Vikram's much-awaited film 'Inkokkadu', the Telugu version of Tamil thriller Iru Mugan, has got a record sum for the Telugu theatrical.
According to latest reports, the Telugu rights have been acquired by Neelam Krishna Reddy of NKR films for a price of Rs. 11 crore. For Vikram who has not scored a single hit in the Telugu states, this is the highest price ever paid in the two Telugu states for the actor.
Vikram's last outing with maverick director Shankar got a good opening and did business of close to Rs 30 crore in the Telugu states alone.
Trade sources believe that the expectations among the audience are higher post the release of the trailer, which has also increased the filmâ€™s box office potential. The actor's dual role - transgender avatar and that of a RAW officer Akhilan â€“ are seen as drivers, which could fetch footfalls in huge numbers.
Nayanthara and Nithya Menen will be romancing Vikram in this film, which is being directed by Anand Shankar. The movie is most likely looking at a September release.
