Saregama India is all set to acquire the music rights of five films to be made by ace film-maker Yash Chopra. According to sources, the company has picked up the music rights for three of these films for a total cost of about Rs. 15 crore. We have already acquired the music rights for three films, said Saregama India executive director Harish Dayani. Dayani was however, unwilling to divulge the acquisition costs.
The music for the first of these films will be released in mid this year. The movie, which is tentatively titled Saathiya, will be produced by Mani Ratnam, and the world rights will be held by Yash Chopra. The world rights generally comprise the rights for distribution, music and satellite television. The music for the other two films will be released later next year, said Dayani.
