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.

  1. Bollyarena see this factor-
    Dilwale sold in 130cr (90 cr domestic 40cr overseas) In domestic distributer share will be around 75cr and overseas share will be around 60 cr
    Total distributer recovery 75 60= 135cr
    So In terms of distributer recovery its allready a clean hit also….what do u think it should be a clean hit or.not??

  2. Dilwale is more profitable than Raone
    while Raone was also a Hit
    ..that means Dilwale’s verdict should be a clean Hit

  3. Dilwale blockbuster…. 321 cr worldwide in just 14 days….srk super magic….after ban’.planned protest,ban in 5 state…cancel show….bjp MNS RSS bajrang dal….very narrow minded people… Still Dilwale collection 150 cr approximately business life time in India…. This is the power of srk…Dilwale blockbuster….. Agar koi aur actor ke sath aisa hua hota to wo mushkil se wo 70 cr Kama pata India me….bjp destroying India….. Ye intolerance nhi h to kya h? Srk pride of India… Love u sir forever… 80 percent of overseas understand India means srk country….

  4. Laude Jhant ka hai ye site, saala bikau site hai ye. sahi kaha tha kisi ne ke SRK har site ko paise dekar apni taarif karwata hai….
    Terminator Genisys. Budget $150 million
    North America Box office : – $90 million Worldwide box office : – $500 million but it was called a failure.
    but u know that it was only theatrical collection and total collection was above 2 – 3 billion dollar but still it was called flop. don’t u have common sense. How Satellite right music right and other right is 95 crs explain me. and how domestic and overseas share is 130 crs explain me ?
    Ra.One was aslo a flop but Bikau sites like u said it as Super Hit. Thats why we called him media created sites.
    Then how Brothers is flop it should be Hit, Baby is average how ? it should be Super Hit, Singh is Bling is Hit how ? it should be Blockbuster. GIB should also be blockbuster…. and u biased site said PRDP as Super Hit with collection of around 430 crs How ? explain us ?

  5. in your short article you gave nightmare to haters who are calling its floped…thanks Arena…
    but still you didnt mention is it hit or super hit

  7. Dilwale Indian theatrical collection till 3rd. January is around 140 Crore. Satellite right sold at 60 Crore.
    Music right sold to Sony at 20 Crore. So the total Indian collection stands 140+60+20 = 220 Crore.
    Overseas collection till 31st. December was USD 20 Million. Which means in Rupee 20 Million x 66 =
    132 Crore. Now this overseas figure is Gross. Take only 30% of 132 Crore Gross collection to add to the net
    Indian collection as overseas profit, the figure will stand : 39 Crore approx.

    Indian theatrical collection: 140 Crore
    Satellite right sold : 60 Crore
    Music right sold to Sony : 20 Crore
    Profit from Overseas : 39 Crore
    —————
    Total collection till now 259 Crore. Dilwale’s made on a budget of 110 Crore which is less than BM. The film has collected 259 Crore till now. 259 – 110 = 149 Crore. Nearly 148% profit till now. Outstanding,
    considering the following facts:
    Constant damaging remarks and appeal by a section of people in social media to boycott the film.
    Agitations in front of theaters resulting closure of screening the film in many places etc.

    This only prove the Star Power of SRK. Picture aavi baaki hai mere dost…….

  8. Dear Bolly, you have been criticizing Dilwale even though it has been doing well in case of clash, protest and some kind of hatred against SRK. But you never tried to show any negativity about Bajirao. BM is good only at high end multiplexes, it’s not performing in Eastern region, South and small centres. So distributors in these regions will not loose anything or Medial houses like BollyArena will compensate. You already declared BM Hit before it recovered the cost and want to make it super hit. Please do some sensible reporting.

  9. How come Bollyarean is declaring BM Hit and super hit in the coming days only on the basis of collections in India at only few centres having multiplexes and it is for the movie which has just covered its total cost. Are you guys are doing favour for EROS ? Why don’t you publish the facts about BM that it is under performing in Bihar, Bengal and Nizam ? Dilwale could have earned 10 crores more if the clash wouldn’t have happened.

  10. In India BM Superhit , Dilwale Hit. No guesses for the winner…!!! More clashes will b there in coming days due to this result. Bolly arena, trade people had better expectations and they anticipated high returns and got the movie on high prices. Now they stand as losers while producers make money. Prices for Satellite rights and music rights indicate the expectations, anticipations and past records and not the quality/ appreciation of the movie content. This might be the reason same movies may b hit or flop for different persons..

    • BHAI CLASHBM SUPERHIT KAISE HO GYI.USS FILM SE BHI TO KAI GJAH JAISE EAST,SOUTH KE DISTRIBUTOR KO ZABARDAST LOSS HUA EVEN IN NORTH ITS LOSS FOR DISTRIBUTOR MOST OF INCOME OF BM COME ONLY FROM GUJRAT AND MAHARASTRA .TO BAKI DISTRIBUTOR KA KYA HUA.BIHAR KE DISTRIBUTOR KO TO 80%NUKSAAN HUA PHIR YE SUPERHIT KAISE HO GYI AUR ERO KI AADAT HAI 15 CRORE JYADA BUS BTANE KI

  11. abe ullu ke pattho tumhari samjg main kuch aata he ya nahi bas srk ke pyaar main adhe ho jab prem ratan dhan payo ko 400 caror main blockbuster nahi diya to tum 300 crore ko kese blockbuster kara rahe ho jabki India ki 200 crore movie hai prem ratan dhan payo

  12. PRDP total recovery is distributers share 145 crore sattelite is sold 50 crore music is sold 17 crore and overseas share is 50 crore total recovery 262 crore
    PRDP total collection worldwide 435 crore
    PRDP total collection 696 crore
    PRDP budget 125
    696 -125 =571 crore profit ke baad jab super hit hui to Diwale blockbuster Kaise ho gayi

  13. As per Trade, Dilwale is already declared FLOP. Please Bollywood arena, you also declare it as FLOP.
    Its already a loosing for distributors and exhibitors. Its a biggest flop in India. It needs to collect 200 crores in India to be a clean HIT. Please Bollywood areana, be fair.

    • SOHAIL TUMHARE KEHNE SE NA RAONE FLOP HOGI NA DILWALE .JYADA MATHMETICS MAIN PADNE KI ZAROORAT NAHI HAI FLOP O FILM HOTI HAIN JISME 50% SE JYADA INVESTMENT KA RETURN NAHI AAYA HAI.PRODUCER KE HISAB SE 60 CR SATELIGHT RIGHT 20CR MUSIC SE 80 CRORE AA GYE DISTRIBUTOR KO 125 CRORE MAIN SOLD KIYA TOTAL INCOME 205 CRORE IN INDIA.AB DISTRIBUTOR KI BAAT KARTE HAIN 125 CRORE MAIN FILM PURCHASE KIYA 145 CRORE INDIA KA INCOME +30%OF FOREIGN INCOME =145+45=190-125=65 CRORE PROFIT AB BTAO FLOP KAISE HUI.

  14. as per trade, dilwale is flop. After 2007, SRK films graphs shows downwards. Only Salman and Aamir are giving biggest BLOCKBUSTERS year by year. After Ra.One, another Dilwale flop for srk.

  15. Dilwale ke budget me 70 cr add karo sharukh khan ki fee ke. 30 Cr rohit sheety ki fee bhi. Pata lag jayega ki kitni badi flop h ye

  16. bollyarena team ek khud hi update kiya tha ki diwale is hit 160 crore 200 crore super hit over 250 crore blockbuster …bollyarena team Kabhi to khud ke update par atal raha karo

  17. Bollyarena, please declare that crap Dilwale a blockbuster once & for all instead of coming up with funny articles time & again. Someone posted Dilwale is a masterpiece! Seriously?? It would have taken just few seconds to look for the meaning of the word ‘masterpiece’ before typing it.

  19. 1st of all I’m the exhibitor in yavatmal and have knowledge of box office business since last 7-8 years… all the stupid people shut your mouth and listen carefully if u don’t know boxoffice business then better to understand than rubbishing other people’s view who knows it better like bollyarena explained… listen carefully
    Dilwale budget:- 75cr.(cost of production without SRK’s & Rohit shetty fees as they’re producers) + 25cr.(prints & advertising including promotions n other stuff) = total 100-105cr. landing cost even BOI, taran Adarsh and komal nahta confirmed. Now breakdown of Recovery:- Dilwale is finishing between 148-150cr. nett mark in India that means distributor share is approximately 75cr. + film is finishing at 160cr. gross in overseas in 1st phase from which it’s getting 65-70cr. distributor share as from overseas only 40-45% share come in distributor pocket from gross(note:- there’s no or very negligible entertainment tax on Indian films so gross collection is nett collection in overseas) + Red chillies done a deal with Sony India for 220-230cr. for satellite rights of 4 films including Dilwale so Dilwale value from satellite right is approximately 60cr. + 20cr came from Sony music as part of music rights + 10-15cr. came from brand tie ups like ponds Ariel nerolac etc, internet n Cable rights = total recovery 225cr-230cr. means profit of 230-105cr.= 125cr. which is 125% it’s superhit for producers but main problem is SRK sold film to different regional distributors for 110-115cr. expecting that it’ll at least generate distributor share of Chennai express which is 120cr. plus but its not happened as film under performed mainly in 4-5 big circuits they lost their 40-50% money, film is going for 75cr. share in India in that Bengal, east India, south India and other small circuits where film performed well is recovering their costs but big circuits Mumbai, Gujarat, rajsthan, Delhi/UP, central India & CP/berrar distributors lost money from 10%-50% which is approximately combined 30-40cr. so for different trade giving different verdict so overall it’s neither a big hit nor a flop as some gained and some lost so it’s not a clean hit its a semi hit as it under performed & sold for high prices which it not able to covered for few like Salman Jai ho. those asking for Ra.one, it was not sold for high prices so it’s recovered approximately 90-95% money of distributors and given not great but appreciable profits to producers despite its high budget that’s why got clean hit. so first get the facts of business and then react guys without knowledge telling anything is dangerous.
