Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Pays 90 Crores For Hindi Rights Of KGF2

In 2018 when  Ritesh Sidhwani  and Farhan Akhtar of  Excel Entertainment bought the  Hindi rights of  the Kannada hit KGF(Kolar Gold Fields)  little  did  they know that the  film will  turn out to be   a  virtual  gold field.

Sources say,  the  film made  35 times what the producers invested into this supposedly regional film. At that time  Excel had paid a pittance  for the Hindi rights. That  is  not  the  so with the sequel which is ready  for release. According to sources  the  Hindi rights  of KGF 2 have been  sold  to  Excel for  nearly 90+ crore  rupees.

According to  a  source very close  to the project, “When KGF was  made we  were  not even thinking of a Hindi version. It was  done at the last minute and  sold  to Excel for peanuts. Now things  are very different. The investment for the sequel is at least  7 times  more  than  the original. Of course Excel has had to pay  a lot more this time.Isn’t that  fair?”

Yup.
