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 shooting.
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.
