BHUBANESWAR: Anubhav Mohanty starrer Odia movie Agastya has set a path-breaking record even before its release.
The rights of the film have been brought by TV channel Sarthak at a whopping Rs 40 lacs, an unprecedented amount as per Ollywood standards.
The movie is scheduled to hit the silver screen this Rajo.
The Ollywood industry seems happy with this recent development.
This is a good sign for the producers and directors who can now focus more on the quality of the films they make rather than worrying about the budget. If such trends prevail, the Ollywood industry will no doubt see progress and the audience can look forward to more quality Odia films, said industry sources.
The film is produced by Akshaya Parija and directed by K. Murali Krishna.
