After Salman Khan, television network Star Gold has signed a big deal with another superstar of Bollywood. Star network has reportedly signed a six-film deal with Hrithik Roshan.
The satellite rights of Hrithik's next six films, including Sanjay Gupta's directorial film "Kaabil," have been sold to the leading network. The satellite rights of "Kaabil" has been sold for Rs 45 crore and the price for the rest of the films is likely to be in the same range, Spotboye.com reports. However, it is not confirmed whether Hrithik's "Mohenjo Daro" has been included in the deal or not.
This is the third big deal Star networks has signed with a Bollywood star. Last week, there were reports that Varun Dhawan has signed a Rs 300 crore deal with the same network. "@Varun_dvn signs a 300cr deal with a leading channel, following @BeingSalmanKhan not only in #Judwa2 but here too," trade analyst Girish Johar tweeted.
The satellite rights of all his forthcoming films, except for "Judwaa 2," have been sold to Star network. "All of Varun's films except Sajid Nadiadwala's Judwa 2's satellite rights have been sold. While Varun has cashed on his popularity, the leading television network hasn't revised their satellite deal with Ajay Devgn," Absolute India News quoted a source as saying.
Earlier, the network signed a whopping Rs 1000 crore deal with superstar Salman. The actor's last two films, "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo," premiered on Star Gold and both the films topped the TRP chart. In fact, "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" recorded the highest TRP, shattering the previous records created by "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Baahubali - The Beginning."
