Superstar Rajinikanth's latest outing Kaala is doing decent business at the box office. Kaala joined the Rs 100 Cr club within three days of its release. However, Rajini's comments on Cauvery dispute badly impacted the film's fortunes particularly in Karnataka where the release was banned by pro kannada activists. Kaala is directed by Pa.Ranjith and produced by Actor Dhanush.
Of late, a movie's pre release business not only includes audio and satellite rights but also selling of the film to online movie streaming channels. In India, Amazon prime video is one such platform for Tollywood movies. Most of the recent releases including Rangasthalam and Bharat Ane Nenu are not available for online watching on Amazon. Now, the latest speculation among the audience is if Kaala too will be available for online watch on Amazon prime vidoes. Also, the talk is on how much money Dhanush will make from selling it to Amazon Prime.
If you remember, summer releases like-Rangasthalam and Bharat Ane Nenu already available on Amazon Prime are grabbing eyeballs. It remains to be seen if Kaala will be sold for a much higher price than Rangasthalam and Bharat Ane Nenu considering that it's a Rajinikanth film.
In Kaala, Rajinikanth is seen playing the king of Dharavi slums in Mumbai, fighting for the rights of people. Kaala is roaring at the overseas box office. This week, new releases like Race 3 and Naa Nuvve are likely to affect box office figures at the ticket window.
On the career front, Rajinikanth will be next seen in Karthik Subbaraj's untitled film which is currently on floors. Watch this space for more
