Rustom Budget, Screen Count, Economics

Akshay Kumar’s Rustom is also releasing this Friday. The film is directed by Tony Desai and produced by Neeraj Pandey. However, the general perception is that Rustom is helmed by Neeraj Pandey.

Rustom Budget:

Producers are yet to provide their official figures. But as per estimates, the film has been made on a budget of 45 crores including production cost and P&A. It does not include Akshay Kumar’s fee. Probably it is one of those rare films where a high amount (15 cr) is spent on marketing as compared to production cost (30 cr). Mohenjo Daro production cost is double as compared to Rustom.

Rustom Screen Count:

Rustom will be releasing in around 2300 screens in India. The film has managed a very good number of screens despite the clash and the limited appeal. A lot should be credited the producers who have ensured a wide release, especially in urban centers. (It also includes shared screens with (MD)

Rustom Economics:

As it has been made on a low budget so the recovery will not be any issue. In fact, the makers are already in the profit zone. Akshay Kumar will share a profit in the film’s business.

Budget: 45 Cr
Recover Cost: 75 Cr
Hit: 80 Cr
Super Hit: 115 Cr



Rustom is currently super hot as it is having excellent buzz and hype. However, a lot of expectations are being attached to the film unnecessarily. It is a thriller film and will mainly appeal to the multiplex audience mostly. So if Rustom crossed 100 cr, it will be considered as a huge achievement and will be a big hit.

Also, tell us what do you think about Rustom budget and screen count in the comments section.


  1. if it will do 100cr. business then will be very hard for any actor to beat this record of having 3 , 100cr. movies in a same year.if he start doing only one movie for a year then each of his movies will go 250 to 300 cr.

  2. “Probably it is one of those rare films where a high amount (15 cr) is spent on marketing as compared to production cost (30 cr).”

    That shows the confidence of Team Rustom. If the Product was weak, they would have spent lesser amount. If they had spent Rs. 10 Crores lesser, they would have required 20 Crores lesser collection to be in same situation.

    Expecting Masterpiece in Rustom…

  3. Mohenjo Daro and Rustom

    #Boxoffice Prediction- Very difficult to predict Bcz here need to predict two films WOM and its also related to each other.

    #1)If Rustom got Positive WOM nd

    a)If MD got Positive WOM,
    Rustom- 77cr, MD- 167cr(120-190)
    b)If MD got Mixed WOM,
    Rustom- 90. MD- 101(80-120)
    c)If MD got negative WOM
    Rustom- 103, MD- 73(70-100)

    #2)If Mohenjodaro got Positive WOM,

    a)If Rustom got positive WOM,
    Rustom 77, MD 167
    b)If Rustom got Mixed WOM,
    Rustom-64, MD- 170
    c)If Rustom got Negative WOM,
    Rustom-52cr MD- 185cr

    If MD got extra ordinary WOM then 200cr sure.

  4. Comment:they r overpromoting it which shows they don’t have confident on their product .on the other hand MD makers promote it like a normal movie and don’t think of clash which showd their confident on MOHENJO DARO which is also selected @ international locarno film festival as a closing film

  10. A lot of expectations are attached unnecessarily? Wow bollyarena, you have already started spreading negativity like u did in HF3…. A 3rd class trailer of Mohenjo Daro n you say it is good. And a fine thriller movie with super hot music creating curiosity to watch the movie. You are saying people are unnecessarily expecting the movie to be good. Shame..
