Though a few Eids have seen setbacks in the form of KYON KI and JAAN-E-MANN (along with Akshay Kumar), but it appears that Salman Khan is all ready to set the score right this time around with his upcoming, WANTED. And here are a few pointers to that.
News from reliable trade sources is that WANTED is being booked on fantastic minimum guarantees (MG) by different theatres. Santosh Cinema, Hyderabad has booked the Salman Khan starrer on an MG of Rs. 15,01,000 plus an advance of Rs. 5 lakhs.
At Minakshi, Aligarh (U.P.), the film has got an MG of Rs. 9 lakhs. Point to be noted is that from the same theatre the distributor's share of the All Time Blockbuster GHAJINI was Rs. 7.60 lakhs.
Giriraj, Navsari (Gujarat) has booked the film on an MG of Rs.6.11 lakhs. The distributor's share for GHAJINI from the Navsari cinema was Rs. 5.40 lakhs.
It is becoming clearer that the exhibitors and distributors are really excited about WANTED, which is getting hotter with each passing day and that it might certainly be Salman Khan's comeback film, after a series of setbacks.
While on WANTED, after tasting good Overseas success with LOVE AAJ KAL and also KAMBAKKHT ISHQ, EROS International have now picked up the Overseas rights of the BSK Entertainment venture as well.
