    In recent times Shree Ashtavinayak partnered with Studio 18 for the worldwide distribution rights of all its movies. After a long gap now, the company has bought all India theatrical rights for any movie. Trade sources inform that Shree Ashtavinayak may further sell the sub distribution rights for territories.  

    Eros International will distribute the movie in the overseas.
