There were 130 entries in 20 categories out which 34 were short listed for nominations. Mayavi is one of the three serials that won the special prize.

"The award has attracted couple of Chinese and Korean channels. We have been approached by them for dubbing rights," V Ravee, CEO, told the media here Thursday.

The 26 episode television serial was first telecast by Jaya TV evoked good viewer response.

As 3D programmes are to be viewed through a special glass, Jaya TV and G V Films efficiently completed the daunting task of distributing around 90 lakh special spectacles priced at Rs.6.

Now Kairali TV shows Mayavi dubbed in Malayalam and negotiations with a Telugu channel for dubbing in that language are over. In addition talks are to telecast in other languages like Marathi, Gujarathi, Rajasthani, Bengali and Hindi over a leading national channel.

According to A Venkatramani, director, the dubbed serial would earn around Rs40 million for G V Films. He also said the company plans to build Mayavi into a brand like 007 and produce movies and TV serials.
