While on Ready, here’s some inside information. Salman Khan is a 50% partner in production, obviously, because he gave a huge concession in his remuneration. A 40% stake in the film is held by T-Series. Anees Bazmee, the film’s director, has a 7.5% share, again because he charged a lower fee than what his market price was when he signed the film.
The balance 2.5% share is held by Nitin Manmohan. Why Nitin Manmohan, you are apt to ask? It’s because the rights of the original Telugu film (also titled Ready), of which Ready is a Hindi remake, were with Nitin. Incidentally, the Telugu Ready was also remade in Tamil. The Tamil version was titled Uttama Purushan.
