Salman Khan’s Tubelight was a huge box office failure. The film which released on Eid, grossed 118 crores in its lifetime run in India.

The distribution rights of Tubelight were sold to NH Studios for 132 crore. Thus it caused heavy losses for distributors and many of them lost their lifetime earning. There were reports that Salman will compensate the distributors few days back. Now the actor has finally repaid 32.5 cr.

On Wednesday, Salman Khan called the distributor to compensate for the losses suffered due to Tubelight. Salman, on the behest of his father Salim Khan, agreed in June to reimburse for the losses suffered for Tubelight.

Says a source close to the development, “Salman Khan had promised to return his distributor’s money by the end of July. However, he was busy shooting abroad for Tiger Zinda Hai. Now that he’s back in Mumbai, he has agreed to return Rs. 32.5 crores to the distributors. This is half of the total losses suffered  by distributors over Tubelight.”

It will be interesting to see if SRK will also compensate the Jab Harry Met Sejal distributors. Interestingly both Tubelight and JHMS were bought by NH Studios.

  3. I am not the fan of any bolly actor

    He sud learn from varun and akshay Sir

  4. Indias megastar has given biggest disaster that too on biggest festival. 😂

    I think no one can break this record even in dream 😂😂

  5. WOW they made over 200cr and gave distributors 32.5cr at least aamir Khan makes sure everyone makes money from his ventures I mean even talaash (or some haters call the laash) made money for everyone.

    • Even some distributors nd theatre owner wrote letter to aamirkhan nd they requested him to do more films so they can make money.

      Power of global megastar

  6. Good gesture ! SRK did it im the past, I’m sure he’ll do it again this time. I just can’t imagine how disappointed NH Studios will be. They bought a Salman and a SRK starrer in the same year and both were their biggest flop in years…tough luck.

  7. I have 3 news for 3fanbases, first begin with salman
    1-tiger zinda hai is being shot on a grand level, the action is on par with big Hollywood movies, budget has reached 200cr without including salman’s fee,he has signed on the condition of 70%profit ratio.It is the highest budget movie in the history of bollywood.yrf had planned to make the movie in 170cr budget but after bb2 they increased the budget.i think boi will consider 260cr as budget including salman’s​market value.so it needs to collect above 370cr to get ATBB verdict.to get other 2news follow my next 2comments.

    • @Real Salman Fan
      Now sure TZH will be biggest disaster in d history of bollywood, tollywood, Hollywood.

      Salman the greatest local flop star 😂

      • Abe Ghadhe,

        Kaun si Movie chalegi…kaun nahi… yeh director par depend karta hai….Agar movie achhi hogi woh jarur chalegi….aur agar bekar toh just vice-versa……Right now only good scripts are working only….

        Rahi baat Aamir ki……He is a versatile actor with great director mindset…..So ,most of his films in a span of 1.5 decades are good/Excellent….which is why he had build a trust in movie goers mind regarding his current as well as future projects….

        Stop ranting like an Idiot……Salman/Srk ne tera kuch bigada hai kya????…..All time sirf negative comments….

      • Yes Bhai but yrf has signed salman on 70%profit basis way back in august after sultan release for tiger zinda hai,yes aamir also signed thug for 70%profit basis.aur mujhe aap normal fan mat samjhiye Jo ki yun hi bol raha hai, mein bahot sare so called trade site se Jada janta hun,aur haan sultan bhi salman ne profit share basis sign kiya tha wo news to us waqt Forbes ne nahi kiya tha,uska matlab kya, Forbes toh tubelight ke liye 27cr opening,320cr lifetime predict kiya tha to wo hua,aap jante hai Forbes apne article mein so called trade analyst sumit kadel Ka analysis post karta hai.ab bolo

      • ulluh fans 70% shooting complete huyi hai. Just checked now. 70% salmaan share. Only aamir name come. Shooting ki bat thi. Dont even do research .

      • Just one correction in my above comment *salman has agreed to do the movie tiger zinda hai on 50% profit share basis,typo mistake its not 70%.

  8. Ek tu negative reviews per b 120cr jab k sare actor mixed per b 100cr nahi dhe parahe aur oper se 50% loss cash back real goolden harted true megastar salmankhan

  9. Actually distributors should not buy on such a huge price on just basis of super stardom.
    They should have known what actually a films genre & potential.Aamir or SRK are bigger than ranvir,but Padmavati will be always bigger movie than dear zindagi or secret superstar.what will be the collection it is altogether a different thing.

  10. 2nd news about akki’s movie 2.0, movie will release solo on republic day,aiyyari will postpone.but according to sources close to Shankar, akki has only 30minute role in the movie,rajni has lead role of robot in the movie.but he has purposefully said he wanted to do the role of akki to gain pan indian attention,they are pretending it as if akshay and rajni has parallel role to get collection outside south, but akki has very weak role compare to rajni,I think akki should not have done the role he is a panindian superstar

  11. ganta gud gesture.. now the trend will only demolish distributors further.. producers will now chunks of prifits too if the movie is a hit… tit for tat..

  12. Sirf 1 ya 2 flop se Srk sir ya Salman ke stardom mein bikul bhi farak nahi padega,they are the biggest Superstars of Indian cinema,sabhi jante hain
