Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Fox Star India have announced a nine-film partnership. Both the production houses took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to announce the news and posted-
The Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox Star Studios, a joint venture between 20th Century Fox and STAR, has several South Indian and Hindi films on its CV so far, including last year's 'Bang Bang and Finding Fanny'. This year, it has failed to create magic at the box office with 'Khamoshiyan', 'Mr X' and 'Bombay Velvet' and now has 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani' as well as Salman Khan's 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' in the pipeline.
On the other hand, Dharma Productions has an impressive range of movies from blockbusters like 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' and 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani' to the acclaimed festival hit The 'Lunchbox' as well as both Agneepaths - the original 1990 film starring Amitabh Bachchan and the 2012 remake with Hrithik Roshan. This year, Dharma has the Hindi rights to SS Rajamouli's two-part Tamil-Telugu epic Baahubali, which Karan Johar is presenting and which is touted to be the most expensive film made in India. They also have 'Shaandaar' and 'Brothers' releasing in 2015.
