Tiger’s profit streak

Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai made at a production cost of Rs 130 crore with a Print and Advertising (P & A) budget of Rs 20 crore has made much more than the investment in quick time.

The film has had multiple profitable deals thanks to the Salman Khan presence in the film.

“The satellite rights of the film and the digital rights of the movie come close to Rs 80 crore. Then the overseas should have fetched anywhere around Rs 30 crore easily,” says a trade source.

Add to that TZH had a fabulous deal with the Abu Dhabi government to promote the Emirate and they had deal where the entire cost of the shooting of the film was apparently being handled locally without the producers Yash Raj Films spending money from their pockets.

“So even though their last four films like Befikre, Qaidi Band, Bank Chor and Meri Pyaari Bindu did not do well at the box office, Tiger Zinda Hai has made them richer on all counts,” we are informed.

This purportedly means that the film’s collections till now which has touch Rs 200 crore meant that the film is already running on very good profits at the moment, with a big collection expected in the next few days as well. “There is no competition for Tiger Zinda Hai in the net few days and people often go to the theatres on New Year eve and on New year as well,” says trade expert Atul Mohan hoping that the film can try and touch the Rs 300 crore mark with a bit of luck as well.

Please note that the producers get around 40 percent of the India box-office collections. The percentage of the producers’ profit however varies from deal to deal.
