MUMBAI: There is no doubt that Salman Khan starrers garner a lot of attention right from the moment they’re announced. Salman Khan’s upcoming flick ‘Mental’ is produced by his brother Sohail Khan.
Although the film went on the floors just recently, the buzz around is that Sohail Khan is demanding a whopping sum of Rs 130 Crore for all India theatrical rights of ‘Mental’. Reportedly, Sohail has already been getting offers up to Rs 90 Crore for the film but given the ‘Dabangg’ star’s current dream-run, Sohail is in no mood to compromise.
Let’s take a look at the all India net Box Office Collections of Salman Khan’s last 5 films –
‘Dabangg’ collected approximately Rs 145 Crore
‘Ek Tha Tiger’ made around Rs 198 Crore
‘Bodyguard’ collected around Rs 151 Crore
‘Ready’ collected approximately Rs 125 Crore, and
‘Dabangg – 2’ earned nearly Rs 150 Crore
But, whether this prompts someone to give into Sohail Khan’s demands for Rs 130 Crore for ‘Mental’ remains to be seen, not to mention the film has been in news several times for the delays and glitches that it’s been facing. Looks like Sohail Khan is facing a tough time in getting things done his way, but we’re sure everything will work out just fine, after all it’s a Salman Khan film!
The Khan Brothers are currently in Dubai, busy shooting for the film. ‘Mental’ starring Salman Khan and Karishma Kotak, is looking at a 2013 October release. This will be the first time in five years that a Salman Khan film won’t release during Eid!
