Kaabil and Raees are set to clash at the box office. Both films will release on 26th Januray 2017. The promos of Kaabil were released few days back. Now according to the latest reports, domestic and overseas rights have been sold for Rs 65 crore months before its release.
“I can comment on the figure for distribution rights and what you hear is correct. I don’t want to burden my distributors and hence Indian theatrical rights have been sold to them for Rs. 50 crore and overseas for Rs. 15 crore,” director Rakesh Roshan said in an interview to Bollywood Hungama.
The report further mentioned that when it came to selling films for distribution, both Roshan and Hrithik kept it in check so that everyone involved with their film project makes a good profit. Kaabil will start generating profits as soon as it crosses Rs 100 crore at the Indian box office.
The same kind of structure has been planned for overseas as well. Kaabil’s overseas rights have been sold for Rs 15 crore.
