Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s family-drama ‘Tubelight’, which released on June 23rd, received extremely poor reports from the critics and the general public. The poor word of the mouth led the film to wrap its Indian business at Rs 120.50 crores nett approximately with a distributor share amount of Rs 60.25 crores approximately.
As the film’s Indian theatrical rights were sold for Rs 132 crores, Kabir Khan’s directional project remained as a huge loss venture for the distributors with an amount of Rs 71.75 crores, which is around 54% losses. After facing huge losses by distributing the film, all the distributors requested Salman Khan to compensate the losses for which Salman too agreed.
Now, it was known that Salman Khan returned Rs 35 crores approximately as part of the compensation to the Indian distributors sticking to his words, which is indeed a nice gesture from the actor.
Even though the film is completely a hugely profitable venture for the ‘Tubelight’ makers, it incurred a huge loss for the distributors as it failed to recover the amount at the box office. So now Salman Khan shared a part of the profits that he earned to the distributors.
