Even before the Hrithik Roshan‘s Kaabil has hit the theatres, it is already is seen making profits. As per the makers of the film, they have sold the film for a lesser amount of price to my distributors while selling to the individual distributors the sale to distributors is not exceeding more than Rs. 42 crores, without actually accounting Hrithik’s and their price, while the film at a budget of Rs.35 crore along with adding Rs. 15 cr on P&A. The satellite rights were sold for Rs. 50 cr, while the music was sold for Rs 8 crore. Overseas went for Rs. 16 crore.
So it is clear that a film which has been made at a budget of Rs. 50 crore is already on the profit path. It has managed to recover its cost of production by selling the satellite rights itself. Everything else is just an add on to the money that it has earned. When we had spoken to our Trade Analyst, Amul Vikas Mohan, about the clash of Raees and Kaabil when it was first announced. That’s because they have sold a few territories. It’s already in place to show the film on a particular date. Hrithik Roshan fans should rejoice now. Even with an impending clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees, the film will not be affected much. The wait is now to see how the film opens on the first day 2.
