Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer ‘Dilwale’ was clearly one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2015.
Even though the film performed well abroad becoming the highest grosser for any Shah Rukh Khan movie, the national collections were far below the distributors and also expectations endured substantial losses.
But, Shah Rukh come to the aid and has taken a generous measure. The performer has refunded half of the sum of the losses faced by the providers because of the film’s performance.
Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahata wrote about it. He tweeted, “@iamsrk does what few wud do. Refunds 50% of the lack of distributors of his Dilwale. The film got sold at a premium cost. Yet, because of the controversies surrounding Shah Rukh’s comments on “extreme intolerance” in the united states, the movie did not get a suitable release at many places.
Right wing organisations protested against the screening of the picture and burnt effigies of the performer and the posters of the picture. Besides, the movie was likewise criticised for being overly innocent.
As a result, the overall domestic collection of the picture took a beating. Shah Rukh and Kajol were disappointed with the performance of their come-back film as onscreen couple.
The ‘Happy New Year’ celebrity had admitted to reporters, “I don’t believe the film has done as well as it should have. I am personally disappointed with that.”He added, “To be honest, it’s perhaps not done at the same time in India as I ‘d like it to do.
But overseas it has done well in lots of states like Germany, Austria. It’s rather thrilling that Indian movies are reaching wide and far.
There is plenty of business opportunities.”Before, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone returned an enormous sum to ‘Tamasha’ producers after the movie failed to get the predicted amount at the box-office.
Abhishek Bachchan also returned the fee of his 2012 picture ‘Players’ after the movie’s debacle. Aamir Khan had returned Rs 2 crore to Yash Raj Films when ‘Fanaa’ was prohibited due.
