Ram’s Hindi market has increased beyond leaps and bounds. The Hindi dubbing rights of Ram’s ongoing film – The Warrior were reportedly sold for Rs 16 crores which is a whopping amount.
Ram is now collaborating with Boyapati Sreenu for #RAPO20. This is a crazy combination as both Ram and Boyapati command great patronage in the North Indian circuit. This should help the film in fetching a bigger sum from the Hindi dubbing rights. Ram too is focused on expanding his market across the country and has been setting up his projects accordingly.
