NEW DELHI: Bollwood’s Dabangg actor Salman Khan, who has given back to backs hits including ‘Sultan’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, has reportedly signed a deal amounting to Rs 1000 crores with a leading channel for the satellite rights of his films.
Pinkvilla quoted a source, as saying, “Today, stars are raking in the moolah by signing multi-crore deals with channels willing to pay the price. While Ajay Devgn had signed a deal of`400 crore for 10 films with the same channel, at the time, Salman had signed the same for `500 crore starting with Bodyguard — so he was getting paid `50 crore per film then.”
“Varun Dhawan recently inked a deal with a channel where he gets paid `300 crore for 10 films of his. But with Salman’s past few releases all being blockbusters, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, for example — channels are willing to pay him triple the amount to air his films and have his presence grace their shows, be it reality shows or sports-based programmes. He recently re-negotiated his earlier contract with the same channel,” the insider added.
Also, actor Hrithik Roshan has reportedly signed a deal worth approximately Rs. 550 crores for his next six films.
Varun Dhawan also signed Rs.300 crore deal with a leading channel for his movies except for ‘Judwaa 2’.
