In India people live with a perception that if we print big numbers then the film is surely going to be a hit .. However this is not true in all cases.. says Producer Vipul Shah of Commando 2 who is excited about his new film starring Vidyut Jammwal when he was talking about his film during an interview. He went on to stay that the film business is like any other and is decided on its return on investment and the public perception is different from the actual reality.
The big figures indicates a hit film by printing bigger numbers. There are films that have been declared Rs. 100 crore but have actually lost a good amount of money . quoting an example the producer says if Rs. 1.20 crores is spent on the film in the making of it, and you earn Rs. 100 crore where is the profit ? On the other hand if the film is being made on a small budget say, 20 crore and the returns run into an 80 crore collection then that is a super hit film. The box office collections largely depends on the collection at the end of the day.
