Rohit Shetty has become hot property following the success of his last movie, ‘Bol Bachchan’ (2012). Therefore, news that his forthcoming ‘Chennai Express’, starring King Khan, has sold for a whopping 105 crore should come as no surprise.
A trusted source revealed to Times of India, “Shah Rukh and a film corporation are partnering on this one. Chances are that they will only sell the�� satellite, home video and music rights and actually keep the overseas and Indian theatrical rights with themselves”. The project is co-produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur who was not prepared��to give��comment.
It is a little premature in belief that despite only selling part of the��rights, the team are rumoured to have sold them for��such a magnificient amount. No doubt confirmation will be something that comes to light later. However, it deserves to be said that not only is this a venture anticipated heavily by the audiences but also trade folk too.
