After last year’s super-duper hit Kanchana, actor-director Raghava Lawrence is back with his next release in Telugu with Rebel which released all over Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and across the world. The film, which has hottie Tamannaah pairing up opposite young gun Prabhas, has already created huge expectations amid the fans of both the stars.
The film is said to have been sold for a whopping Rs.40 crores vis-à-vis its theatrical release in many zones in the State. The audio of the film, which was released some time back, has reported record sale of audio cassettes and CDs. Industry watchers predict that the film might go on to become a super-duper hit but are reserving their final verdict till know how the ‘opening’ is.
Despite the Regional Censor Board awarding the film an ‘A’ certificate, advance booking was brisk and tickets for the first seven days had already been completely sold in many halls in Hyderabad and elsewhere. Sources close to Lawrence say that typical of his earlier commercial ventures, Rebel would also be a comedy-based action flick which would appeal to all sections of the audiences.
Lawrence also makes his debut as music director with this film. Lawrence needs a box-office hit in Tollywood to further strengthen his standing in Tollywood after the super-success of Kanchana. The next few days would be crucial for both Lawrence and Tamannaah, as the milky beauty needs more hit films to make it to the ‘No.1’ spot.
