Whether it is a television screening or release in some typical north states, dubbed versions of Telugu films are fetching a lot of attention. For that reason, even a flop film like Nela Ticket has fetched 12 crores for ‘dubbing rights’, which is more than its satellite rights and also box office collections in that case.
Right now the Telugu remake film of Kannada ‘U Turn’ is being widely discussed as the Hindi dubbing rights of this film fetched a bomb. Starring Samantha in the lead, the film got sold for 2.10 crores in the Hindi arena, a price that is not even given to the romantic comedies of some 20+ crore range heroes. And the credit goes to, Samantha, for sure.
With big hits like Rangasthalam, Mahanati and Abhimanyudu in the recent times, Samantha became the talking point of North India as well. As her craze is doubling, now Hindi producers want to pour huge on her movies. That’s how “U Turn” got such phenomenal selling price.
Cut to the film, it’s a supernatural thriller directed by Pawan Kumar who made the original version in Kannada with Shraddha Srinath. Queen bee Samantha plays the role of an investigative journalist inside this film.
