The distribution rights of the U.S. and Andhra Pradesh have been acquired by Cine Galaxy and Dil Raju, respectively.
The industry is now curiously looking forward to see whether the pre-release business of “Theri” will be higher than Vijay’s previous film “Puli,” which had made over Rs 100 crore before its theatrical release.
Coming back to “Theri,” industry insiders hope that the pre-release business of “Theri” would come closer to “Puli” if not fails to beat the record of Vijay’s previous movie.
However, Ilayathalapathy’s new flick is not releasing in Hindi and this is a big disadvantage for the movie. The rights of key centres should fetch a higher price in order to surpass the pre-release collection of “Puli,” opine industry insiders.
