’ in the Telugu states.
It will hit screens on December 30. – CINEWS
