Salman, on the behest of his father Salim Khan, agreed in June to reimburse the losses suffered for Tubelight.
Tubelight’s Maharashtra distributor, Shreyans Hirawat of NH Studioz, can heave a sigh of relief. On Wednesday, Salman Khan called the distributor to compensate for the losses suffered at the box office over Tubelight.
Salman, on the behest of his father Salim Khan, agreed in June to reimburse the losses suffered for Tubelight. The reimbursement finally happened on Wednesday.
A source close to the development said, “Salman had promised to return his distributor’s money by the end of July. However, he was busy shooting abroad for Tiger Zinda Hai. Now that he’s back in Mumbai, he has agreed to return Rs 32.5 crores to the distributors. This is half of the total losses suffered by distributors over Tubelight.”
Interestingly, the same distributor, Shreyans, has suffered losses of around Rs 50 crores on the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal. The buzz is Shah Rukh will follow Salman’s footsteps and compensate for the losses.
