The ups and downs in the overseas market for Telugu films has put the buyers in dilemma . After super hit films like Prabhas’s ‘Baahubali’, Mahesh Babu’s ‘Srimanthudu’ and Nani’s ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoy’. The overseas markets have witnessed disasters in form of Ramcharan’s ‘Bruce Lee The Fighter’, Akkineni Akhil ‘s “Akhil The power of Jua” and other films .
Risk arise when the stakes is High. On one side, Big film producers are demanding high prices showing the previous hit film collections of the Top stars while on other side, the overseas buyers want some other formula to come to a reasonable deal like the average of last three films of the stars.
The makers of Pawan Kalyan’s ” Sardaar Gabbar singh”, Mahesh Babu’s ‘Brahmotsavam’ and Allu Arjun’s ‘Sarainodu’ are reportedly quoting prices like 14 Cr, 13 Cr and 7 Cr respectively as the previous movies of the stars have fetched $ 2.5 M, $ 2.87M and $ 1.4 M respectively.
It means that Pawan Klayan and Mahesh Bbau films have to earn atleast 2.5 Miillion USD for breakeven . Althiouhjh Rajamoli has proved that 2.5 Million USD is not a big deal with his Baabubali. Unleass these upcomig films of Pawan and Mahesh create such huge caraze like Baabubali amaong NRI community, the breakeven figure will be a tough task to cross.
