The makers of Nithiin's Rang De planned to release the film in theaters next Sankranthi but they seem to be exploring other options now. Apparently, Zee 5 has offered Rs 36 crores for the direct to digital rights of the film.
Well, this is the biggest deal offered for a mid-range Telugu film. Previously, the digital rights of Nani's 'V' were reportedly sold for Rs 32 crores. Now, if the makers of Rang De oblige to sign an agreement with Zee 5, it will be the most lucrative OTT deal for a Telugu film till date.
Also, there are rumors that the makers of the Venky Atluri directorial are planning to release the film on a pay-per-view model. The makers are remaining tight-lipped about these speculations for now.
Rang De has Nithiin and Keerthy Suresh in lead roles.
