Any film of Mahesh Babu is worth Rs. 50 crores as per current market rates. If the producers sell off the rights of his film they will surely make more than Rs. 50 crore prior to the release. As per current rates, Mahesh Babu’s film gets Rs. 14 crore from Nizam and around 8 Crores from overseas distributors.
He has a very strong market in Ceded (7crore+), Uttarandhra (4crore+), Andhra region and Nellore (12 crore+). He also has strong hold in Karnataka and Tamilnadu regions (5 Crore+). Besides this his films will get more than 10 crores through satellite and other rights. Which means Mahesh Babu’s film is worth Rs 60 crore if the producers are willing to sell off all the rights as per demand.
If the film goes on to conquer the box office then the producers get an additional share of over 10 crores through profits. Now you can calculate for yourself what the producers make if Aagadu goes on to become a blockbuster as expected. There are only a few heroes in Telugu Cinema who are capable enough to do this much business.
