Sony acquire telecast rights of all Yash Chopra movies

Sony Entertainment Television has beaten Star TV and Zee TV to acquire multiple telecast rights of all of Yash Chopra’s movies for around Rs 15 crore. The rights will be for a period of five years and will be restricted to the Asian region. This will not include international telecast rights. The movies will include Mohabbatein and other Shahrukh Khan’s films like Dil To Pagal Hai and Darr.

Star TV and Zee TV had also put up a price for acquiring the rights. But Sony’s offer, sources said, was higher. Star TV had the telecast rights for some of Mr Chopra’s movies but this had expired.

Sony TV will start a three-month movie festival of Mr Chopra’s movies beginning this August. SetMax will air two of his movies every month. While Mohabbatein will be telecast on Sony TV in November, SetMax will air it in March.

Sony Entertainment Television also has the telecast rights to 23 Amitabh Bachchan movies. SetMax will be airing them in three consecutive months beginning this May. or Kaho Na Pyar Hai, Sony has two telecast rights for a period of one year. It will be first aired on Diwali day. The international telecast rights are also with Sony. Mission Kashmir, for which Sony has two telecast rights, will be aired in December.
