Actor Salman Khan has signed the biggest- ever deal for a Bollywood star by inking a settlement worth 450- 500 crore with Star India Network.
The deal signed earlier this week is valid for five years. It gives the channel exclusive satellite rights to broadcast all films featuring Salman Khan that are released from January 2013 to December 2017.
“This is first of its kind contract signed by any actor in Indian showbiz. All the films starring Salman Khan will be premiered exclusively on Star channel,” Hemal Jhaveri, executive vice- president and general manager, Star Gold and Movies OK said.
“This is a mammoth and a complex deal, which has been chalked out considering Salman Khan’s box office success over the past few years,” added Jhaveri, who confirmed that the films will be broadcast on all entertainment channels of the group such as Star Plus, Star Gold, Life OK and Movies OK.
