Shah Rukh Khan has been back in action this year after a long break. His action thriller film Pathaan achieved tremendous success at the box office and was celebrated across the nation. Now, the superstar has two other important and big films in the pipeline this year. They are Atlee Kumar’s action drama Jawan and Rajkumar Hirani‘s comedy drama Dunki.
Both these films are highly anticipated and have been creating a lot of buzz on the internet ever since they were announced. Now, recent reports suggest that both Jawan and Dunki have fetched record-breaking prices for their non-theatrical rights. The digital, music, and satellite rights of Jawan are sold for 250 crores, and Dunki’s rights have been sold for around 230 crores. This takes the combined amount to approximately 500 crore, which is staggering for non-theatrical rights and the highest ever for a feature film.
The source also stated that Jawan received a slightly higher price because it is being dubbed in Tamil and Telugu, while Dunki‘s rights are sold mainly in Hindi.
Jawan’s Trailer To Release Soon
The much-anticipated trailer of Jawan will be released in a week. Its trailer has been attached to the print of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 7. Jawan also stars Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, and Sanya Malhotra. It is slated to release theatrically on 7 September.
Dunki, on the other hand, is highly anticipated because it’s the first time Rajkumar Hirani and SRK are doing a project together. The film deals with the issue of illegal immigration and also stars Taapsee Pannu. It will hit the theatres during the Christmas weekend this year.
