Ajay Devgn
Business is becoming increasingly open and clear, so it’s easier to deal directly. I am securing the producer a higher value, so he benefits eventually, as they often depend on satellite rights to garner a substantial amount of the cost of production. But I am also ensuring a certain amount for myself. For the rest, like actors fees etc, all depends on the relationship between an actor and producer.

It should be noted that Star India already has satellite rights of Devgn’s 18 films including Gangajal, Golmaal Series, Zameen and Singham.
