Sai Dharam Tej’s Brother, Panja Vaishnav Tej’s Debut film, Uppena managed to garner the attention of the people with the famous ‘Nee Kannu Neeli Samudram’ song. The movie was supposed to release for Summer but Coronavirus Pandemic postponed the film indefinitely.
Sources say that Zee5 came up with an offer of 12 Crore for the film to skip its theatrical window and release directly online. This is a good offer for a newcomer but the makers refused it because the movie costed them a whopping 30 Crore.
Even if fetches decent deals for Hindi dubbing and satellite rights, the movie would still end up as a loss venture. So, Mythri Movie Makers are waiting for the theaters to re-open so that they can release the film in theaters. But then, more delay means more increase in the budget. So, it is a catch 22 situation for them.Follow @THEPANIPURI
