100 crore club thing of the past: Bhushan Kumar
Chairman and Managing Director of T-Series has had a good run with business in the last two years and 2013 looks to be promising too for this music baron.
This year T-series is producing a host of films including Aashiqui 2, Nautanki Saala, I Love New Year and wife Divya Khosla Kumar's directorial debut-Yaariyan. With so much at stake, the music and film producer expresses his thoughts on the 100 crore club. "100 crore club is a thing of the past. Costing has gone up and producers need to recover the money. 200 crore club is the new target. All big films have to do a 120-130 crore business because there has to be some profit to the producer. Usually theirs is a 10-12% profit margin depending on the budget spent. If a film is made in 50 crores, the producer can take back 5-10 crores." says Bhushan.
Adding, "Any actor can enter this club, as far as the film is commercial and loved by masses. If a new comer like Ayushmann Khurrana can do 45 crores in his first film Vicky Donor, then it means that a good actor and good content works. No one was expecting Barfi! to touch 100 crores but the film had a superb script and music. Besides, Ranbir Kapoor was fantastic and the film went that way".
