The latest trade reports regarding master technician, Shankar’s upcoming sci-fi thriller, Robo 2.0 is surprising many cine followers. Apparently, the producers, Lyca productions are quoting sky-high prices for the Telugu theatrical rights but no one is showing interesting in acquiring the rights for the movie.
The fact that Rajini’s previous 2 movies are duds at the box office seems to be playing the spoiler part here. Especially, Kaala failed to recover even 25% of its total investment and pushed the distributors into deep troubles.
The big question here is, will the producers go the extra mile and self-release the movie in Andhra Pradesh? Or, will some renowned production take a risky shot and spend 85-90 crores on the theatrical rights? We will know the answer soon.
