Aamir Khan beats SRK: Talaash sold for 90 crores

Aamir Khan’s Talaash beats Shahrukh Khan’s Don 2 by 10 crores!

The intense competition between the two Khan’s – three if you include Salman – will probably never end. This time around, Aamir Khan has broken the 80 crore record of Don 2, as the theatrical rights of his film Talaash has been sold to Reliance for a whopping 90 crores! Sources say that the deal was made last week.

Records are great, but the 90 crore figure will be difficult to recover. Sources say, Aamir is confident about the deal. Trade analysts too believe that it is a reasonable amount, since Talaash will be Aamir’s first commercial film after the success of 3 Idiots in 2009.

Directed by Reema Kagti, who last directed Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd, Talaash also features Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee in pivotal roles. This psychological thriller produced by Excel Entertainment and Aamir Khan Productions is slated for release on June 1st this year.



  • this is a huge risk. even if the film is good,it might flop because indians don`t like such movies.

  • The film got that amount only coz of Aamir..
    Talaash seems soooooo serious ‘sherlock holmes’ kind of film..that its tough to say it can do blockbuster business..
    Unless it is extra ordinary film.

  • Srk is the unit of brand…….amir’s talash is not the highest in terms of rights sales as fox international entertainment bought the rights of Srk starrer Mnik for 100crs in 2010 for its worlwide release……
    So ranking may be like this….
    1.MNIK-100crs FOX entertainment
    2.Talash-90 crs Reliance entertainment
    3.Don2-80 crs Reliance entertainment
    4.3 idiots-75 crs
