Shahid Kapoor’s 100-Crore Deal With Netflix Is A niHoax

A  report on a sensation-mongering portal claims Shahid Kapoor has signed  a 100-crore rupee  deal with Netflix  for multiple films and series.

 However at least two reliable sources  from Netflix that I contacted denied  this  report calling it a  “complete hoax.”

“Netflix has struck no such deal with Shahid Kapoor. The amount mentioned(100 crores) is  preposterous  for any star , no matter how big.And Shahid is not even in  the  Shah Rukh-Akshay-Salman-Aamir league. His star stature cannot justify that  kind of money,” says  the well-informed source. Adding, “We don’t know  where this information comes  from, certainly not from anyone at Netflix.”

A  source from Netflix further adds, “Our platform wants  to  break the Bollywood star system.  Not  add to it. We  firmly believe the  director is the star of the show,be it the  big  or the small screen.We’ve introduced  four new  directors this year. There are many  more.As  for wooing the stars, we  don’t see  the point in that.”

Amazon  Prime  Video apparently sees  plenty of  wisdom  in  signing  A-listers from Bollywood for multiple-film deals. They are in the process of  wooing several stars including Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan.
