Times of India reports that Star India has signed a deal worth Rs 450 to 500 crore with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
The contract is for the exclusive satellite rights of all Salman Khan films released between January 2013 to December 2017. What this effectively means is, all movies featuring Salman in the next 5 years would be exclusively premiered on Star channels (Star Plus, Star Gold etc).
While the terms and conditions of the deal are unlikely to be revealed, the average price per film is around Rs 45 – 50 crores, considering the fact that Khan has two movie releases every year.
A few of his upcoming films include; a film directed by Sohail Khan, Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick and No Entry Mein Entry (sequel to No Entry). Khan, sources say, is also keen on working with Sooraj Barjatya in a romantic film.
