Despite having big starcast, massive budget (Rs 300 crore), hit item number and high expectations ‘Thug Of Hindostan’ backfired and now the distributors of the movie Yash Raj Films (YRF) seems to be in trouble.
The film failed to collect even 50% of its investment. The Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial which came out on Diwali, has earned only Rs 145 crore in the 11 days.
The exhibitors who displayed the movie lost over 50% of their investment in this movie. Now they are demanding compensation from the distributors Yash Raj Films (YRF).
On the condition of anonymity an exhibitor told Mid-Day, “As is the practice with YRF, the studio had taken on the distribution responsibilities. The exhibitors agreed to the minimum-guarantee deal as they expected handsome profits from the big-budget film, but the tables have turned.”
