Profit – Loss Calculation:
After expenses deduction, USA share is $1,249,640 i.e. 8.49Cr INR, including non-USA countries [2.50 Cr] total overseas share of Khaidi No.150 is 10 Cr 99 Lakhs INR. As the distributor, had paid only 10 crores as the distribution rights to the producer, this overseas distributor had earned around 1 crore profit
According to the reliable sources, producer agreed to sell the rights for 12 Crores (2 crore recoverable), but distributors had paid only 10 crores. So, now if the producer strictly enforces the pre-release agreement, then above said 1 crore profit would not remain with the distributors, it will be a breakeven film for them.
