My Name Is Khan directed by Karan Johar will now be co-produced by both Shahrukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
The reason for the decision to jointly produce the film is the budget of My Name Is Khan, which is expected to be huge. The other reason could be SRK’s high market value and his remuneration for the film would increase the budget substancially. But now with SRK being the co-producer the profit’s (or losses, if any) would be shared.
Previously, the two celebrities known for the warm friendship they share, produced Kaal (Ajay Devgan, Vivek Oberoi film) which disappointed at the box-office.
With My Name Is Khan, Karan has managed to sign the hit jodi of SRK and Kajol together, for the first time since Karan’s very own K3G.
The film will release later this year.
