Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt were immensely loved by the audience in the 2014’s blockbuster “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” boar the idea for its sequel “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” which opens this Friday and carries tons of expectations. From the box office perspective,”Badrinath Ki Dulhania” is already in profits even before the film is released. Let us analyze its box office status ..
“Badrinath Ki Dulhania” is backed by power house, Dharma Production, who is responsible for creating blockbusters. With no competition this week and all the previous films exhausted in their theater run, “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” will have a big opening and will be releasing in the 3000 screens in domestic and 500 screen in the overseas market. The total budget of the film is Rs 55 crores (Production cost is Rs 40 crores and Printing & Advertising is Rs 15 crores). Out of this, the satellite right for the film was sold at Rs 25 crores while Music rights were sold at Rs 15 crores. The total theatrical rights (Domestic – Rs 40 crores + Overseas – Rs 15 crores) is Rs 60 crores so the producers have already recovered ( Total Rights – Total budget) = Rs 100 – 55 = Rs 45 crores. What we hear is that Fox star studios have acquired the distribution rights amounting to Rs 60 crores so whatever profit is made by “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” after crossing the budget will directly go to the distributors.
We are expecting a solid opening of Badrinath Ki Dulhania which will shine at the box office.
