Reportedly, the rights of the dubbed Telugu and Kannada versions of superstar Rajinikanth’s much-awaited Enthiran (Robot), directed by Shankar, has been sold. Sources now say that Sun Pictures sold the Kananda version for Rs. 9.75 crores and the Telugu version for a whopping Rs. 33 crores. The details about the buyers are still under wraps.
Meanwhile, talking to the media at the music release of Hindi version of Enthiran at JW Marriot on Saturday, superstar Rajinikanth said that Enthiran is the first Indian film of its type and every aspect of it is comparable to the cult Hindi movie Sholay.
“Around Rs. 160 crore has been invested to make the film. It’s fantastic; technical excellence is there. Sholay made history not because of the money or budget involved, not because it was a multi-starrer, not because of the technicalities, but because of its subject. Like Sholay, in Robot too, there is an excellent storyline, excellent character sketches. It’s science fiction and excellently made,” he said.
