As flicks like Kites and Raavan, which were high on star quotient, failed to do well at the expectant box office, all eyes are now on King Khan. A whopping amount of Rs 300 crore is riding on his shoulders!

The buzz in the trade is that Reliance Big Pictures has bought the rights of SRK's Don 2 from Excel Entertainment for Rs 125 crore, which is about Rs 25 crore more than what they purchased Kites for.

SRKThere is also talk in the industry of Eros International buying Shah Rukh’s home-production Ra.One for a whopping Rs 175 crore.

A leading distributor says, “Shah Rukh rocks. He is still one of the top three stars in this country. His film guarantees good returns. Yes, Reliance Big Pictures has bought Don 2 for an amount which is definitely more than Rs 100 crore. But I think that Shah Rukh’s deal with Eros International on Ra.One could be a funding proposal, which implies that Shah Rukh can still sell the film to other buyers.”

Phew! That's a lot of money riding on one man, imagine the pressure!
