Mohanlal Pocketed Crores With NTR’s Janatha Garage
Mohanlal reportedly shocked the makers of NTR’s Janatha Garage, by pocketing crores with his brilliant marketing tactics. Apparently, the Malayalam superstar demanded 1.5 Crores remuneration to act in the film, along with the rights of the Malayalam version, to which Mythri Movie Makers readily agreed. But, it was a major blow to them, when they got to know that the actor sold the Malayalam rights for a whopping price of 4.5 Crores, using his brand name and the goodwill of the other cast and crew, in the state. Looks like the producers miscalculated the market of Mohanlal and are regretting it now, for leaving a huge business area all to the actor’s sack.
In fact, NTR was keen on the Malayalam market right from the beginning, because of which the director has also cast Nithya Menen, who is one of the top league actresses of Malayalam industry, and Unni Mukundan and a few other familiar faces. Though NTR and the Mythri Movie Makers concentrated on exploring the different markets and expanding the reach of their film, they did not do their research right, which has in turn benefited Mohanlal. Now that was an amazing move by the Superstar. Experience does it all.
