Shiva Rajkumar Effect On Gautamiputra
As we all know, Kannada superstar Shiva Rajkumar will be playing an important role of a Satrap (Samantha Raju) in Nandamuri Balakrishna’s milestone film Gautamiputra Satakarni. Soon after the news of the superstar being part of the film has come out, huge business offers have come for Karnataka state rights.
Sri Gokul Films bid high to others, has bought GPSK Karnataka rights by shelling out Rs 3.85 crores, which is highest for Balakrishna. Though Nandamuri family has good market value in Karnataka, Shiva Rajkumar is definitely key factor for the distributor to spending such big amount.
Chances are very good for wide release of GPSK in Karnataka despite many movies releasing Sankranti week, since Sri Gokul Films is one of the top distribution houses in the state.
Shiva Rajkumar will join GPSK unit in next shooting schedule. This will be his maiden film in Telugu and his presence will boost the film chances in Karnataka. On the other hand, Shiva Rajkumar is happy to associate with the historical film.
GPSK business has been closed for all areas and the film has made nearly Rs 55 cr pre-release theatrical business.
