If trade sources are to be believed, satellite rights for Akshay Kumar's latest blockbuster WELCOME are up for grabs for a figure as high as 20 crores.

Literally a goldmine waiting to be explored, WELCOME has turned out to be a huge success coming from 2007 end which has spilled over into 2008 as well. Such has been the film's success that anything coming after its release - RETURN OF HAUNMAN, SHOWBIZ, MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES, HALLA BOL and BOMBAY TO BANGKOK - has fared poorly at the box office.

Confirms Anees Bazmee, 'Yes, there are massive offers for satellite which stand between 17-20 crores. Even on home entertainment circuits, the film is quite hot and BIG music has bought the rights at an astronomical price. Even the trade has acknowledged the fact that WELCOME stands to be the biggest ever success for an Indian film in the comedy genre.'

Meanwhile WELCOME has grossed an enormous 135 crores gross worldwide in 28 days from ticket sales only.
