One of the most anticipated projects of this year Tubelight is releasing this Friday. The film stars Salman Khan and Sohail Khan in the lead roles. It has been directed by Kabir Khan and produced by SKF.

Tubelight Budget:

As per the sources close to the film, Tubelight has been made on a budget of 95 cr (excluding Salman’s fee). The market value of Salman is around 55-60 crore so the actual value of the budget will be 150-155 crores.

It is releasing in approx 4400 screens in India. While in overseas it is likely to be the be the widest Bollywood release ever. The filmmakers are targeting to release it in 50 plus overseas territories and it is already the biggest release in some markets.

Tubelight Economics:

The makers are in the safe zone by selling the film at a record price. The non-theatrical recovery was also pretty good. Now it will up to NH Studioz to recover the high price. Tubelight will be a successful film for all parties involved after crossing 250 crores only.

  • Satellite Rights: 55 Cr
  • Music rights: 20 Cr
  • Digital Rights: N/A
  • Other: 8 Cr
  • Distributor Price: 132 Cr
  • Overseas Rights: 38 Cr
  • Recover Costs: 250 Cr


Last year when we reported about Sultan, only sky was the limit as far the buzz was concerned. This is not the case with Tubelight which is probably due to the average promos. Though the buzz has increased after the release of couple of new tracks which hint at strong emotional content. It will be a good start if the film crosses 25 crore on opening day considering the pre-Eid release period.
