Jazbaa has turned out to be a profitable venture for all involved. After its one week run, the film has gone past the recovery mode and is now stepping into the profit zone.
Here is the Break Up of the estimated numbers:
Landing cost (cost of production plus P&A) – 33 crore
Recovery so far: 33.6 crore
· Week One India theatrical share – 11.4 crore
· Week One Overseas theatrical share – 4.2 crore
· Satellite and music – 14 crore
· Digital, In-film and Syndication – 4 crore
The film has entered its second week and whatever comes from this point is bonus for all involved.
Girish Johar of Zee says, “We are pretty happy to be in a profitable position in Week One itself. This isn’t the end of it all though as there are many more markets and rights to be explored. You would be hearing a lot around the reach and penetration of Jazbaa in other markets. Weeks to come are quite exciting for us. It is a win-win situation for all partners.”
Directed by Sanjay Gupta, Jazbaa stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Irrfan and Shabana Azmi in key roles. In terms of nett collections from India theatrical, the film has accumulated 22.4 crore so far and is still counting.
