Buzz in the industry suggests that the satellite rights of the Yash Raj Film’s presentation have been lapped up by Sony TV for a whopping Rs. 75 crore. It’s really a big amount for satellite rights but given that the Dhoom franchise is hit at the box office and also given that the audience curiosity has hit a crest due to the presence of Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif in the film, the number crunchers at Sony TV apparently think Rs 75 crore could be par for the course.
The YRF spokesperson, however, has refused to confirm the news.
"We wouldn't like to comment on any speculation," the spokesperson said.
Dhoom 3 is slated for a Christmas release this year. The film has Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra reprising their roles as the hardy cop and his happy-go-lucky sidekick.
The previous two installments were directed by Sanjay Gadhavi. The third part, however, is being directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who previously directed Tashan for YRF.
