Investment of anywhere around Rs 30 crore is assumed to be a safe bet on a Nani-starrer. That is why Distributors have come forward to bet that much on 'Gang Leader' although Nani, Vikram Kumar and Mythri Movie Makers hasn't delivered hits with their recent projects.
Majority of the contribution has come from Nizam and Overseas...That's almost half of the entire Theatrical Business! Why because Films of Nani and Vikram Kumar have always done well in these two territories. Buzz began picking-up when the release date is approaching. Let's hope the confidence of the Team Gang Leader translates into Box Office numbers..!
