Back-end Deals In The Fore

While back-end deals are popular in Hollywood, Bollywood is taking up the trend when it comes to mega-budget films. It’s also the way the Khans prefer to go with. Salman Khan normally asks for an Rs 50-crore fee and half of the profit as he is also the producer of the film.

In addition to that, he is the one who owns the satellite right and gets a deal with the channel. Shah Rukh Khan goes in the same way while Aamir Khan only takes the profits to share to make his films financially viable.
