'Bohemian Rhapsody' movie has brought Freddie Mercury's estate big bucks

The success of the Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody -- more than $900 million in box office sales -- has been a windfall not only for the producers, which include the band's Brian May and Roger Taylor, but also for the estate of Freddie Mercury.

When he died in 1991, his will stated that 50 percent of his Queen income goes to onetime girlfriend Mary Austin, with a fourth going to his parents and another fourth to his sister, Kashmira Bulsara. His parents have since passed and their share now goes to Mary.

May, Taylor and retired bassist John Deacon are in line to take in $90 million each. Mary is looking at a $60 million take, and Kashmira will have $25 million extra in her account.

Kashmira, who typically shuns the limelight, recently spoke to The Times of London about the film, saying, "It was very emotional for me, [but] I thought it was tastefully done.”

Also tastefully done is her London penthouse that overlooks Hyde Park. She has it on the market for $6.2 million.
