Not many will know this, but barely five days after the release of arguably the worst film of Ram Gopal Varma's career, RAM GOPAL VARMA KI AAG, was a business deal struck for his next, last Friday's much awaited SARKAR RAJ. It was Jeetendra and Ekta Kapoor's Balaji that procured the rights of the three Bachchan starrer.

As per reputed trade and distribution sources, Ekta's maternal uncle, the well known filmmaker Ramesh Sippy, who looks after their distribution business, acquired the rights of the Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya starrer, SARKAR RAJ. Reportedly, Balaji paid anything between 38.5-40 crore for the deal.

With SARKAR RAJ having grossed around $ 550,000 (estimated) from just its first weekend in the US, Balaji must be hoping for good returns from India too. Balaji have already recovered 7-8 crore of their investment by selling the overseas rights of SARKAR RAJ to EROS International.
