The usual practice of Hindi film industry is that the distribution
rights of a film is sold after its muhurth or post completion. But
with the entry of corporate houses, this trend seems to be
changing. The latest buzz is that the distribution rights of
Krrish 2 has been acquired even before it started
The much-anticipated movie Krrish 2 will star Hrithik
Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Jacqueline Fernandez in
the leads. According to trade pandits, the Bollywood film
distributors have lapped up Krrish 2 for huge amount even
before its mahurth. They claim that Rakesh Roshan has pocketed Rs
125 crores from selling his next Krrish franchisee.
Following the success of Krrish, director Rakesh Roshan
planned to develop a sequel for the film. He had penned the script
in early 2007, but had to re-work on it as the storyline, which was
drastically similar to the Hollywood blockbuster Spider-Man
3. The moment he announced Krrish earlier this year,
the film distributors started juggling for its rights.
Meanwhile, it would be worth to mention here that another
Bollywood movie has fetched huge amount of money. It is none other
than actor Ajay Devgn's forthcoming movie Son Of Sardar,
which is expected to hit the screens in 2012. The comedy film is
said to have been sold for a whopping amount of Rs 80 crores.
