When it is the Khans, expect the unexpected. If they make their films earn dollops, they can also manage to churn money out of their films even before the trailer is out. We are talking about Shah Rukh Khan‘s film with Anushka Sharma that has already earned Rs. 100 crore. How? Well, according to Bollywoodhungama, all India and overseas distribution rights of the film has been sold at a whopping price of Rs 100 crore and more.
The trade portal quoted Narendra Hirawat of NH Studioz who has bagged the rights exclusively. He said, “Yes I have acquired the All India and overseas distribution rights of The Ring, but I will not comment on the cost of the same.” – It is also reported that the deal apparently has been struck at a huge sum of Rs 125 crore!
During Dilwale, reports claimed that the distribution rights fetched the makers Rs.170 crore where Rs 130 crore was through the sale of India rights and 40 crore overseas. But Dilwale was sold to many distributors while NH Studioz is the sole rights owner of The Ring. This is damn interesting. It is an SRK film whose name is still ambiguous with some calling it Rehnuma and others The Ring. And yet, the distributions rights have scooped up with such a huge number. Of course, it’s the might of Shah Rukh Khan that worked here. But we don’t think this has happened before that a film whose first trailer is yet to be out and has already gained so much money.
We told you that SRK plays a womaniser and a guide in the film. The images from the sets of the film from Prague made us go crazy about this man who is looking really sexy. When you have a charming guide to escort you, travel becomes pretty, isn’t it? Maybe that’s the premise of this Imtiaz Ali film which will release on the Independence Day weekend this year. Salman Khan had revealed the first look of the film and we went crazy talking about it.
We loved Shahrukh & Anushka together in these movies previously:
