In a major deal, a satellite channel had bought rights of Shah Rukh Khan’s 22 old films as a part of a multi-crore deal.
The list includes Swades, Om Shanti Om, Dilwale, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, Chennai Express, Happy New Year and Dear Zindagi among others. “It is one of the biggest deals in Bollywood. The price we are hearing is unheard of because some of them are old films as well like Paheli, Billu, Chamatkaar, Anjaam, Ram Jaane, etc. But it is one of the biggest deals in recent times for a satellite channel,” says a trade analyst.
The actor commands a hefty price in the satellite market as this deal reveals. A source says, “His films are watched on television and they command healthy TRPs. The channel has paid a hefty price for the deal,”
