We have received many queries regarding Happy New Year gross collection in India and Worldwide. Question is valid as many readers stating that they are receiving varied gross collection of HNY from various sources.
Generally film business in India is calculated in Nett collection minus Government Tax which is irrelevant as it goes to Govt pocket only. But while calculating worldwide collection we need to take gross figure. There are two main reason for it. First there is no Nett collection in Overseas. Plus, distributor share of gross collection is about 40% be it India or Overseas, that's why that is best parameter to judge Worldwide numbers.
Now coming to Happy New Year gross collection in India. Film has collected around 192.5 crore nett after 14 days of running. Tax in India is around 32.5% (including Rajasthan which is newly added). That means gross collection of 255 crore. HNY has collected around 80 crore gross (whatever data received) in Overseas in 12 days of running in Overseas. So, HNY World wide collection is around 335 crore gross (approx).
Few informed us via mail and Twitter that few sites are taking TAX of HNY as 40-45% and hence, increase in gross collection. That is absolutely false and one should ask them why they did so and what is the reason behind that. It is absolutely unacceptable if some one is spreading false news, as HNY has done excellent business till now and maligning anything regarding the film is unacceptable as film has already gross 300 crore which is no mean feat.
Another suggestion for readers, don't believe in every A, B and C sites as they hardly have any knowledge of film business and trade or in fact have any direct or in-direct contact with trade and those are contaminating the whole pond. Rest is upto you people. Cheers!
