    unheard of figures

    Rajnikanth's record remuneration for 'Sivaji' may soon be bettered by Bollywood. The new studios on the block are willing to cough out unheard of figures for snapping up actors and filmmakers for multiple movie contracts.

    I think, on the block = obstacle
    cough out = coming out from the mouth

    unheard of figures = .....don't know........

    Please help me.

    The new studios on the block
    newly formed studios or studios new to the area
    cough out
    come up with (in this case, pay certain amounts)
    unheard of figures
    amounts that have not been paid before (Figures that are "unheard of" are invariably higher than those previously paid.)
