Nagarjuna and Sonal Chauhan’s The Ghost hit the theatres on October 5. This action-packed thriller film failed to live up to the expectations of the audience. According to trade analysts, the film grossed Rs 3.5 crores on its opening day, which was an absolute shocker for Nagarjuna fans.
While the Telugu film is currently battling it out with Chiranjeevi’s GodFather at the box office, it has been reported that the streaming rights of the Nagarjuna-starrer will be sold to Netflix. Speculations are rife that the producers of The Ghost will officially sign the deal with the popular streaming platform soon. After the film completes its theatrical run, it will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix.
