Hyderabad: 'Bheemla Nayak', the Telugu remake of the Malayalam blockbuster movie 'Ayyappanum Koshiyum' has been in the news for a long time now. The film is set to release on 12 January and expectations on this Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati-starrer are huge, making it one of the most hyped Telugu movies.

Directed by Sagar Chandra, the film has Trivikram Srinivas penning the dialogues and screenplay.

The fact is that the movie has good demand with buyers and traders trying to grab the rights for their respective areas in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states. Despite the willingness to buy the movie for a whopping amount, the buyers are still ambiguous about Andhra Pradesh's rights.

It is known that Pawan Kalyan, the popular actor turned politician, is not in the good books of the Andhra Pradesh government after he questioned them regarding a few welfare-related problems. These comments triggered trouble for his movies in unforeseen ways.

The government's reaction during Pawan Kalyan's 'Vakeel Saab' release proved the same. Now that the government has decided to impose ticket pricing restrictions, the buyers are worried.

While the film's Telangana rights are worth crores, Andhra Pradesh's buyers are not happy with the ongoing situation though the makers of 'Bheemla Nayak' are prepping up with strategic promotional stunts. This trouble is not going to end anytime soon as the makers are still trying to solve this issue amicably with the government of Andhra Pradesh.

The filmmakers are trying out several promotional campaigns. Three songs have already been released and during Diwali, they even released a short teaser. Music for the film, which also stars Nithya Menen, Samyuktha, and Murali Sharma, is composed by S.S Thaman.
