Cowboy film sold for 99 lakhs in Guntur
Babu's Cowboy film expectations are skyrocketing day by day. After Jayant
gave the distribution responsibility to Mayuri, the craze seems to have
become more intensified. Guntur area holds a special place for Mahesh
Babu, as it's his home place. There are lots of hardcore Mahesh Babu
fans out there. Mahesh Babu's earlier film Murari was sold for 75 lakhs,
which was higher for any big hero at that time. Later on Pawan Kalyan
Kushi created a record among the trade circles by getting sold for 90
lakhs. A famous distribution agency has offered 99 lakhs for Mahesh
Babu's Cowboy film under production in the direction of Jayant. This
figure is the highest ever offered for Guntur area for any hero. Now
the producers are negotiating with Mayuri distribution to let the Guntur
area off. Incidentally, when the cowboy film was started nobody was
willing give even Murari price (75 lakhs) for this film.

which includes Abhay, Sabhash and Dasu. This Diwali is having four main
releases. They are Paravasam by AM Ratnam, Abhay by Kamal Hasan, Darling
Darling by Srikanth and Jabili by SV Krishna Reddy. We got to wait and
