KGF was a blockbuster in Telugu states and it had brought immense profits for Sai Korrapati. His excitement knows no bounds for releasing its sequel too. Moreover, KGF 2 makers are expecting a whopping of Rs 40 Cr to Rs 50 Cr to bag Telugu version rights for this much anticipated Kannada sequel.
Sai Korrapati bought KGF rights for a throwaway price and is willing to pay Rs 20 Cr for KGF 2. But the price asked for, itself is more than double that offer. Even they are not showing much interest to pay Rs 40 Cr for a Kannada dubbed film in spite of the success of its predecessor.

They should consider to release the film on its own or go with the producer that quotes best price. Also Read | KGF Director Prashanth Neel Gets THIS Whopping Amount In Advance To Direct Jr NTR Film?
