Rahul Sanktrityan is making his directorial debut with this upcoming horror thriller drama. It is a low budget movie which is being made of around Rs 3 Crores. The sources say that Vijay Deverakonda has got Rs 30 Lakh as remuneration for Taxiwala which is very less if we consider his present market. The craze of Vijay is so high that the entire investment has been recovered just by selling satellite and digital rights even before the release of the film.
According to the latest update, Vijay Deverakonda is testing his luck as a distributor with this film and he has acquired the overseas distribution rights of Taxiwala for Rs. 80 lakh. It is a very good deal considering Pelli Choopulu and Arjun Reddy both grossed over Million Dollars in USA. Let’s wait and see how much profit he earns through distribution.
Vijay will be seen playing the role of cab driver and the entire shoot of the film has been already wrapped up and currently it is in post production stage. Taxiwala is arriving at the theaters on 18th May. The sources say that the makers are planning a big release of this film to cash in on Vijay’s market share, which went up after his hit film Arjun Reddy.
