Given the record opening Mankatha has enjoyed at the box office, it is not surprising that the decision has been made to dub and release it in Telugu. The film will be titled Gambler and is slotted for release on September 9th. Recently a number of films that have been dubbed in Telugu like Rangam (Ko), Na Peru Siva (Naan Mahan Alla), etc have done fantastic business, so in trade circles it is generally opined that there is a big market for Tamil films in AP.
Producer, Bellamkonda Suresh who has a lot of experience has decided to release Mankatha in Telugu. The music is already a rage and the film had created the same feverish buzz there which explains why it has been decided to release it in more than 220 screens which is on par with a regular Telugu film. Mankatha is following closely on Enthiran's heels and if it continues pulling in audiences at the same right it just might set a new record.
