Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif starrer mega-budget upcoming film ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' is still unsold and producers are finding it hard to sell the movie on their terms because Hrithik- Barbara Mori's film ‘Kites' bombed at the box office.
Sources from the trade told a newspaper that the producers had approached two big corporate houses for the film, but they never reverted with positive answers and believed to have told that they could not commit big sum of amount on Hrithik Roshan now.
The buzz is that Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment wanted Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' to be sold along with Abhishek Bachchan-Kangna Ranaut ‘Game' for a whopping sum of Rs 100 crores.
But corporate houses were unwilling to bet on these two stars after the debacle of big -budget films ‘Kites' and Mani Ratnam's ‘Raavan'. They are not willing to pay this amount without going through every detail about the film and then even pruning the amount to reasonable level.
Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif starrer film has been directed by Zoya Akhtar and largely shot in Spain. The film has big canvas and even the expertise of a good director like Zoya, but corporates have been refusing to bite the bait.‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' also has Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol playing important roles in it.
The film has already created a buzz because Katrina Kaif kept herself busy for almost a month to shoot the film and did not attend birthday celebrations of herself and Salman Khan's. Yet, corporate buyers are not willing to shell that amount for the film.
The chances are that producers of the flicks will go for a reduced amount and may also increase the number of films from two to three to close the deal.
