According to unconfirmed reports doing rounds in media circles, satellite rights of Nandamuri Balakrishna's latest movie “Lion" are sold for an exorbitant price. If reports are true, Gemini TV has bagged the satellite rights at a price of 5.5 crores.
Selling out satellite rights before the release is not a big game for makers because if the film scores hit then they will get more than that. However, it seems like the makers of wait cant wait till release.
However, Gemini TV hasn't confirmed anything about “Lion" satellite rights. We have to wait for official confirmation. Directed by newcomer Satyadeva, the film features Trisha and Radhika Apte in the leads.
