Dear Zindagi Budget, Screen Count, Economics

Featuring Alia Bhatt and Shahrukh Khan in the lead, Dear Zindagi is being released this Friday. The film has been directed by Gauri Shinde who earlier helmed much acclaimed English Vinglish.

 

Dear Zindagi Budget:

The film has been made on a limited budget of approx 35 crore including production cost and marketing. However, this does not include the remuneration of Shahrukh Khan as he is the producer. If we add SRK’s market value (also considering that it is not his full-fledged role), then budget could be around 55-60 crore.

 

Dear Zindagi Screen Count:

It is expected to release in around 1200 screens mostly at multiplexes. Considering that Dear Zindagi is a niche film, it is a good number.

 

Dear Zindagi Economics:

The producer will be able to recover most of the investment through selling music, satellite and digital rights. The film is sold to distributors in 31 crore and will need a good run for recovering that price.

  • Recover Cost: 62 Cr
  • Hit: 65 Cr
  • Super Hit: 100 Cr

 

Expectations:

It is more of a niche film which will appeal toward the metro audience only. There is still cash crunch issue going on however Dear Zindagi will not be affected much. We are expecting it to have a decent opening and will largely depend on word of mouth.

    • No one will remember Sultan movie after 3 years. Fan, DZ and Raees are good movies. They will be remembered for a long time, not just for the movie but also for the acting

  1. 31 Cr is the Distribution Price and it’s a Multiplex Movie ….I don’t see it opening more than 7-8 Cr so to do 60 Cr It will need good collection in 2nd week 3rd week…As Multiplex Share reduces from 2nd weeks onwards and keeps on reducing in consecutive weeks I think it needs 75 Cr to be Hit as 75 Cr will Give it 35 Cr Share …35 Cr Share may also come with 80 Cr collection if Collection in 3rd 4th week is more..I think it needs 75-80 Cr to be Clean Hit…55-65 cr-Average…65-75 cr-Semi-Hit

      • “Terrorist memon supporter” “Murderer” “Woman Abuser” “Hunter” “PorkiSupporter”

        These are enough to troll Criminal khan Fans…

        The awkward moment is when Criminal fans use “Deshdrohi” word for other actors… lol
        Seriously, These Criminal fans i mean Rickshawalas need education… “Urgent” :D :D :D

  2. Hard to comprehend that a film with the budget of 35 crore needs 58 crore to recover
    It needs 85 crore

    • Srk fan Bro, Acc to your logic [35cr budget film need 85c] .
      ADHM Budget 95cr so need 200cr
      and Shivaay budget 105cr 220cr
      .
      Ha..ha..

  3. @ Bollyarena…. How about Satellite and music rights…? budget is only 35CR and they already sold the movie for 31CR.

  4. BOLLYARENA TEAM AAPNE SHIVAY KE BARE MAIN KHA THA 135 CRORE MAIN COST RECOVER KAREGI TO PHIR JAB USSNE 100 CR BHI NAHI KMAYA TO FLOP KYON NAHI LIKHTE

  5. If they had not sold the theatrical rights then you would have subtracted the satellite rights, music rights. After deducting all it would have come to around 10 cr to recover the cost. And you would have said 25 cr hit (as per other films calculation Ex. Shivaay). Then why now suddenly 65 cr. I know it will collect much more than that.

  6. It’s not about the collection, it’s all about the life cycle of every person. Now a days we need inspiration movie. and I will watch this movie on 25 Nov. best of luck dear zindgi… Lv u zindgi.

  7. Are Mad…….d Bollyarena jb budget 30-35cr h to hit k liye 65-70cr chahiye Dear Zindagi ko aur
    Shivay budget 120cr collection 99cr and
    Bollyarena k verdict – Average ho gyi
    kaha se isko Average kr diye
