Befikre Budget, Screen Count, Economics: YRF Statement

Befikre Budget, Screen Count, Economics

Starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, Befikre marks the comeback of Aditya Chopra as a director. It is Adi's first directional without Shahrukh Khan in the lead. The film has been in the news due to its bold theme.


Befikre Budget:

Yash Raj Films has released the official budget of the film. The production cost of the film is about 55 crore and more 15 cr has been spent on marketing. The makers will also get a rebate from Paris which will reduce costs further.


Befikre Screen Count:

Befikre will have a good release in around 2100 screens only. The makers will target multiplexes in metros mostly due to the genre. But as per the official statement released by YRF, around 35% single screens have been booked for Befikre.


Befikre Economics:

Yash Raj Films will be distributing the film themselves. Befikre is a very much a safe bet as far the economics are concerned. In fact the producers will earn good profits even if the film fails at the box office. Minimum 40 crore will be recovered through music, satellite and digital rights. Then it will get a good share from overseas too. Thus whole investment is already recovered pre-release and all the box office collection will be its profits.

Still the film's verdict will be decided on the box office numbers. Check out the economics of the film below.

  • Hit: 85 Cr
  • Super Hit: 115 Cr
  • Blockbuster: 170 Cr


Befikre Buzz:

Despite the poor response to the promo, the music of the film has become a big hit which will help to take a good initial. Ranveer Singh is coming back after big hit Bajirao Mastani. Adi also enjoys a good following in cities. Thus it is enjoying a pretty good buzz among youth.

We are expecting it to open at 30%.

      1. Yah it can if it has good WOM, but I'm expecting mixed WOM. I dont think this movie will cater to family audiences due to too many intimate scenes.

  1. 11+ Cr opening day , 35 - 37+ cr weekend, 76-80+ Lifetime, 100+ Worlwide collection . Let's see <3

  2. When it comes to YRF films all figures are fabricated. I dont think movie can reach somewhere near 90 cr. If it shows than nothing more than publicity stunt.

  3. hey bollyarena kya yeh film dishoom ko haraa sakti hai because for that it should cross 70 cr.

  4. 10-12 crores in the opening day
    25-30 crores in first weekend
    70-75 crores will be the lifetime box office collection.

  5. Kya bat hai #Bollyarena, earlier you have posted that it will realize around 2800 screen and today morning you posted about 1500 n now 2100 what is real figure of screen n same of budget.
