Studio Green holds quite a reputation for distributing super hit blockbusters from the bro-duo of Karthi and Suriya, exclusively. Now things have turned twisty with the production banner’s sudden acquisition of the rights to Thala Ajith’s big budget offering Mankatha, which was resting with the Cloud Nine Banner till date. Studio Green’s Gnanavel Raja now owns the television rights of the film along with the responsibility of releasing the movie across theatres in India. ‘Mankatha theatrical and other rights have been purchased by Studio Green. The film is getting censored today (Aug 23rd) and we are trying our best to release it on Aug 31 worldwide’, announced an elated Raja. All financial papers have been cleared after Gnanavel reportedly paid a record sum to the Cloud Nine people for acquiring the flick.
Ayngaran International will take care of the overseas market as reported earlier. The flick Mankatha has been slated for an August 31st release i.e. a Wednesday. In fact the date has been fixed keeping in mind the festive holiday season with families expected to head to nearby halls making full use of their Vinayaka Chaturthi and Ramzan holidays. The Mankatha album by Yuvan Shankar Raja and the stylish trailer have been a huge hit and generated enough hype already among fans, giving Mr. Gnanavel every reason to flash his smile.
Now that’s a gamble, Kandippa! oru Mankatha gamble .
