No sooner than the theatrical launch of Hrithik Roshan starrer Agneepath was aired, that Filmtrac (audience tracking) and TradeTrac (tracking tradewallahs) saw a major spike.
Agneepath is also rated as the one of the most awaited film of 2012. If Twitter reports done by Ormax Media are seen, Agneepath scored 30, followed by Yash Chopra’s directorial venture with Shah Rukh Khan, Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg-2 and Rowdy Rathore.
Vajir Singh, Trade journal editor, says, “By virtue of the fact that the film comes in the first month of the year and because it has bankable names in it, is on top of the list of the most exciting films of next year.”
Apart from all this, Karan Johar has also topped the satellite rights for Agneepath. The film has been sold for a whopping Rs 41 crore, the highest ever. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh says, “I’m not shocked with this piece of information or the reported price because as I said earlier Hrithik’s movie rights including that of Kites was picked up for a huge amount. The actor is one of our most dependable superstars and obviously there is a rush to buy the rights of his movies. To me, the month of January is looking exciting because of Agneepath.”
