How Much Did Amazon Prime Pay For Tuck Jagadish?

Nani's Tuck Jagadish is all set to skip theatrical release and premiere directly on Amazon Prime Video. Several reliable reports claim that Amazon Prime has closed the deal with the makers of Tuck Jagadish and the film is heading the OTT way. Here comes the big question, how much did Amazon Prime pay for the direct to digital rights of Tuck Jagadish? The answer is that the top OTT platform did shell out big bucks for the direct OTT rights of the film.

AS per reports, the direct to digital rights of Tuch Jagadish have fetched a handsome price of Rs 37 crores. This is one of the most lucrative deals for any Telugu film to date. The makers have recovered their entire investment and also made minor profits from the digital rights alone. They might be entering the profits zone by selling off the satellite, audio, and dubbing rights.

There is no official update in this regard but it is heard that the makers of Tuck Jagadish have pocketed as much as Rs 50 crores by selling out the direct to digital, satellite, audion, and dubbing rights of the film. Given the positive reverberations surrounding Tuck Jagadish, Amazon Prime Video came up with a big offer for the film. This is much more than what they had offered for any Telugu film till date.

It is not official yet but Tuck Jagadish is likely to premiere on Amazon Prime Video this December. An official announcement on the digital premieres date will be made sooner than later.

The theatrical business in Andhra Pradesh is highly unpredictable and also unfavourable given the restrictions on ticket pricing and also the night curfew regulations. With so much going against new theatrical releases, the makers of many mainstream films are now contemplating the OTT release proposal. We can expect a few more Telugu films like Virata Parvam, Love Story, and others to seriously consider direct OTT release prospects. All hopes now lie on RRR which is expected to revive theatrical business across the country. Only this film has what it takes to pull the audiences to the theaters.
