Salman Khan who has given the highest 100 crore club movies and giving hit over hit movies from the last one decade was failed to give boom to the tubelight.
Salman Khan will pay the loss of Tubelight’s Copyright Distributors
Recently, there were reports that several producers and distributors were demanding monetary compensation from Salman. According to trade analyst Komal Nahta, the star has now agreed to pay the distributors.
He took to Twitter and shared the news via a tweet, in which he wrote, “Salman Khan has agreed to refund monies to distributors to make up for losses in Tubelight. A lovely gesture. That’s being human!”
Now days Salman Khasn is busy in the shooting of Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai.
Salman Khan’s father and veteran writer Salim Khan also confirmed the development. He told mid-day, “When a distributor suffers a loss, the producer needs to show some responsibility and share the burden. We, too, have done the same thing. We met a few of them and are trying to find a middle ground. We will pay back the distributors”.
However there is no official announcement regarding the figures but the a report of Bollywood Hungama states that it would be 50% of the total loss.
“Whenever there’s a problem or a discussion, the final decision is mine. Even when I was working, after Javed (former scriptwriting partner Javed Akhtar) and I parted ways, I returned my share of the signing amount of all the films we had signed together. Some films work, some don’t, but in this case the losses were comparatively higher. Even though Tubelight did a business of over Rs 100 crore, it did not justify the price for which it was bought. This way, a large part of the losses will be covered, and from the distributors to the exhibitors, everyone down to the last person in the chain, has been compensated,” Salim Khan told a Mumbai Mirror correspondent.
