Three IdiotsFirst it was Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name is Khan , which Fox Star bagged for Rs 100 crore. Not sure about the exact details yet but the deal is confirmed. And now the exclusive dope on Aamir Khan’s next – we have got to know that Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots (Three Idiots) have been bagged by Studio 18 for Rs 85 cr! Woohoo! 3 Idiots is directed by Raj Kumar Hirani, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi.

Except Music, Studio18 has got all the rights of 3 Idiots (Three Idiots) for Rs 85 crore. Music rights is with T-Series. So, if we add 10-15 cr more for music rights, it will be equal to 95-100 crore. Shah Rukh Khan & Aamir Khan on par! Fox Star and Sony was also interestd in it. But two factors contributed towards Studio18 bagging the rights. Aamir Khan’s personal and professional equation with Studio18.

Aamir is close to Vandana Malik, head of Studio18, whose daughter Avantika Malik is Imran Khan’s girlfriend. And professionally Aamir was happy with the box office result of Ghajini, which was distributed by Studio 18. Ghajini was sold for Rs 90 cr. And so Aamir made sure that Studio18 gets the preference for 3 Idiots.

3 Idiots will release on the last week of december as the date has proved lucky for Aamir Khan since last two years. First it was Taare Zameen Par, then Ghajini and now Aamir wants to stick to the same date. So, come what may, 3 Idiots will release on the last friday (25th december) of the year.

    the executive director who is the GF Mother – in- no law of Imran Khan is taking the company down for sure

  2. Where r u Kamineys? says:

    pls read again..Vandana Malik is not the HEAD of the headless Studio 18…its run by a bunch of executives who quit SAHARA ONE and joined the Indian Films aka Studio 18 in dozens…

    ^Ha ha sounds like some Aamir hater who cannot digest the fact that an AK film goes beyond monetary value. Cannot wait for this film. But this is Aamir’s second film being distributed by Studio 18, right? TZP was bought and distributed by UTV who has also bought Delhi Belly. So, I don’t think Aamir goes for relationship when his films are concerned no matter whose daughter his nephew is dating. Thanks for the info though 🙂 I love this blog. Hoping to comment here more often.

    @whererukamineys – if kambakkht ishq can get 10-12 for music plus digital rights, why cant 3 Idiots. Dsign wise, sandeep bhargava is the head but then whatever madam says, its strictly followed. afterall her brother raghav behl is d big bro of the whole network.

    @sonal – thnx. do comment. no, we r not aamir hater. TZP was PVR, if m not wrong. And UTV is co-producing Delhi belly along with Aamir.

    I didn’t call you guys Aamir hater lol Was referring to whoever made the comments above me. I know PVR co produced TZP just like they did Jaane Tu. Maybe they distributed in Indian market but according to the utv website they had the overseas market of TZP. http://www.utvnet.com/mp_distribution.htm So ya, my point being he is as close to Vandana Malik as he is to any other head like Ajay Bijli (of PVR) and Rony Screwala of UTV.
