Sardaar Gabbar Singh's flop show leaves T'wood bleeding

The lacklustre performance of the much-hyped `Sardaar Gabbar Singh` at the box-office has been a big blow to the Telugu film industry, with all stakeholders witnessing first-hand the downside of the spurt in big-budget films.

If reports are to be believed, the film was made with a budget of Rs 70 crore and distributors may have paid as much as Rs 100 crore to get distribution rights. However, indicating the extent of loss incurred, sources suggest that the amount recovered by them could be less than 25 per cent. The film is still in the first week of its release.

While distributors will be among the hardest hit, exhibitors will also have to incur huge losses.

The extent of the loss each theatre owner will have to bear will depend on the nature of agreements signed between distributors and exhibitors.
