The Hindi remake rights of Soodhu Kavvum directed by Nalan Kumarasamy starring Vijay Sethupathi and Sanchita Shetty in lead roles have gone for a record price. The film hit the screens on May 1 and has been doing good business at the TN Box Office due to its excellent word of mouth. The rights have been sold to an undisclosed producer who had paid a very high price for a relatively low budget film.
Soodhu Kavvum has completed a 25 day successful run at the box office and is still doing good. Producer KE Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green had tweeted, “Soothu Kavvum Hindi rights sold for a very big price never heard for a Tamil film.”
