Silambarasan is back to Chennai and how! The actor’s high voltage gangster flick ‘Vettai Mannan’ is garnering great expectations and the latest is that the film’s satellite rights have been snapped for a record price of 6 whooping crores!
Although it hasn’t been confirmed of which television channel has bagged the rights, sources in the industry express that the Sun TV has bagged this film’s satellite rights for 6 crore rupees.
This is the highest ever for a STR starrer, beating his earlier record of Rs 5 crore for ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya’ and Rs 5.5 crore for ‘Osthi’. This means there’s a rapid increase in the satellite rights of STR’s films meaning he’s now considered a bankable star by TV channels and there’s a bigger small screen market for him.
STR has been running from pillar to post for the recording of his pet project, a music album titled ‘Love Anthem For World Peace and after two months of work in it he’s back to Chennai and immediately started work on ‘Vettai Mannan’ and some comic sequences featuring him and VTV Ganesh have been canned. Scenes featuring him and Hansika will be shot today.
The movie is directed by debutant Nelson and has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja who has delivered several hits with Simbu aka STR in the past.
