Sye Raa satellite deal yet to be closed

While a section of media has written that Sun Network bagged the satellite rights of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s epic drama ‘Sye Raa’, truth is that the deal is still open. No TV network has sealed the deal yet. Price is the reason for this deadlock.

Producer Ram Charan is demanding Rs 29 Cr for the South bouquet (Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada) but Sun network and Star group are negotiating for Rs 23 to Rs 24 Cr. Except for the Telugu, other versions won’t fetch much to the group. Hence, the channels are not interested to give such a huge amount. However, Ram Charan says this will be another ‘Baahubali’ that will connect with the audiences of all languages. 

The film’s streaming rights for all languages (Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi) were already bagged by Amazon Prime for a whopping Rs 50 Cr. 

‘Sye Raa’ is produced by Ram Charan and directed by Surender Reddy. The film is releasing on October 2nd, 2019 worldwide in all five languages simultaneously.

This is megastar Chiranjeevi’s dream project. The film is made with whopping Rs 225 Cr and has an ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Tamannah Bhatia, Sudeep, and Vijay Sethupathi.
