In a record pre-release business in Gopichand's career, the Sampath Nandi-directorial Gautham Nanda has fetched a staggering Rs 31 Crore. When contacted, sources close to production house have confirmed the same. This is said to be highest in Gopi's career till date. However, it is not theatrical alone. The total pre-release business includes theatrical (domestic & overseas), satellite, music rights et al. Still, this is very big amount for Gopi.
Producers who earlier suffered losses with Prabhas-starrer Rebel are now enjoying table-profit. Meanwhile, distributors who bet big on the film are keeping their fingers crossed. All hopes are on the stylish makeover of Gopi and slick making of Sampath.
And not to forget is the glam factor. Hansika Motwani and Catherine Tresa will be seen romancing Gopi in the film. SS Thaman has composed the music.
