Shahrukh Khan’s film Chennai Express was in the news for the Tv rights of the flick, which have been received by upcoming channel End Films, owned by Zee group for Rs.40 crore. The record for the maximum satellite rights of a movie belongs to Salman Khan’s film Dabangg 2 (Rs44 crore).
It’s found that the channel will cough up over the said amount if this Rohit Shetty directed film if/when it crosses the Rs100-crore mark. Just A day after the news of Chennai Express being sold at Rs.40 crore on satellite, comes a bigger surprise. 2 channels – Colours and Sony – are keen for the Tv rights of Aamir Khan-starrer Dhoom 3. The price that the 2 channels are offering is a massive Rs75 crore. YRF always sells their satellite rights to Sony.
If YRF is receiving Rs.75 Crore for the Tv rights, it’s a huge price. Both the prices of Chennai Express and Dhoom 3 aren’t justified as due to different channels keen to buy the rights.
