The highly anticipated film, Jawan, has been creating a buzz in recent times, making it unsurprising that its music rights would command a high price. However, contrary to reports suggesting a sale of Rs. 36 crore, insiders have revealed that the rights were actually sold in the range of Rs. 25-30 crore. According to a source, big-budget entertainers typically earn around Rs. 20-25 crore from music rights, making this unprecedented deal even more remarkable.
The source dismissed the claims of a Rs. 36 crore sale as baseless, emphasizing that such an exorbitant amount for music rights alone is highly unlikely. The competition for these rights was fierce, with major players vying for the deal. Ultimately, T-Series emerged as the winner with their astronomical bid, securing the coveted music rights for Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan. Shah Rukh Khan
