‘Kaavalan’ is the forthcoming movie of Vijay which has a lot of things at stake. It is the 51st film of Vijay. After a fairly long poor run at the box office Vijay is pinning high hope on this film.
While the movie is gearing up for release on December 24 , Christmas eve, the production team seems to be gearing up for selling the rights of the movie.
Tantra films, an overseas distributor has snapped up Vijay-Asin starrer Kaavalan at a record price, Rs 6 crore to be released outside India. It’s also learnt that the Kerala rights of Kaavalan has been sold at 1.5 crore to Thameens Films.
There’s also a buzz in Kollywood saying Sun Pictures had been trying to grab the distribution and release rights of ‘Kaavalan’. Still to forget the ‘bitter’ experience when Sun Pictures released his ‘Vettaikaran’ and Sura, Vijay was reportedly against selling the rights to Sun Pictures.
Kaavalan is a remake of the Malayalam hit Bodyguard, directed by Siddique. In the original version the lead characters were played by Dileep, Nayantara, Mithra Kurian and Thiyagarajan.
