20 Cr for Just 3 Songs!
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has evolved into box office behemoth in the past couple pf years. Together with Aamir Khan, he has pushed the global superstar Shah Rukh Khan far behind in the BO race.
With the last two releases of the actor – Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan turning out to be huge money spinners, the actor’s new release ‘Tubelight’ has become the hottest cake in market now. The film’s theatrical rights were already sold for a record price of Rs 130Cr+ and now, as per media reports, the Salman starrer has struck an unbelievable deal.
Reportedly, the audio rights of Tubelight were sold to Sony for Rs 20 crore. This is the biggest deal for the music of any film till date. And, what makes this deal even more lucrative is that the album doesn’t have 5-6 songs as regular films do but only 3 songs. Rs 20 crore for 3 songs is a phenomenal deal which none but Salman Khan’s stardom could have pulled off.
‘Tubelight’ is being directed by Kabir Khan, who has earlier directed the superstar in BO juggernauts such as Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film is slated to hit screens for Ramzan this year, on 23rd June.
