Mega Prince Varun Tej's sci-fi thriller, Antariksham is all set to launch on December 21st. While the film has been generating enough buzz prior to its release, distributors are wary of the film owing to its unconventional genre and lack of any masala, fights or over the top songs. Distributors were also quoting a very low rate for the film, even lower than the 23 Crore which Varun's Tholiprema made at the box office, due to which the producers have decided to release the movie themselves in the Telugu states.
Antariksham has been made with a budget of just 16 crores, inclusive of remuneration, visual effects, and other costs. Fans are eagerly waiting to catch the film on the screen and its hype is spreading well through word of mouth. Given a good opening start, the producers can expect profits right away. However, given the unconventional theme of the film, we will have to see if it will cater well to Telugu audiences. The producers are however aiming for the stars.
