Hrithik breaks Aamir’s record, reclaims top spot!

It all started with Ra One, as Shahrukh Khan most-ambitious superhero film fetched 35 crores for it’s satellite rights. Later, when Rakesh Roshan announced Krrish 3, the Ra One record stood broken as Star TV acquired the rights for a whopping 38 crores.

About a week later, Aamir Khan’s Dhuan claimed the top spot, as the satellite rights of the Reema Kagti directed film was sold for about 40 crores.

Now Hrithik, who just finished a successful stint on television with Just Dance, has reclaimed the top spot with Agneepath!

According to Times of India, the film has fetched Rs 41 crores. Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying “Agneepath is hot property in the industry today. The promos have got a great response. Everybody is looking forward to seeing Hrithik playing the legendary (character of) Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, the role that Amitabh Bachchan did in the original. That’s the reason the channel did not hesitate in shelling out Rs 41 crore. Even Aamir Khan’s film with Reema Kagti and SRK’s RA One have fetched lesser money than Agneepath.”

A source from the channel said “Yes we have bought Agneepath at a huge price but I can’t speak about the economics in print. We had a couple of options but we went for Agneepath because we firmly believe that all of Hrithik Roshan’s films except Lakshya have done tremendous business on satellite. The promos of Agneepath are a rage right now and that’s why we put our bets on this film.”

The media created Hrithik Roshan vs Aamir Khan battle is from over though as Aamir’s Dhoom 3 is likely to fetch an astronomical price! Still, for a film like Agneepath, 41 crores is huge!

  • i hard that srk has diabetes if thsts was the case i felt sorry for him bcz his face might be effected by this now i don’t like srk now bcz of his rift wiyh salman. but i deserves respect he comes from a poor family and neither of his parents r alive when he enred the industry but as far as other khans concerns they have established background to support them

  • Yes it is true that heavy part of Ra.One’s budget has been recovered..thru satellite rights..etc..
    So at Boxoffice its a win win situation for Ra.One..considering this recovery..

  • @Indicine Team – I think you guys are mistaken.
    Ra.One satellite right have been sold for 40 crores. :)
    And i firmly believe that Don 2 will break Agneepath 41 cr. by a big margin.

  • I am a fan of Hrithik but what I want all of you to accept is that, TV rights doesn’t matter. It’s just a matter of who sold the tv right later. Because the later claimer will claim for the highest price. HR, AMir, SRK, Salman both are able to break this record quite often. I think selling the right of Krrish 3 has been a mistake for Rakesh Roshan because he could sell it with almost the double amount a year later. However, BO success is what will differentiate all these movies!! lets wait and see whose BO success gets bigger!!

  • Prakhar: Since the right of Don 2 has not been sold yet so yes it could beat this amount but can you confirm that the BO record could be broken by Don 2 of Agneepath. If you can confirm, then bollywood should hire you to predict the future when it’s always said the Bollywood is an unpredictable place!!

  • hey guys it can b correct tht ek tha tiger wil fetch much higher thn agneepath…………… at the current level agneepath has the higgest deal…………its rocks……
    one advice for salmaan’s fan try to appreciate other actors also…..aur bodyguard toh khafi dhur hai 30 cr…..

  • salman agar bap hoga to bodyguard sirf 30 cr may kiu bika..salman sirf muslim ke liya bap hoga ..sab ka nahi
