There have been reports all across the Indian media about Hrithik Roshan historic deal with a satellite channel for Rs. 550 crores which gives the channel rights to broadcast his next six films.
The report that first appeared in a tabloid in Mumbai quoted sources close to the development to announce, “The actor has signed a Rs 550-crore deal which takes off next year, for the satellite rights of his next six films.”
Understandably the report created ripples all across the print and electronic media and on websites.
As it turns out, this report is only partially true. The actor has not merely “signed a Rs 550 crore deal” but is actually going into partnership with the channel Star India for his forthcoming films.The partnership starts not “next year” as stated in the report but with the actor’s next film Mohenjo Daro which opens in August this year.
Also, Hrithik’s historic collaboration with Star India is for 5 films, and not 6 films as stated in the report.
Confirming this Hrithik Roshan states, “Yes, I have collaborated with Star. They are my partners on my next 5 movies.”
The partnership begins with Ashutosh Gowariker’s period film Mohenjo Daro then goes on to Hrithik’s home production Kaabil which Sanjay Gupta directs. Since Hrithik has not signed any other film at the moment, his partnership with Star India is at the moment valid for only two films.
