Rajinikanth’s Pedanna coming on January 15 on Gemini TV

Superstar Rajinikanth’s recently released Annaatthe earned over Rs 200 crore at the box office. On its release day, November 4, the film did decent business at the box office, despite some negative reviews. However, its Telugu version, Pedanna, which released during the Diwali week in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, could not do well.

After the theatrical release, Pedanna was released on OTT platform Sun Next in the last week of November. Now the film is ready for TV premiere. According to reports, Pedanna will be telecast on Gemini TV on January 15 on the occasion of Sankranti festival.

According to reports, Pedanna collected Rs 4.03 crore at the box office in two Telugu speaking states-Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The rights for the Telugu version of the film were acquired for Rs 12 crore. The amount is negligible considering the popularity of superstar Rajinikanth among the Telugu audience. But the film could not earn anything special at the box office.

This is not the first time that a Rajinikanth film has exploded at the box office in the Telugu film industry. After Superstar’s 2010 blockbuster Robo, the Telugu remake of Enthiran, Rajinikanth’s other films have not been well received by Telugu audiences.

The film received harsh criticism for its over-melodrama and old-school sibling relationship plot. In the film, Keerthy Suresh plays the role of Rajinikanth’s sister, while Nayanthara plays the female lead opposite Rajinikanth.

The film is directed by filmmaker Shiva. This film marked Rajinikanth’s first collaboration with him. Produced under the banner of Sun Pictures, the film stars Prakash Raj along with Khushboo, Meena, Jagapathi Babu, Suri, Satish and Abhimanyu in lead roles.
