The Vijay starrer Bairava was released earlier this year amidst a lot of expectations and did quite well at the box office. And now, a film distributor from Andhra and Telangana regions has purchased the dubbing rights for a record price. Sources say that the distributor evinced interest in having Bairava released in Telugu as its lead star Vijay enjoys a good fan following in the Telugu speaking states. The dubbed version has been titled Vijaya Bairava and will be out at the theatres this month. According to trade reports, Bairava had grossed over Rs. 100 crores at the box office on its release.
Directed by Bharathan, this action entertainer has been produced by Vijaya Productions’ B Bharathi Reddy. The film has Keerthy Suresh pairing up with the Ilayathalapathy for the first time. Also in the star cast are the Tollywood star Jagapathi Babu, Daniel Balaji, Thambi Ramaiah and Sathish. The film had a strong technical crew with Santhosh Narayanan scoring the music, M Sukumar wielding the camera and KL Praveen editing it.
On its release on January 12, 2017, Bairavaa had a massive opening with the film being out in as many as 55 countries. In a statement issued by the makers of Bairavaa, it was stated that the film would be out in countries such as Mexico, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Russia where no Tamil film had released until now. Bairavaa was out at the theatres in African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Zambia as well.
With a massive success and a huge fan following in Andhra and Telangana, the Telugu distributor is eyeing a suitable weekend to release the Telugu dubbed version. Sources in the trade say that the film will be out this month and the release date will be announced officially soon.
