But Naga Chaitanya, the third generation from their family is not having a smooth ride. He is yet to be established as a hero, meanwhile the much expected film Autonagar Surya has ended up in rough weather and is having trouble reaching the theatres.
Even as Badshah has released to packed houses in Andhra Pradesh, the film is already hitting the headlines for remake rights.
It is believed that Vijay is keen on the Tamil remake of the film and is very much interested in it. The present offer is 3 crores and this is definitely a huge price for remake rights and a record of sorts. Vijay is said to have accepted for the amount.
