With producer Mahesh S Koneru bagging the Telugu release rights of Bigil, the film is likely to be brought to the Telugu states on Deepavali, according to reports.
Thalapathy Vijay enjoys a huge fan following and many of his earlier films have also been dubbed and released in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The film did very well at the box office.
Bigil will be presented under the producer's home banner - East Coast Productions. Vijay's Sarkar was also released under the same banner and did really well at the box office.
