Having signed a deal with Fox Star Studios to acquire the music rights of all their films, including Bombay Velvet, Bang Bang and many more, Zee Music has now made a similar deal with Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani's joint venture Excel Entertainment. Zee Music has bought the music rights of all the films made by Excel Entertainment for a huge undisclosed amount.
Excel Entertainment's films include biggies like Shah Rukh Khan's Raees, Katrina Kaif-Sidharth Malhotra's Kal Jisne Dekha and Farhan Akhtar's Rock On 2. Earlier, the music rights of films by Excel were with Zee's rival company T-Series.
Zee Music India also has the music rights of Salman Khan's big Diwali release, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
