Reliance Big Entertainment strikes a big deal with T-Series' Karzzzz
Bhushan Kumar's Karzzzz has been in the news ever since it was announced. For the first time ever, a remake had the blessings of the director and actor of the original classic Karz. Yes, Subhash Ghai and Rishi Kapoor were present at the Muhurat of Karzzzz which took place a few months back and the film took off in grand style.
Now, thanks to the strong production values and amazing music, Reliance Big Entertainment has acquired the world theatrical, internet and satellite rights of T-Series' Karzzzz. Interestingly, the film slated to be made at a high production value of Rs. 28 crores (approximately) is said to have already raked in the moolah for the makers with Reliance parting with Rs. 35 crore as a part of the deal. This could only be because of the marketing and music acumen of the company which has now ventured into film production with three diverse musicals that have brought to the fore directors like Satish Kaushik, John Mathew Mathan and Pooja Bhatt in three Himesh Reshammiya starrers.
Though the makers refuse to second the figure (confirmed by our sources), the fact that there is no denial pretty much sums up things. With the kind of pricing Bhushan Kumar has managed for this film, looks like this is just the beginning for this young and dynamic entrepreneur.
Karzzzz sees Himesh Reshammiya portraying the role which was played by Rishi Kapoor in the original classic and also stars Urmila Matondkar, Shweta Kumar, Raj Babbar, Danny Denzongpa, Gulshan Grover and Rohini Hattangadi in other stellar roles.
