Thanks to a combination of Akshay Kumar’s willingness to work for a modest fee and canny deal making by the producers, the Bollywood star’s latest filmJolly LLB 2will start generating profits from today, the first day of release.
.
Fox Star Studios fully recouped the 30 crore ($4.5 million) production budget and 15 crore ($2.2 million) P&A spend by reaping a total of 45 crore ($6.7 million) for the satellite, music and digital rights
.
Fox Star Studios CEO Vijay Singh Said - “Akshay is one of the few stars who understands the business of movie-making.
.
“He understands the need to make films on a tight budget, and therefore [knows] the importance of actors charging a flat fee, which has resulted in our film being profitable.
.
This is how the business model of all films should be structured. It becomes a win-win for everyone, and will make the film industry sustainable.”
.
Kumar will share in the back-end profits. Star has the satellite rights and T-Series bought the music rights.

Akshay took 40cr for this movie. Add that to 45cr. That's almost 90cr investment.
Lets see how much profitable movie becomes after they renegotiate the satellite rights...and theatrical run ends. Even mohenjodaro was sold at around 50cr to TV but ended up yielding 20cr after its box office result.

Akki charges a hefty amount.
so no way its budget is so less.May be his B-grade movies' production cost is so less that it justifies his salary.
