IQBAL writer sells his next for 2 crore?

Shreyas Talpade's debut film, IQBAL, brilliantly directed by Nagesh Kukunoor and supported by Subhash Ghai's Mukta Arts, also had an unsung hero in form of its script writer, Vipul K. Rawal. Despite some brilliant performances by Naseerudddin Shah and Shreyas, and the Nagesh-Subhash factor not withstanding, it was the story of IQBAL that turned out to be the king, one of the biggest factor behind the success of the film.
However, not many will know that before IQBAL happened, Rawal was a call centre employee, who in his free time wrote stories. But ever since IQBAL hit the bull's eye, Rawal has seen a reversal in fortunes. Proving the quote by many wise trade experts that the script is the king, there is news that Vipul K. Rawal has sold his next script for 2 crore, an unheard of price in the film industry. Looks like whoever bought the script must have been mighty impressed with the script of IQBAL. Though Rawal does not confirm or contradict the above figure, he accepts that he can only concentrate on being creative if he is financially secure.
Right said Vipul, financial security does lead to creativity and let's see whether you are able to better your first with your (reported) 2 crore script!
