Rajini overtakes Chiru
Chiranjeevi has been enjoying the highest paid star status in South India until Chandramukhi was released. Now with Chandramukhi, Tamil Superstar Rajinikanth has become the highest paid star, as he is all set to get Rs 15 Crores for this film. Rajini for a long time had not been doing films for outside banners and was content doing it for his in-house banner. Now, according to the reliable sources, his agreement with Sivaji Films is that he will get 50 percent of the gross sale receipts of the film in Tamil and Telugu, which is to the tune of Rs 30 crores.
Chandramukhi is a big hit in the International market. The theatres screening the film in Malaysia, UAE and USA are running to full houses. This is unprecedented, says the trade since usually the theatre collections drop off in the second week. The previous record of a film which had good business in the International market was Chiranjeeviís Tagore but that too dropped off in the second week.
According to distributors, the collections in Tamilnadu would touch Rs 20 crores. In Andhra Pradesh the distributorsí share is around Rs 7 crores and in Karnataka the share is Rs 3 crores despite it being the remake of the Kannada film Aapthamithra. In Kerala the distributorsí share is expected to be Rs 1 crore.
