Ranam satellite rights goes for a huge price!
Prithviraj, who returned back to winning ways with Koode, is currently awaiting the release of Ranam. The movie directed by Nirmal Sahadev has been slated for release on September 6. Also starring Rahman and Isha Talwar in major roles, Ranam is touted to be an action-thriller. Expectations are high for the movie among the cinephiles thanks to its highly impressive teasers and posters.
Staying true to the hype, the movie’s satellite rights have been acquired by Asianet TV for 4.20 crores. The channel also acquired the rights for Prithviraj’s recently released romantic flick, My Story. However, its exact rights amount has not yet been disclosed.
Nirmal Sahadev, a former associate of the ace Shyamaprasad, is making his directorial debut with Ranam. From its super promising promos, the movie does not look like a typical action entertainer. It has a style that instantly reminds one of Hollywood action flicks. Shot entirely in the US, the movie explores the lives of the immigrant community in Detroit, Michigan.
Prithviraj reportedly plays a Tamil street gang member in the movie, which is inspired by real life incidents. Rahman plays a gangster named Damodar Ratnam. Ashwin K Kumar and Sampath Raj are also there in crucial roles. Its technical crew comprises of cinematographer Jigme Tenzing, composer Jakes Bejoy, editor Sreejith Sarang and Christopher Brunetti, a renowned stuntman who has worked in many Hollywood movies.
Ranam is produced jointly by Anand Kumar Payyanur of Yes Cinema Company and Rani Lawson Biju of Lawson Entertainment.
