It was quite shocking when he decided to remove YRF from distribution and got in Zee instead. Especially considering Tiger 3 is coming up.
230-250cr is a huge amount and will give a huge boost to Zee5 in terms of subscription once the film releases on OTT (after the theatrical release). Again, quite surprised with this as he had a deal with Amazon Prime.
It will be interesting how the film makes this recovery though. The music rights will be covered because of YouTube advertisements. A good chunk will be recovered from increase in subscription on Zee5. And maybe from Pay-per-view if the format is accepted for a Salman Khan film as it failed miserably for Khaali Peeli.
The remaining majority will have to come from theatrical release and this will be a minimum 200cr Nett collection which translates to 100-110cr Distributor Share. Getting such a number will be extremely difficult for any actor. Still 5 months to go, so lets see how the situation becomes.
Going to be difficult in such times, but SKF is very safe with this 250cr deal. Zee will be hoping things get better very soon
