In a business decision, which will impact television deals of all Shah Rukh Khan films, the actor is said to be in the process of acquiring all of his previous films.
Mid-Day reports that Khan has apparently already purchased the rights of the television series ‘Idiot’ (1982) and the feature film ‘Chaahat’ (1996), in which he played the lead role.
A source told Mid-Day, SRK wants to buys the rights of most of the films he has worked in. He has already started the process and has been speaking to producers. He has finished his deal with Robin Bhatt who had produced the Mahesh Bhatt directed SRK-Pooja Bhatt starrer Chaahat. In fact, this was the only film that Robin Bhatt had produced and that too on SRK۪s insistence.
Bhatt confirms having finalised the deal with Shah Rukh. He says, The necessary formalities will be done soon. In fact, SRK had been telling me about it since the past 10 years but I wasn۪t ready about it back than. He has given me a very good price as well.
There are at least 40 films that Khan has acted in before he turned producer.
