Salman Khan’s upcoming Diwali release, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which marks the collaboration of director Sooraj Barjatya and the actor after 16 years (they last worked together on Hum Saath Saath Hain in 1999), is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Now, we have been told that the music rights of the movie have apparently been sold to a popular music label for a whopping Rs 17 crore.

An insider says, “As Salman and Sooraj are coming together after many years, a lot is riding on this film. While it’s common for the music rights of a star’s movie to be sold for a high price, Rs 17 crore is a huge sum even by industry standards.”

The source adds that this may be one of the biggest music deals the industry has ever witnessed. “Whenever Salman and Sooraj have collaborated in the past, the soundtracks of their films have been hits. Be it Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994) or Hum Saath Saath Hain, the albums have done really well. So, the makers were very particular about the music of their new film,” says the source.

Last year, we had reported that on Salman’s recommendation, music director Himesh Reshammiya was roped in to compose music for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Himesh had said, “It will be my first collaboration with the Barjatyas. I will compose nine romantic tracks for the movie. A project like this gives scope to a music composer to experiment. I will go back to my roots, since the songs will be on traditional lines.”

When contacted, the spokesperson of the film confirmed the news.
