Farah Khan and husband Shirish Kunder's film Tees Maar Khan starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif has reportedly been lapped up by UTV for Rs 55 crore. The production house has acquired worldwide theatrical rights along with some other rights of the film.
According to a media report, the company has struck a fair deal by getting not only worldwide theatrical rights but also satellite rights and home video rights of the film. However, music rights were not included in the deal.
UTV will surely benefit with this deal even if the movie does not do a whopping theatrical business in India. And as believed such a deal is rare in Bollywood because major films are normally acquired at high prices that leave little chance for big profits.
‘Tees Maar Khan', however, is almost sure to set the cash registers ringing given the fact that it's slated to release during Christmas this year. Farah has stopped working on other projects for now and is entirely concentrating on ‘Tees Maar Khan' which will be shot in exotic foreign locales. Not only that, Akshay has got a stylish makeover for the film, and as learnt, Katrina will also go for a la mode, sexy outfits for this commercial film.
