The cine-goers across the country, who have missed Rajinikanth's Darbar to watch in theatres, have a good news. Well, the AR Murugadoss-directorial film will be streamed online in a popular OTT.
Well, Amazon Prime has acquired the digital rights of Darbar. Although the makers of the film have not revealed the price paid for the rights, it is estimated that the rights could have sold easily for over Rs 20 crore.
In the recent history, Amazon Prime had acquired the digital rights of Vijay's biggie Bigil for a record price. The film was streamed on the day it completed its 50-day theatrical run. So, the Rajini-starrer, which was released on 9 January, could expect to hit the internet, officially, in the last week of February.
The latest deal will only help the OTT to increase its subscriptions among the South Indian cine-goers.
