If sources are to be believed, then Malashri starrer 'Election' has got a whopping two and a half crores for the satellite rights and the film has been sold to an entertainment channel.
If this is true, then this is the highest amount a heroine oriented film has got from satellite channels. Actors like Puneeth and Darshan command more than four crores while Shivarajkumar and Upendra's film get more than two crores. But none of the films which have heroines in main roles has got such a huge amount. Moreover, there are no heroines who can command such a big amount from the satellite channels. So, if Malashri starrer 'Election' has got 2.5 crores, then Malashri would be the first heroine to get such huge money just by satellite channels.
Apart from that, 'Election' is almost finished with just an item song pending. Ragini has accepted to be the part of the song and the song will be shot in a set soon. Meanwhile, producer Ramu is planning to finish the song and release the film before the elections.
