Kaabil Budget, Box Office Economics And Analysis

Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer Kaabil will hit the theatres tomorrow along with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees. It is going to be a big clash at the Box Office and we are expecting both movies to take a good opening at the Box Office. Kaabil is an important film for Hrithik Roshan as his last release ‘Mohenjo Daro’ was a big flop at the Box Office. The Greek God of Bollywood must be hoping for a strong comeback with Kaabil.

Let’s have a look at Kaabil budget and analyse how much money it need to collect to be called a hit at the Box Office. (Kaabil Screen Count)

Kaabil Budget And Recovery

The makers of Kaabil have released an official statement on the budget and distribution rights of the movie. Asper the producers, the total budget of the movie is 50 crores.[Production cost: 50 crores + P&A cost: 20 crores]. Hrithik Roshan’s fee is not included in this budget.

As per the official statement, the satellite and music rights of the film have been sold for 45crores and 8 crores respectively. All India Theatrical rights have been sold for 40 crores while overseas rights are sold for 16 crores. Thus the producers have already recovered 60 crores through worldwide theatrical rights.

Budget: 70 crores
Satellite rights: 45 crores
Music rights: 8 crores
Theatrical rights (India): 50 crores
Theatrical rights (Overseas): 16 crores
Total recovery (before release): 119
Profit for producers: 119 – 70 = 49 crores

The producers have already made a huge profit of 68 crores. To be a safe bet for the distributors, the movie needs to make at least 90 crores at the domestic Box Office.

Kaabil Box Office Analysis 

Lifetime Collection < 90 crores (Flop)
Lifetime Collection > 90 crores (Average)
Lifetime Collection > 110 crores (Hit)
Lifetime Collection > 130 crores (Super Hit)
Lifetime Collection > 170 crores (Blockbuster)

Considering the pre-release buzz and the advance booking report, we are expecting Kaabil to take a decent opening. It should easily cross 10 crores despite its clash with Raees. (Read: Kaabil Box Office Prediction)


  1. Would challenge the economics. All inflated numbers. Production, distributions rights etc. Had that been true, all producers would have been billionaire by now since Independence.
