How Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One Will Recover Rs. 150 Crore . This has been penned by Komal Nahta for Koimoi.com

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There have been whispers in trade circles that Shah Rukh Khan’s reckless spending on Ra.One may cost him dear. Although nobody knows for sure what the budget of the costliest Hindi film actually is, it is estimated that the superstar-producer may have spent around Rs. 125 crore to make the film. If one were to add another Rs. 25 crore as cost of promotion and release, the total investment in the computer graphics-heavy Ra.One would be Rs. 150 crore. Shah Rukh plans to convert the film into 3D.

However, the position is not as grim as is being made out to be by the industry people. Rather, there’s every chance that Ra.One will cover its huge cost and, in fact, fetch profits. Here’s how:

Ra.One: Projected Overseas Business – Rs. 45 crore

Shah Rukh Khan is the badshah among Bollywood actors in the Overseas circuit. At least ten of his starrers figure in the Top 20 list of Bollywood films in the US and the UK. His last release, My Name Is Khan, crossed the Rs. 35 crore-mark abroad. Given the fact that it would be almost after two years that a Shah Rukh film would be releasing, one can safely estimate the business of Ra.One to increase by 20% over that of MNIK. Besides, Ra.One is being dubbed in German and given King Khan’s supreme popularity in Germany, one can safely add another couple of crore rupees to the Overseas business of Ra.One from the German version. Therefore, a figure of Rs. 45 crore seems achievable for Ra.One. We are talking of distributor’s share here, not net collection.

Ra.One: Satellite Rights – Rs. 40 crore

It is rumoured that Shah Rukh Khan will be richer by Rs. 40 crore when his deal for satellite rights of Ra.One goes through.

Ra.One: Music Rights – Rs. 7 crore

King Khan couldn’t have settled for anything less than Rs.7 crore for the audio rights of his super-hero extravaganza. The figure may be higher than this, but not lower, for sure.

Ra.One: Tamil & Telugu Dubbed Versions’ Business – Rs. 1 crore

In the worst case scenario, the 3D and 2D versions of the Tamil and Telugu dubbed versions of Ra.One can be expected to yield a combined share of Rs. 1 crore.

Ra.One: India Theatrical Business – Rs. 70 crore

Since Ra.One will come on the festive occasion of Diwali and will be released on a Wednesday (October 26), the five-day weekend (Oct. 26-30) can be safely expected to be bountiful. On a conservative estimate, the film could net Rs. 90 crore in the five-day weekend. For a net of Rs. 90 crore, the distributor’s share would easily amount to Rs. 50 crore. So, this would likely be the share for the first five-day weekend. Add a share of at least Rs. 8 crore for the balance four days and you have Rs. 58 crore at the end of the first week itself. Fetching another Rs. 12 crore in the subsequent weeks should not be a problem for the film. Of course, the five-day net collection of Rs. 90 crore is only an estimation. This figure could go up to Rs. 100 or even 110 crore. In that case, the first weekend’s share could go up to Rs. 55 or even 58 crore! If that were to happen, the first week’s India share alone could be Rs. 70 crore.

So, what does the total business figure come to?
Overseas : Rs. 45 crore

Satellite : Rs. 40 crore

Music : Rs. 7 crore

Tamil/Telugu : Rs. 1 crore

India : Rs. 70 crore

Total : Rs. 163 crore

The calculations and estimations reveal that Ra.One may, after all, not be the risky proposal it is assumed to be by the trade people. Only if, God forbid, the film doesn’t find acceptance will recovery of the unduly high cost of the film be an impossibility for producer Shah Rukh Khan.

Otherwise, SRK doesn’t need to really worry.

    thankyou very much my friend for that information.Now ignorant people praising ra 1 will see how they are used.

    Srk has made himself a millionaire by repeating rahul,raj roles.His fans are the cause for this.
    Till the day that we stop watching movies on tv, indian fans will always be taken for granted.
    Srk is shameless and has no dignity else why would a superstar of his level dance in a wedding of unknown people? even amitabh,amir will never do that for money.Srk will do anything for money and refuse to help anyone around him(except in tv).
    Too bad his children will grow up to be like him.

    I respect his nonfilmi background and immense popularity he has but he is seriouslly losing his charm,wit and jokes are lame.I used to be a srk fan but later realised that amir khan,hrithik has more passion,dedication to their roles.

    don't get worried about sharukh , he will recover the cost or he can earn it buy dancing for few minutes in some ones marriage ,advertisement ,or in inauguration or brand ambassadorial for some products ,he will earn that money in few days or much more then that ,think about our country ,inflation ,corruption , black money ,politicians looting us , Anna hazare who is the real hero fighting for country ,
    According to Swiss bank reports :money stashed i swiss banks belongs to politicians , Bollywood Stars,Now u know why do the picturization or shooting of most Indian songs take place in Switzerland ,yes they r enjoying with hard earn money of common man who pays taxes for every thing and they enjoy on that money thats too tax free in turn we make them more rich by watching their movies in theaters ,and also paying entertainment taxes which is about 50% we making them more rich ,they have sold RA-1 rights to television for rs more then 40 crore so it will be obviously on TV , so why don't to watch free ON tv instead of spending our hard earned money and make them rich ,why we should be always loyal and don't watch pirated versions,why only common man is expected to be loyal Yes he will make lot of money and much money ,he will be much richer because there r many fools to watch his movies and fill his pocket and make him more richer and we have to fight for month to earn thousand of rupees and from which we will spend on his movie to make him more richer , They Blocked my video from you tube because they got worried.
    RA-1 Very Bad special effects Made by child, and they say very expensive movie, money only given to stars for parties m why to watch this low budget action film , Ramsey films better, Spend high cost is sham , a gimmick to give hype to the movie, effects taken from X-men, fantastic 4 etc but r of inferior quality sp I down loaded on my face book many ideas r taken from Robot too.

    komal nahta is stupid... films success depends on its box office collections... if ra 1 is 150 crs budget then it shud do business like 3 idiots to recover all money [3I did 202 crs in india & 50-55 crs overseas] other wise it will be huge flop.. complete humilation of srk.....infact i think his career is dependant on this film...... by looking at ra 1 i dont think it will even cross 100 crs so forget 200 crs...... all songs r stupid specially tht chammak challo......such type of films never works in india & srk is not rajinikanth or salman khan to pull huge crowd in theaters.... he dont have tht kind of deadly & massive star power..... so forget about recovering such cost...... its FLOP.....

    selling music rights, satellite rights does not count as movie being hit. In that case, even the flop movies -ravan and guzarish recovered there costs. Ravan - 40 crore hindi version, 10 crore telgu, 60 crore tamil, + music,+ satellite.> 120 crore. But it won't be called a hit movie even after that . How much it earns purely at box office matters. Raone's cost is 150 k, for it to be superhit, it should earn 300 k at box office , for distributors to recover their costs
    I agree with u. Then Rocket singh and Anjana Anjani also super hit movies.

    i totally agree and people expect a superhit by SRK but i dont see it possible with that high investment.
    why doesn't Komal Nahta do the same calculations and estimations for every movie? youd be surprised to know how many flop movies actually recovered their costs..

    he did a great a job atleast he was brave enough to do something out of his comfort zone, he was also a professional and he wanted to produce a movie with great vfx and action sequence not some stupid cartoon animation. I think nothing is guaranteed but he is even applauded now before the release cuz he had the guts to do this project which will make india proud. hats off sharukh

    Anonymous, way to totally misunderstand the essence of the article. Perhaps, the next time you should read it. But anyway, this time, I'll tell you what the article was about - It wasn't about the movie being a hit, but about the Producer recovering the cost. There's a difference. Read to find out. No, really, nothing is worse than trying to sound smart and argumentative and missing the point completely.
