Sun TV and AVM deny the Sivaji deal!!
June 27, 2006
Reports that the Sun Network group has bought the overseas and televisions rights of the yet to be completed Sivaji has raised a storm in the motion picture trade circles.

Both the Sun TV and the Producers, AVM, came out quickly to deny the reports. In a joint statement issued by Hansraj Saxena, Sun TV’s Programme Director, and M Saravanan and MS Guhan of AVM Productions, they have said that there has never been such a deal. “Sivaji business process is yet to start. The movie has not even been completed. There is no truth behind the rumours,” said both the parties.

In this context it must be remembered that Chandramukhi satellite rights were grabbed by Sun TV group at a whopping amount just to out do their rival, the Jaya TV. On screen or on television, Rajini’s movies are a gold mine. His movies do extremely well in countries as diverse as South Africa and Australia. Chandramukhi did a record business of $2.5 million in overseas market alone. At an interview, speaking about the Indian film industry waking up to global market, famous Bollywood filmmaker Ramesh Sippy said that Chandramukhi would hit the Japanese screens in August and European screens by November. In Japan, Rajini has a large fan following and the movie is expected to do well. With Rajini’s global presence, it is no wonder that his movies are making business even before they are completed. If Sun TV and AVM have made a joint statement, it looks like they are into it together already!
