After acquiring the music rights of Salman Khan starrer Tubelight, Sony Music has now acquired the music rights to Imtiaz Ali’s tentatively titled movie ‘The Ring’. The film stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma – it is a romantic film. The two would be coming together for a movie after their blockbusters ‘Rab Ne Bana di Jodi’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. Produced by Imtiaz Ali and Gauri Khan, the film is expected to come out on August 11, 2017. Although the budget and other details of the film is not known, the figure at which Sony Music acquired the rights has been revealed. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Sony Music has bought Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka starrer’s music for Rs 15 crore as against ‘Tubelight’ music for Rs 20 crore.

The catch is – ‘Tubelight’ has only three situational songs in the movie and are provided by Pritam, while Shah Rukh Khan’s flick not only has more songs but is also doing well in the market. The music for SRK’s flick is also given by Pritam Chakraborty and Abhijit Vaghani.
