The breakup of the amount includes Rs 42 crore for the digital rights while the satellite rights are valued at Rs 20 crore. But do you know this was not what the makers had expected to settle their deal?
Yes, that’s right. An insider opened up about the whopping amount to Times Now and said, “The initial market expectation of Dharma Productions for Govinda Naam Mera was Rs 80 crores, but the buyers were not too keen to spend such a big amount on the film. Finally, the deal was locked at Rs 62 crore.”
The source further added, “It’s a comic entertainer, but not exactly a film that’s ideal for the big screen in today’s world. Hence, the makers decided on a direct-to-digital premiere.”
