2023.06.07 16:33 RMD010 Curious Case of SRK & his Business Ventures Journey (Part-2)
I thought I covered basically everything that’s associated with SRK & his business Interests, however I seemed to have overlooked upon few details about his businesses and other avenues of his earnings as well in a big way.submitted by RMD010 to BollyBlindsNGossip [link] [comments]
Here’s the breakdown of his other Business Investments/Earnings:
I failed to find many supporting materials on this but based on a interview clip which I saw many years back and a supporting gossip post, I’m writing a gist of it. SRK actually launched his own website named www.SRKworld.com, a complete entertainment portal back in November 2000.
The company that owned and operated the portal was Aryan Informatics which was named after SRK’s son. Apart from SRK, Juhi was the other investor in Aryan Informatics.
SRK wanted to give updates on the website to his fans about his movies/promotions/events/fan interactions. Fans can also buy some of the merchandise, etc.
But due to occurrence of dotcom bubble in 2000 after few months of website launch and portal’s association with Bharat Shah, the website as well as the company viz. Aryan Informatics was sold to B4U, a leading Bollywood based entertainment TV Network.
Earning from the Movies:
In 2014, SRK charged about 30-40 Cr for starring in a film. But in recent years, SRK has started to partake in profits instead of taking any actor fees upfront. For his recent release Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan didn’t charge any fees for the movie and yet took home a lion's share from the earnings. Actor reportedly had a deal of 60% profit sharing as his remuneration from the movie. Since Pathaan was made on a budget of 270 Cr and makers earned a total profit of Rs 333 Crore, SRK was paid 200 Cr as his share.
SRK's recent release Pathaan is currently India's biggest blockbuster and Bollywood's second highest grosser of all-time.
Not many people know about this but back in 2016, Netflix announced the mega deal with SRK a day after Amazon Prime Video’s launch in India. Amazon has stitched multiple deals with Indian studios including Dharma Productions, Vishesh Films, and T-Series on similar lines.
Deal with SRK grants Netflix global streaming rights to the films in Red Chillies’ library, as well as any new movies from the production house that are slated for theatrical release within the next three years. Khan will also develop original content for the platform.
Transactional details about streaming rights were not shared with media outlets.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
We did go over who all know who all are the co-owners in this team. But I missed on sharing the shareholding pattern of the KKR co-owners:
SRK holds 55% of the team ownership & Jay Mehta/Juhi hold remaining 45% stake.
The KKR Shareholding pattern changed quite a bit over the years.
Knight Riders Sports Pvt Ltd, which runs KKR, had following shareholding pattern:
2008- Red Chillies Entertainment Pvt Ltd(RCEPL) had 9900 & Gauri 100 shares
2009- New shares were issued at Rs 10 per share price to RCEPL- 110,00,000 equity shares
Sea Islands Investment Ltd - 50,00,000 equity shares
Juhi Chawla Mehta - 40,00,000 equity shares
KKR Co-owners at an Airport
2010- JCM sold to SIIL(Mauritius based company owned by Jay Mehta) about 40L shares at Rs 10 per share price.
2011 - ED found new shares allotment & sale unfair. Thus, transaction was subject to third-party auditing.
Auditors told KRSPL that price should have been 70-86 per share(for issue of 50L shares of KRSPL to SIIL) & sale of 40L shares from JCM to SIIL should've been 83-99 per share. As per CCI guidelines, 86 per share value was evaluated.
KKR’s Operations Snapshot:
Knight Riders Sports's operating revenues range is INR 100 Cr - 500 Cr for the financial year ending on 31 March, 2022. It's EBITDA has increased by 63.97 % over the previous year. At the same time, it's book net worth has increased by 20.70 %.
KKR’s Revenue Model:
KKR has been the first IPL team to turn profitable, they broke even in March 2012. They have emphasized on scaling up the brand merchandising and also build an official fan base on the Manchester United Model.
Currently KKR, third most successful IPL team, are the second-richest IPL team in the league with a net worth value of INR 740 crore. They are only behind Mumbai Indians (MI), who have a net value of INR 803 crore.
UK T20 Team[The Hundred]:
Even though there is no update on which particular team Knight Rider’s group of after. I’m certain they are most likely eyeing London Spirit. Venky implies that he might want to change the name of the Hundred team. SRK also has a winter holiday home in London from many years. He visits UK with his family & friends around December end, every year. His UK t20 team has to be London Spirit.
In fact, Lords cricket stadium [home ground of London Spirit] is about 1.5 miles from his London Mansion based in Park Lane, next to Hyde Park.
Though SRK has been signed up as brand ambassador, there are speculations that he also holds an undisclosed stake in Byju’s. Just like his investment in KidZania India, we don't know how much amount is invested. He’s definitely holding a minority stake.
A Mexican edutainment brand's first project in Mumbai cost around Rs 100 crore and was launched in June 2013 at R City Mall in Mumbai’s Ghatkopar area. The centre is spread over more than 70,000 square feet.
Another KidZania park is located at the Entertainment City in Noida with a standalone structure across three levels and 97,000sq.ft. Apart from Mumbai & Delhi-NCR, third park in Bengaluru will be opened soon.
SRK’s actual investment in KidZania India is unknown but he holds about 26% stake.

Endorsement Deals (Advertisements):
SRK started his endorsement journey back in 1988, when he signed up for Liberty Shoes since then he never looked back. After his TV stint won him recognition, SRK landed in Mumbai. One of his first assignments was an ad for Tata Tea. Interestingly, Khan returned to the same brand in 2013 with the Chhoti si shuruaat campaign for Tata Tea.
SRK is known to stick to quality brands for the longest time: his association with Hyundai has been about 25 years. He’s is often referred to as one of first employees of Hyundai India.
SRK’s endorsement associations with brands include Liberty, Hyundai, Byju's, Big Basket, Pepsi, Frooti, Whirlpool, Nokia, Dish TV, LUX, Denver, Airtel, Royal Stag, Sunfeast, Pan Vilas, Kent, Mitsbushi Air Conditioners, Goibibo, LML, Cinthol, Videocon, PharmEasy, Nerolac, DHFL, D'decor, Pepsodent, Jet Airways, Gitanjali Jewels, Colgate Palmolive, Signature, Sprite, Tata Tea, ICICI Bank, Streax, Omega, Hewlett-Packard, Hero Punch Power, Reliance Jio, Tag Huer, Belmonte, Mayur Suitings, Top Ramen, Bagpiper, Godrej, Emami and many more.
SRK's recent brand endorsement deals
SRK's endorsement deal with brands such as Pan Vilas(they paid 20Cr back in 2014) was the biggest celeb endorsement deal of the time.
In the past, SRK might have been available for big national/regional brands but from past few years he's been eyeing foreign endorsement deals such as Dubai Tourism, Netflix, LG, Cadbury, FoodPanda, Burjeel Holdings, Disney+ Hotstar, Coca Cola(Thumbs Up), etc.
SRK's been brand ambassador for over 50 brands throughout his ad campaigns career. He said because of his earnings from ads and weddings, he was able to upscale his movie's production and execute the script in the manner it deserved. He charges around 4-10 Cr per day for Ads.
Why Brands prefer SRK?
According to a TAM report, he adds over 3% share of volume on TV with average visibility of 4 hours per day across all TV Channels. Based on another report, he rakes up to 6% share of television advertisement market.
SRK's been a pioneer and gold standard of brand endorsements. Thats why even esteemed global brands like Tag Huer have signed him up as brand ambassador for over a decade now. Recently, his son's luxury streetwear brand D'Yavol X was sold-out within hours even though the prices were high.
Forbes India 2013 Cover emphasizing on Brand SRK
Director of Hasee Toh Phasee and ad filmmaker Vinil Mathew thinks SRK’s presence ensures maximum exposure. He says, “Shah Rukh Khan is the number one actor in the country. Any brand that wants to project itself as the number one product for its target group would want to associate with SRK. With him you also send across the message that you are the best just like him. It’s the best way to reach across the globe as well as to smaller towns. With him on board a brand wins the battle of perception.”
A Still from SRK's movie Om Shanti Om(2007), where both SRK & Shreyas argue in front of a huge Tag Heuer Billboard.

Performing Dance/Skits at the Weddings:
SRK earns a ton of money from heartthrob performances at weddings too. Various sources report that an SRK performance in the weddings range from Rs 4 to 8 crore. SRK is pretty picky due to his packed schedule and prefers to only accept opportunities from people he knows i.e. famous billionaire businessmen and celebrities.
SRK reportedly receives 250 event invitations in 2012, but only attended 10, while in 2013, he gave a 30-minute performance at a wedding at Dubai’s Madinat Jumeirah hotel for US$1 million.
SRK’s future business interests could be opening of restaurants and possibly foray into other sports like hockey, football, etc. Also, there is possibility of Knight Riders owning franchises in WIPL(for Kolkata) & Saudia Arabia once the T20 league is found and there’s sponsorship/broadcasting deal is in place. Also, there are chances of opening a fashion brand including clothing & cosmetics division with Suhana as face and manager.

Here are our top 10 picks:
NUMBER 10: Roman Forum & Palatine Hill The Roman Forum developed gradually over many centuries from what was a swampy lake collecting water from the surrounding hills. The forum was the center of public life in ancient Rome. Located next to the Colosseum and surrounded by government facilities and other important buildings – it was the venue of major public events such as elections, criminal trials, processions, or public speeches. We all probably heard about the legend that says Rome was founded by Romulus, who killed his twin brother Remus after the two of them have been raised by a she-wolf. Romulus is supposed to be buried under the Roman Forum. After the fall of the Empire, the Forum was neglected. It was used as a meadow for livestock and got the nickname Campo Vaccino, meaning Cow Field. The site was first excavated in the 18th century and is now an enormous open-air museum featuring relatively well-preserved ruins of old buildings. If you don't have time to visit the area, you can see a big part of the forum from the public street above. Don’t skip Foro di Traiano and other interesting buildings just across the street. Located above Roman Forum, you will find Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills of ancient Rome. The settlements on Palatine Hill date back as far as the 10th century BC. Today you can visit an impressive collection of archaeological sites from different eras of ancient Rome. According to a legend, the she-wolf that took care of Romulus and Remus lived here. Don't skip impressive views of the entire Roman Forum from terrace on Palatine Hill.
NUMBER 9: Colosseum Located right next to the Roman Forum, you will find Colosseum – the largest amphitheater ever built. Construction of this remarkable structure was completed in the year 80 and was made using stone and concrete to demonstrate Roman building techniques to the entire world. The amphitheater was a gift to the people of Rome by the Flavian Dynasty to gain their popularity. In fact, for that reason, the emperors organized significant events in the Colosseum, and they were free to attend, and sometimes even free food for the visitors was provided. Colosseum was used for gladiatorial combats, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, as a stage for theatrical performances, and other public spectacles. While the structure still stands earthquakes damaged it over the years.
NUMBER 8: Altare Della Patria Altar of the Fatherland or Altare Della Patria in Italian is a large monument built on top of a part of Capitoline Hill. The monument was built in honor of the first king of unified Italy, Victor Emanuel II, and is, to this day, actually the largest monument in Rome. The construction began in 1885, but the monument was not completed for another 50 years. The construction of Il Vittoriano, as it is also called, was controversial because it included destroying a large part of Capitoline Hill's Medieval neighborhood. You can climb the monument, see the tomb of the unknown soldier, visit the museum of Italian Unification, and complete your tour by visiting an impressive terrace with amazing views of Rome.
NUMBER 7: Villa Borghese Gardens Villa Borghese is a large public park comprising several buildings, villas, museums, a zoo, and other attractions. The park is located close above Piazza Del Popolo, one of Rome's main squares. The garden was created in 1605 from a former vineyard. In the 19th century, the park was designed to its current form and was purchased by the city of Rome for public use. Terrazza del Pincio, located at the south of the park, offers one of the best panoramic views of Rome. Villa Borghese offers an array of activities: you can rent a boat on one of the lakes in the park and row around the inspiring Temple of Asclepius, visit the Waterclock at Pincio, or stop at one of the open-air restaurants and cafes. Terrazza Viale del Belvedere, situated close to Casina Valadier, offers another beautiful view of the city. Don't skip other impressive gardens and parks in Rome.

NUMBER 6: Piazza Navona and the underground ruins of the Circus Agonalis Piazza Navona is a Baroque square from the late 15th century that features several impressive statues and fountains from Baroque architecture. The square was built in the 1st century on a former Dominitian's stadium, now, the ruins are a part of the Unesco World Heritage. The stadium was used for athletics competitions known as "Circus Agonalis" or the competition arena. You can still recognize the square's unique shape and visit the ruins of the stadium 4.5 meters (15 ft.) under Piazza Navona. Later in history, the square turned into a lake during the summer to stage famous naval battles. There are even some legends about ghosts who wander around the square.
NUMBER 5: Trevi Fountain and underground labyrinths Stretching 86 feet or 26 meters in the air, Trevi Fountain is one of the most famous fountains in the world. The fountain was built on the façade of a palace in 1751. The water for the fountain was delivered from Acuqa Vergine, one of Rome's aqueducts, and was considered the purest water you can drink in Rome. The legend says that whoever drinks the water from the fountain or throws a coin in it will return to Rome. By the way, nearly 700,000 euros worth of coins are tossed into Trevi Fountain each year. Don't skip the remains of a Roman house and aqueduct. Vicus Caprarius located just around the corner of the Trevi Fountain, is a system of underground labyrinths from the Roman Times, offering insight into ancient Rome's life, engineering, and ingenuity. It was a part of the complex Virgin Aqueduct that supplied potable water to the city, including Trevi Fountain.
NUMBER 4: Spanish Steps Spanish Steps are a colossal stairway of 135 steps connecting the Spanish Embassy with the Trinità dei Monti church. The steps were built in the 18th century by a French diplomat and took only two years to complete. As the widest stairway in Europe, Spanish Steps quickly gained recognition and eventually became one of the main Roman attractions. According to the tradition, sometime during the spring, part of the steps are decorated with flowers, making an extraordinary sight. At the bottom of the Spanish Steps, there is Piazza di Spagna with the famous Fontana della Barcaccia, dating back to the early Baroque period. Check our Rome 4K walking tour with closed captions to get the full experience, including bohemian Trastevere, and other major sights and hidden gems. The link is in the description.
NUMBER 3: Pantheon Pantheon is a former Roman temple constructed in the second century AD by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. In 609, Pantheon was given to the pope and was converted into a church. Pantheon is the best-preserved ancient Roman monument. Its impressive concrete dome features an oculus in the center which serves as the primary source of natural light. Since there is no glass covering the oculus when it rains, the floor gets wet. Still, because of an ingenious system of 22 well-hidden holes, the water quickly drains away.
NUMBER 2: Baths of Caracalla Bathing was a part of daily activities in Roman culture, and baths were the central part of Roman urban architecture. The impressive and vast complex of the Baths of Caracalla, which is now only the ruins, was built between 212 and 216 by the Roman Emperor Caracalla to gain popularity. People of different social classes came to the baths every day, not only to bathe but also to socialize. The Baths of Caracalla even featured an entire public library. However, the baths also hide a darker side. In the underground tunnels, hundreds of slaves worked in extreme heat to keep the water warm all the time. If you like ancient public baths, don’t skip Baths of Diocletian. This video is sponsored by Beeyond, helping you save space and organize your suitcase.

NUMBER 1: Vatican City Covering an area of 110 acres (44 ha) and with only about 1,000 inhabitants, Vatican City is the smallest state in the world by both area and population. The official name is Vatican City State, and it has been the pope's residence since the year 1377. While the central area is closed to the public, there are many attractions to see, for example, St. Peter's Square and Basilica which are impressive examples of Renaissance architecture. Visit Vatican Museums, displaying a collection of 20,000 works of art. Don't skip Sistine Chapel and one of the most famous frescos in the world, The Creation of Adam, painted in the 16th century by Michelangelo. And here is the bonus that we promised: Did you know that Rome has its own pyramid dating back 2000 years? During the city's rich and diverse history, Romans constantly explored new places to bury their dignitaries. As a result, Rome is also full of mausoleums and crypts worth exploring, such as The Pyramid of Cestius, an ancient pyramid built around 18–12 BCm a tomb for Gaius Cestius. Did you know that Rome actually had two pyramids build as tombs? Meta Romuli was also build in the 1st century was demolished by the 16th century. Castle Sant'Angelo, Hadrian Mausoleum that was later used by popes and as a fortress and a castle. Mausoleum of Augustus, and others. And did you know that there is an area just outside the city center called Appia Antica Park or Appian Way Regional Park with the 2,300-year-old Via Appia road? Here you can find several of the underground burial grounds - Roman catacombs. While there are over sixty catacombs in Rome, with over 180 miles or 300 km of underground passageways, only some are open to the public.
