Ready SOLD for hefty price
Success of Wanted(2009) followed by big Dabangg(2010) just raised the bar of any Salman starrer, specially his forthcoming Ready (2011). The movie is the first big ticket Bollywood release post the long drawn out cricket season is being awaited by the trade and the junta. Hence the prices it has got from the various territories is huge.
A trade source says, ”Ready has been reportedly sold for
11.61 cr for Maharashtra excluding Mumbai city;
West Bengal territory for 2.25 cr;
Mysore 2 cr,
Nizam/Hyderabad for 2.25 Cr and overseas has fetched 9 cr the highest for a Salman film.”
[Total = 27.11 Crore]
Salman’s father Salim Khan has retained the distribution rights for CPCI and Rajasthan because he is one of the big players in this territory. It is being said that Wave Cinemas will exploit the Mumbai city distribution themselves. No big star cast will release at least for a fortnight after Ready, so the film gets a clear run.
