A huge deal seems to be cooking up between Shah Rukh Khan and Eros Entertainment. And the deal could sway the way the competition between Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and Shah Rukh Khan-Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale goes this Christmas when the two release simultaneously on December 18.
According to a well-placed source in the US, the meeting took place last month.
Says the source. “Kishore Lulla flew down to Los Angeles for the meeting with Shah Rukh Khan to discuss if Eros Entertainment could come on board for Dilwale, produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies and Rohit Shetty. Lulla discussed a potential collaboration on Dilwale. Since Eros is the co-producer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, a collaboration with Shah Rukh over Dilwale could sort out the issue of the simultaneously release date for the two films.”
While the details of the meeting are not known, we do know that Shah Rukh Khan spoke sharp business with Lulla.
Says the source, “Shah Rukh has, by far the sharpest business sense among all the Bollywood superstars. There is no way he would allow Eros to come into Dilwale at this late stage until the deal is to his advantage.”
A source from Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies confirmed the meeting between Khan and Lulla, but refused to divulge any more details.
