Premalu Telugu to debut on Disney+ Hotstar

The Telugu dubbed version of the Malayalam blockbuster Premalu, which was released in the Telugu states on 8 March, has garnered widespread praise.

Featuring actors Mamitha Baiju and Naslen K Gafoor in the lead roles, the film struck a chord with youngsters and family audiences.

SS Karthikeya, son of renowned director SS Rajamouli, acquired the Telugu dubbing rights and released the flick in the two Telugu states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

The success of Premalu can be partly credited to Rajamouli’s promotion and Superstar Mahesh Babu’s positive endorsement.

The popular OTT platform Disney+ Hotstar has bought the digital rights for the film.

It is anticipated that the movie will be available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar in multiple languages from 29 March.

An official clarification has been issued regarding the release of the film.

Premalu Telugu earned ₹4.25 crore from the Telugu states and $186K (₹1.55 crore) from overseas. It grossed over $200K from the USA.

Meanwhile, the Tamil dubbed version of Premalu was released in theatres across Tamil Nadu on 15 March.

Originally released as a short romantic comedy-drama, the flick has transcended regional boundaries to become a pan-India success.

There’s speculation that it might also make waves on OTT platforms unexpectedly.

Mamitha Baiju’s rising popularity

Meanwhile, the photos of actor Mamitha Baiju are going viral along with various aspects related to her.

During the success meet, Mamitha received accolades from Rajamouli himself, further fueling discussions about her on social media platforms.

Premalu has grossed over ₹100 crore in the Malayalam market alone.

The actor’s rise to fame with the success of the film has grabbed attention nationwide, with her fans hoping that her career could skyrocket if she continues to select quality projects.

Mamitha Baiju’s rising popularity appears to have increased her remuneration. With her growing fan base transcending language barriers, the actor is poised to make a significant impact at the box office in the days to come.
