Udta Punjab Budget, Screen Count, Economics
The much controversial Shahid Kapoor’s Udta Punjab is releasing this Friday. The film also stars Diljit Dosanjh, Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan. It has been directed by Abhishek Chaubey.
Udta Punjab Budget:
The film has been made at a high cost. The production cost of the film is 45 crores and 10 crores more have been spent on marketing. It is indeed a big amount for a film like this.
Udta Punjab Screen Count:
The film will be releasing in around 2100 screens in India. Ideally, it needed 1500 screens release however the controversy has led to increasing buzz. So the makers have opted for a wider release,
Udta Punjab Economics:
The recovery can be an issue for the film. “A” certificate means that there will be few takers for satellite rights. However, it managed to get a good amount for music rights.
Recover Cost: 60 Cr
Hit: 70 Cr
Super Hit: 100 Cr
Udta Punjab is all set to take a very good start thanks to the controversy. It will challenge for a 10 crore opening day or maybe higher. Despite the limited appeal, the pretty good start can backfire sometimes. As if content is not universally accepted then there can be big drops on the second day itself. Keeping in mind all these factors, we expect Udta Punjab to open around 45% on Friday.
Note: Early box office reports will be updated soon.
