Generally music rights in Bollywood are sold on an outright basis and in perpetuity. But the music rights of last year’s musical blockbuster, Dabangg, were sold to T-Series by producer Arbaaz Khan on a MG (minimum guarantee) basis, which entitles the producer to have a share in profits after the MG paid by music label is recovered.
Since the music of ‘Dabangg’ sold like hot cakes, Arbaaz Khan is now entitled to his share in revenues from T-Series. He is yet to be paid his share though. The Salman Khan starrer, ‘Dabangg’, released last year, had blockbuster music which included the super-hit song Munni badnam hui and also other popular numbers like, Tere mast mast do nain and Hud hud Dabangg.
So while the public may tend to believe that Arbaaz Khan is over and done with Dabangg, that is not so because Arbaaz may soon receive a big, fat cheque from T-Series.
