Directed by Trivikram and featuring Mahesh and Trisha in the lead, ‘Athadu’ released on August 10th, 2005 and with time it gained cult status. If your ears could believe, this flick hasn’t lost its sharpness even after getting close to 8 years of release.

The tenure of Mahesh Babu’s 2005 thriller flick ‘Athadu’ got expired few months back. This is in connection with the satellite rights owned by MAA TV, for airing Athadu on small screen. People who watch MAA TV a lot usually watch Athadu a lot as that flick is kept playing on the channel at least a couple of times in a month. what is surprising is that family audiences still watch Athadu on TV whenever it is aired. Keeping this demand in mind, it is heard that MAA TV has brought Athadu rights for second time for 8 years tenure. To renew the contract, the popular entertainment channel has reportedly paid 3.5 crores for the makers.

No doubt, this is another record in the kitty of Mahesh whose ‘1 Nenokkadine’ holds the record of a movie that got sold for highest ever price for satellite rights at 13 crores.
