Colors pays Rs.4.5 crore to screen 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani'

Television channel Colors seems to be on a eyeball-grabbing spree. After premiering the big-budget underwater caper “Blue”, it has reportedly acquired the first-satellite screening rights of this year’s money-spinner “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” as their yearender whammy.

The channel is learnt to have paid a whopping Rs.4.5 crores for it.

“With ‘Blue’ and ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ we wanted to enter the feature film slots with a bang. So far we had desisted from showing feature films,” said a source from the channel.

“Once we decided to show films, we had to grab eyeballs immediately. And to do so we needed films that would elicit instant reaction. Having got that with two new biggies, we’ll now settle down to telecast less recent films,” added the source.

Unlike “Blue” which sank without a trace at the box office after its theatrical release Oct 16, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” is a hit.

But Ramesh Taurani, producer of “Ajab…”, says it won’t affect the film’s collection at the ticket window.

“The satellite premiere of ‘Ajab…’ is happening at December end which is two months after its theatrical release. The theatrical business nowadays is for four weeks, however successful the film,” Taurani told IANS.
