After the release of the first single — Dum Masala — from Tollywood Superstar Mahesh Babu’s Guntur Kaaram, expectations of the movie rose sky-high among audiences.

Meanwhile, an insider’s talk about a new deal worth ₹115 crore has piqued the interest of both industry people and moviegoers.

It is reported that this hefty price is being offered to the makers of Guntur Kaaram for the theatrical rights in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.

If the figure is true, Guntur Kaaram will be the only commercial movie to be released in Telugu with such an unprecedented price on its head.

With no visual effects or graphics to its name, with no pan-India buzz surrounding it, and with no dubbing versions in other languages that are not planned yet, Guntur Kaaram just banks on its combination of Mahesh Babu and Trivikram.

Meanwhile, due to massive competition for Sankranthi, buyers are cautious about buying movies.

Big stars like Venkatesh Daggubati, Vijay Deverakonda, and Ravi Teja, along with Teja Sajja’s Hanuman have so far locked horns for Pongal.

But the version of distributors is such that Mahesh Babu-starrer will be exempted from the race because the Superstar can please both mass and family audiences alike.

Guntur Kaaram could fare well at the box office.

Starring Sreeleela and Meenakshi Chaudhary as leading ladies, the film also casts Jagapathi Bab, Ramya Krishna, Jayaram, and Prakash Raj in key roles.

Guntur Kaaram is bankrolled by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the Sithara Entertainments banner.

The music is composed by S Thaman.

The movie follows the story of the underworld king of Guntur city, who falls in love with a journalist working to expose the illegal activities in the city.
