There is a lot of confusion about Dilwale box office verdict. Few days back, we have updated the verdict which has sparked a controversy.
Some section of the media is labeling Dilwale as a flop which is ridiculous. How can a film be a flop which had a recovery of over 200 crore. Yes that’s right.
The film recovered 95 crore from satellite rights, music and other sources. The distributor share from India and overseas will be over 130 crore. So it means that film has recovered around 225 crore. Even some of the big hits has not recovered this amount.
On the other hand there are people who have the opinion that Dilwale is a super hit/hit. But the film was sold to regional distributors in a huge price of 125 crore. That means it should collect over 200 crore to recover their investment which has not happened. Yes the film has performed extremely well in overseas. But you can’t give verdict on the basis of that.
Our stance is quite clear on that. We update the verdict on the basis of the actual budget and theatrical and non theatrical recovery. So Dilwale will be a Semi Hit.
There is a disappointment in the trade because expectations were very high. It was considered as a sure shot 200 crore grosser. Though the film has underperformed but it is not as bad as being pictured in the media.
