Hrithik Roshan signs a Rs 550 crore deal for his upcoming films
Actor Hrithik Roshan, who was recently on an African adventure with his boys Hridhaan and Hrehaan, has reportedly made a killer deal upon his return to the city.
According to report in a leading daily, the actor has signed a deal worth Rs 550 crore for the satellite rights of his next six films, starting next year.
A source close the the development told Mumbai Mirror, “Hrithik’s last four films, over the last five years, from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara in 2011 and Agneepath in 2012 to Krrish 3 the following year and Bang Bang in 2014, all did well commercially which is the reason that this deal was inked.”
“In fact, 2017 will begin with a bang for him with his home production Kaabil, a Sanjay Gupta-directed action-drama, which along with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees will be one of the first big films of the year to unveil on the Republic Day weekend. Even before the film went on the floors, satellite rights were sold for Rs 45 crore. All the other films are expected to fetch around half a crore,” he added.
Back in 2013, Bollywood’s bhaijaan Salman Khan had also signed a first of its kind deal with a leading television network granting them exclusive rights to premiere and broadcast all his films releasing between January 2013 and December 2017. While the exact amount of the deal was not disclosed, sources claimed that it was in the range of Rs 500 crore.
Apart from Salman and Hrithik, Varun Dhawan is also believed to have entered into a Rs 300 crore deal with a channel for his upcoming films, with the exception of Judwaa 2.
