There is lot of speculation going on budget of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Reason for this is a very popular trade analyst has published the budget of PRDP as above 200 crore. Which is absolutely false. PRDP is a safe proposition and no need of worry. The way film is performing it will be a profitable venture for both Fox and Rajshri. In fact film is already entering into Hit zone. Only question is whether film can attain Super Hit or Blockbuster status or not.
Coming to PRDP budget. Film cost is around 100 crores without Salman Khan fees. Plus, publicity and advertising cost is somewhere between 25-30 crores. Thus, film landing cost is huge 125-130 crores. Here Salman Khan fees is not included as his term with Sooraj Barjatya is like a family. What is heard that Satellite right deal Salman has done with Star is his fees right now. If Rajshri makes good profit from PRDP then he might get his further profit sharing.
Economics of PRDP -
Landing Cost - 125-130 crores [P& A inclusive].
Satellite Rights - Around 50-55 crores [Salman Khan fees].
Other Non theatrical recovery - Around 20 crores from Music + Other Rights.
Required Recovery from India and Overseas Theatricals - Around 105-110 crores needed for break even. After that Profit starts.
Total theatrical recovery from Worldwide [till last report] - 103-105 crores.
Amount still need to be recovered - Mere 2-5 crores more for break even.
Verdict - Despite PRDP being the cosliest film ever it has recovered nearly all its investment inside first week. Whatever film earns from here on will be profit for Fox and Rajshri. So, here answers your query.
