Initially, back in October of 2022, a few reports claimed that the streaming giant had picked up the film for a price close to Rs. 150 crores. However, OTTplay learns that isn't the case.
The Kannada Film Industry is churning out exciting content round the clock and the latter end of 2022 will enunciate just that. While KGF 2 took the entire world by storm, fans are awaiting the release of the Upendra starrer Kabzaa which comes as a grand and glorious period film, set against the backdrop of crime and gangsters.
The teaser of Kabzaa premiered on September 17 and the film looks every bit a mega spectacle that boasts of Ravi Basrur's soundtrack, art director Shivakumar's production design, and AJ Shetty's slick cinematography.
Initially, back in October of 2022, a few sources online claimed that the streaming giant had picked up the film for a price close to Rs. 150 crores. However, OTTplay learns this is an exaggeration figure and the actual price is nowhere close to this.
Amazon Prime Video had previously bagged similar streaming rights to both the K.G.F films (all languages) and looks like the streaming service is keen on tapping into Kannada cinema. Lucky Man, starring Darling Krishna, Puneeth Rajkumar, and Sangeetha Sringeri, will premiere on Prime on October 7.
As far as Kabzaa is concerned, the film is currently in the post-production stage and the makers are yet to announce the theatrical release date of the film. Touted as a bona fide pan-India release with multiple dubbed versions, Kabzaa stars Upendra, Shriya Saran, Kiccha Sudeep, Nawab Shah, Murali Sharma and an array of talented actors with Shiva Rajkumar slated to play a cameo: the film released worldwide in multiple Indian languages on March 17th.
Just as in the case of K.G.F, Kabzaa too is likely to be released as a two-part film considering the vast storyline, which spans multiple decades. More details to follow soon.
