Hrithik Roshan, starrer Krrish 3 has the multiplex owners and the distributors fighting over the profit share margins due to its release that is all set for Diwali release. During that period there is no other release 12 days after and two weeks before, usually the distributors and the producers claim about 52.5% of the total Box Office collections and later the multiplex owners take the remaining amount.
As per sources, “The distributors want to up their stake by claiming the 12-day window as the first week. They are demanding for their 52.5 per cent share for all of the 12 days. However, the multiplex owners want to break the period into two parts – the first with the four days and the second with the customary seven days.” That way, experts say the exhibitors will stand to gain on the film’s collections.
A trade analyst says that the final decision on the amounts would be taken a day or two before the release. He states, “Right now is too early for this.”
Let them fight, Hrithik fans are awaiting for their heroes next eagerly.
