Tubelight Budget, Screen Count, Economics

One of the most anticipated projects of this year Tubelight is releasing this Friday. The film stars Salman Khan and Sohail Khan in the lead roles. It has been directed by Kabir Khan and produced by SKF.

Tubelight Budget:

As per the sources close to the film, Tubelight has been made on a budget of 95 cr (excluding Salman’s fee). The market value of Salman is around 55-60 crore so the actual value of the budget will be 150-155 crores.

Tubelight Screen Count:

It is releasing in approx 4400 screens in India. While in overseas it is likely to be the be the widest Bollywood release ever. The filmmakers are targeting to release it in 50 plus overseas territories and it is already the biggest release in some markets.

Tubelight Economics:

The makers are in the safe zone by selling the film at a record price. The non-theatrical recovery was also pretty good. Now it will up to NH Studioz to recover the high price. Tubelight will be a successful film for all parties involved after crossing 250 crores only.

  • Satellite Rights: 55 Cr
  • Music rights: 20 Cr
  • Digital Rights: N/A
  • Other: 8 Cr
  • Distributor Price: 132 Cr
  • Overseas Rights: 38 Cr
  • Recover Costs: 250 Cr


Last year when we reported about Sultan, only sky was the limit as far the buzz was concerned. This is not the case with Tubelight which is probably due to the average promos. Though the buzz has increased after the release of couple of new tracks which hint at strong emotional content. It will be a good start if the film crosses 25 crore on opening day considering the pre-Eid release period.

Round Up:



Salman, Sohail
Kabir Khan
Release Date
23 June 2017
Run Time
137 min
155 Cr

  1. Why dont you guys add Akshay Kumar fees to his movies Salman khan is the producer of the movie so its very stupid of you guys
    To add his fees and unnecessarily show the increased budget .

      • Srk will share profit in raees …budget 92 Cr because he is co-producer…on the other hand salman will take renumeration since he is producer so budget 155 Cr.
        Thank you so much

      • It baffles all logic. As a producer himself, he is not taking a rupee, then why should you add market fee to the budget. Budget means how much you spend for production cost with marketing and if that comes to 95 crores that’s it, so why should you add nonexisting market fee into it ? Please get your arithmetic right, it is making no sense.

        In Akshay’s case, if he is not the producer, it is a different case to add market fee, but still that is not fair as at the time of release he wouldn’t have charged a rupee and only gains or gets his fee when the producer is making profit. So, finally stop your own assumptions about economics. Please are well educated to understand the difference and manipulations.

        • Completely agree with Max… How can you add a hypothetical fees in the budget? When did last time Salman Khan acted in a movie not produced by him by charging a fees? Charging a fees in a movie produced by someone else and acting in your own movie are completely different things… Noone calculates your own fees in the budget when you are producing something… Adding Akshay’s fees hypothetically for Jolly LLB 2 was also wrong…

  2. As an SRK fan I really feel jealous of Salman Fans
    Salman has universally appealing movies, family movies, big scale films and grip on festivals
    All the best for tubelight

    • Beta yeh movie toh gayi
      First flop of salman is coming
      Impossible to reach 250
      Max 200 karegi so flop

    Tubelight t is Remake of Hollywood movie Little Boy with Bajrangi Bhaijaan kind Of Emotion.
    Little Boy+BB=Tubelight.
    BB was Written by Vijendra Prasad Father of Rajamouli.
    And Tubelight is Written by Kabir Khan previously He wrote Scripts of
    Kaabul Express & ETT.
    So 1 thing is 100% guaranteed
    TL wont Match Standard of BB
