A question was asked on BOI as why Kaabil & Rustom's budget were above 50 Cr, while makers reported 40-50 Cr, to which BOI replied as you can't have a film under 50 cr for Hrithik & Akshay Kumar or else everyone will make films. Also for Ajay's Baadshaho & all Salman films they add STAR FEES:

1. PRDP = Makers spend 120-130 Cr, BOI Added 50 Cr of Salman = 180 Cr Budget

2. Baadshaho = 86 Cr

3. Tubelight = Cost of film 80 Cr (by BOI) + they added Salman's fees = 135 Cr

4. Raees = 127 Cr = It includes Srk's fees?

5. JHMS = 117 Cr = It also includes Srk's fees?

Now why on Earth does BOI has given Budget for Dear Zindagi & Secret Superstar below 50 Cr?

Dear Zindagi = 46 Cr

Secret Superstar = 45 Cr

Just to benefit these 2 stars to get good verdict?

Why wonder? Haven't they changed the flops and below average verdicts of Srk starrers into successful movies?

Do you think makers of DZ spent 46cr on the movie excluding SRK's fees? And do you think an extended cameo will have the same fees as a full fledged role?

he has a much smaller role, so a portion of his salary is included.

A movie like DZ is not made for more than 20-25cr.

LMAO, so as per % of role, their fees is included, it means Srk's fees is 40 Cr? if they added 20 Cr in Budget?

Give me a break man, whatever face value DZ had, was coz of SRK, it earned to it's max coz of him & u exclude his fees by half?

U mean DZ earned $ 10 M Overseas & only Srk contributed 50%?


you have to take it by the amount of days he spent on the movie. they are bound to be much less than his full fledged movie, so why would his full market value be taken?


Earning is full on, so their market value should be also the same. You tell, does DZ would have earned this much without SRK?

Bro both dz and SS have half market value of Srk and aamir in their budgets

answered by Production Accountant (22.3k points)

Jab Earning FULL Mein aa rahi ho, toh credit kion half kiya jaaye?

Does this apply to MAMK kind of films where Salman also had extended roles not full fledge roles?


Yes BOI should reduce the budget of Sawariya, mamk on their site coz Salman was in supporting roles

Aren't DZ and SS produced by the production house of SRK and Aamir respectively? So is it like they would take the money from their own account and put it in their account again?

answered by Director (135k points)

Akshay Produces most of his films, almost all except for 1-2, why is it his films budget over 50?

Salman had Bajrangi, Tubelight, why was Salman's market value added?

BOI always add, even for JHMS which is SRK Film & Dangal which is Aamir film.


Yeah maybe they really didn't charged for these movies knowing it needs to be low budget


Bhai, BOI add remuneration to show "Fair market value" that film, where star didn't take fees.
And Verdict is not depend on that Value (BOI Budget).
BOI budget ka verdict se koi relation hota to, BOI Golmaal again (budget : 142cr) ko 171cr plus pe Blocbuster declare nahi karta.
