If my films fail, I'll pay back the distributors: Ranbir Kapoor

+2 votes

Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor has said if his film fail at the box office and he as a producer makes money, he would compensate the distributors for the losses.

When asked about Salman Khan’s decision to refund distributors for the heavy losses they suffered on his Eid release ‘Tubelight’, Ranbir said “It has been going on since my grandfather’s (Raj Kapoor) time in 1950s.. the style of making films where everyone makes money, not just the producers but also distributors and exhibitors”

“It is a healthy exercise. If someone loses money on something and you have made money out of it, it’s good to compensate. But that depends on person to person and film to film” Ranbir added.

The actor also said his grandfather, Raj Kapoor, gave a bigger share to the distributors than the exhibitors (theatre owners).

“Like when Mera Naam Joker (1970 film) released, distributors incurred losses. So when Bobby released, my grandfather gave a bigger share to the distributors than the exhibitors. Personally, if my film fails and I am making money out of it, then I will pay back the distributors” he said.

Ranbir turns producer with his upcoming film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ which releases in theatres this weekend.

lol........attention seeker

No he isn't. Media is shit. .he didn't even talk about his movie. Media asked him about Salman compensating the losses of Distributors for Tubelight and asked his reaction whether he would do it too for his movies .first he said -Bhai pehle movie toh release hone de. Loss ki baat mat kro.then he said about how Distributors are Being compensated for years and if any of his movies fail he will also do it

as if anybody cares......in the middle, left reading ur comment....write something abt a superstar n then we all will read....oops....forgot.....Ranbir himself is a superstar

I say this is a Megastar statement. Distributors needs to be saved. There must be some fixed fees for distributing a film to be paid by producer.

Producer do get overflows bro depending on deal.

thats good then........i didn't know that.....but i do think that neither Baahubali or Dangal got those overflows.....or any big film did???any big film which was sold to distributors

Baahubali was sold on commission to AA films. AA films paid 75cr while we're meant to get 10% commission. Npw film earned 254 share in India which means around 25cr commission.
So AA films will keep 75cr advance they paid and commission they got while pass the rest 154cr to producers.
Dangal was Disney's own film.

thnx for more info brother
