Previously it was reported that Disney+ Hotstar has bought the digital rights of the upcoming comedy Humgama 2 for Rs. 30 crores. Priyadarshan’s comedy-drama stars Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan Jaffrey and Pranita Subhash alongside Rajpal Yadav and Manoj Joshi.
“The comic caper is sold to Disney+ Hotstar for Rs. 30 crores; however this does not include the satellite rights. While the exact figure for a TV premiere is not known yet, it is expected to be in the range of Rs. 6 to 8 crores, taking the total revenue to Rs. 36 crores,” a source told Bollywood Hungama.
According to the reports, apart from this, the filmmakers have received a reasonable sum from music and ancillary sources too, which now seems a fairly profitable venture for producer Venus.
Now as per the reports the overall revenue from all sources is estimated to be around Rs. 45 crores. This means then Ratan Jain’s banner film will have a table profit of at least Rs. 10 crores, as the estimated budget of Hungama 2 is approximately Rs. 30 crores.
“The film is an ensemble of acclaimed actors, but none of them is a superstar and hence, Priyadarshan has been able to mount it on a big scale. The inside reports are fantastic with some calling it a laugh-a-thon,” the source further told BH.
Previously it was also reported that Akshaye Khanna who was the lead in the previous film Hungama will have a cameo in this film.
