Distribution rights of Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali’s ‘The Ring’ sold for Rs. 125 crore?

Since the time it started rolling, Imtiaz Ali’s next film has been making headlines. After all, it marks the ace filmmaker’s first ever association with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Also starring Anushka Sharma, the film was being shot amid the beautiful locations of Prague, Amsterdam and Budapest. Albeit it was being called ‘The Ring’ initially, we heard the film would be titled ‘Rehnuma’.

And, the latest reports suggest that the film’s distribution rights have been sold in lieu of a whopping amount of Rs. 125 crore. Narendra Hirawat of NH Studioz has purchased the rights, reports Bollywood Hungama.

Talking to the portal, Hirawat said, “Yes I have acquired the All India and overseas distribution rights of ‘The Ring’, but I will not comment on the cost of the same.”

That’s quite a lot of money. Although we are not surprised. Another superstar Salman Khan added to the craze when he released the first still from the sets.

The film will tentatively release on 11th August, 2017.
