Shivaay Budget, Screen Count, Economics: The film features Ajay Devgn in the lead roles and also marks the debut of Sayesha Saigal and Erika Kaar. It is directed and produced by Ajay Devgn.
Shivaay budget is approximately 120 crore including production cost and P&A. It does not include the fee of Ajay Devgn. The film has been shot on a big scale in overseas locations.
Shivaay Screen Count:
The film will be releasing in around 2750 screens in India. In single screens, Shivaay will take a lead due to massy content and promos. However, in multiplexes, the screens will be divided 50-50. In some class circuits like West Bengal, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will be ahead.
Shivaay managed to get a 40 crore recovery by selling satellite rights. Further 10 crore were recovered by music and other rights. It means that film has already recovered 50 crore from pre-release business and needs further 70 cr from India and overseas theatrical share.
However, as you know we don’t give verdict just on the basis of producers recovery and also considers distributing price. Shivaay is sold to distributors at a 70 cr price which is a good amount but not comparable to other big budget films. The film should go over 135 crore to emerge success
Budget: 120 Cr
Satellite Rights: 40 Cr
Music & Others: 10 Cr
Distributing Price: 70 Cr
Recover Cost: 135 Cr
Hit: 140 Cr
Super Hit: 190 Cr
Shivaay is sure to get a double digit opening and can go higher But the real test will be on Diwali which will fall on Monday as then word of mouth will come into play. It needs to cross Ajay Devgn’s highest grosser Singham Returns to become a hit. The early reports will be updated soon.
