The shooting of Thalapathy 63 is being done at a really fast clip in and around Chennai, in grand sets that have been put up by the team. The film is gearing up for its grand theatrical release later this year for Diwali. The producers of this Altee - Vijay film, AGS Entertainment have already locked the overseas theatrical rights for a whopping sum of about 30 crores. The Hindi dubbing rights have also been sealed. The process for the Telugu dubbed version’s theatrical rights has also been initiated. This being the case, the Kollywood trade is abuzz that Screen Scene is in the running to grab the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of the film for a whopping price.
Both Mersal and Sarkar did a Tamil Nadu theatrical share of more than 70 crores each, and the Tamil Nadu rights of Thalapathy 63 will definitely be far higher than the share of Mersal and Sarkar. We’ll know the exact rate for sure, once this deal is officially confirmed by the team. The title and first look of Thalapathy 63 are expected to be launched as a Vijay birthday special on June 22nd or the evening of June 21st. Mersal and Sarkar were also similarly unveiled like this, in 2017 and 2018.
Screen Scene has been on a roll this year with hits such as Thadam and Natpe Thunai. Recently they also released Ayogya. If they seal the rights of Thalapathy 63, as is being rumored, it will most certainly be their biggest buy yet.
