Here's one BIG news! There're whispers in the industry that Eros has taken over the worldwide distribution rights of Vipul Shah's Akshay-Katrina starrer Namastey London for a whopping Rs. 36 crores. True or false? "Till we sign on the dotted line and money exchanges hands, I wouldn't say that we're through with the deal. Yes, we have finalized the terms and conditions, but the document is not signed yet," Vipul states. What's the deal like? "The figure [Rs. 36 crores] is right. The deal is for the first term of three years and pertains to the worldwide distribution rights," the soft-spoken director adds.
Meanwhile, the film-maker denies that he has postponed the release of Namastey London from 16th February to March/April next year. "No way! I am recording the background score from 25th November onwards and I am sure of meeting the deadline of 16th February, 2007," he clarifies.
