Salman Khan is currently in the process of acquiring the rights to his old movies. Speculations are rife that this would be either for a channel or an Over The Top (OTT) platform.
According to a DC report, a source close to the actor said, “There is a buzz in the trade that Salman wants to start his own platform where he wants to showcase all his films till date.”
“Most of Salman’s films in recent times have him as the producer and hence he has the rights, but with earlier films, he needs to get the rights to showcase them.”
The actor is currently talking to producers and movie right holders of his previous films for the same. “Some of the films that Salman has acted in still belong to the producers and in some cases, the films are now with the buyers who acquired the movies’ lock, stock and barrel with perpetual rights.”
The actor is also including those movies in which he had cameos. “These also include some films in which he has done cameos and extended cameos as well. It can be recalled that even Shah Rukh Khan had taken the rights for quite a few films that he has worked in earlier,” added the source.
On the work front, the actor has Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat gearing up for release this year. Starring Katrina Kaif in the female lead, the shooting for the movie wrapped up recently.
He is also set to star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film. He will reunite with the director for a love story, 20 years after their film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Reports suggest that the two are already in talks and that the movie may go on floors by the second half of this year.
He will soon start shooting for Dabangg 3 as well.
