40 crore via satellite rights for Akshay Kumar-Vipul Shah's HOLIDAY?
The winning combo of actor Akshay Kumar and director Vipul Amrutlal Shah is back with their next venture, HOLIDAY-A SOLDIER IS NEVER OFF DUTY.
While their last project, ACTION REPLAYY, may have disappointed at the ticket window, but it was a one off setback, and their hat trick of successes in the form of AANKHEN, WAQT-RACE AGAINST TIME and NAMASTEY LONDON just cannot be ignored. In fact, so sure is the trade and distribution circuit about the success of HOLIDAY (which sees Akshay Kumar back in his most loved action avatar), that the team is already getting excellent pre-release earnings and terms. Confused? Please read on...
As per reliable trade and distribution sources, the worldwide rights of HOLIDAY were procured by Reliance Entertainment for 90 crore. And if our sources are to be believed out of that, Reliance have already recovered 40 crore by way of satellite rights, 6 crore as audio rights and another 10 crore by way of overseas distribution and Indian video rights. It is quite obvious that the recovery of the remaining 36 crore will be a cake walk!
The much awaited A.R. Murugadoss directed Akshay-Sonakshi starrer, HOLIDAY-A SOLDIER IS NEVER OFF DUTY is all set to conquer the screens on 6th June.
