If my films fail, I’ll pay back the distributors: Ranbir Kapoor

Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor has said if his film fail at the box office and he as a producer makes money, he would compensate the distributors for the losses.

When asked about Salman Khan’s decision to refund distributors for the heavy losses they suffered on his Eid release ‘Tubelight’, Ranbir said “It has been going on since my grandfather’s (Raj Kapoor) time in 1950s.. the style of making films where everyone makes money, not just the producers but also distributors and exhibitors”

“It is a healthy exercise. If someone loses money on something and you have made money out of it, it’s good to compensate. But that depends on person to person and film to film” Ranbir added.

The actor also said his grandfather, Raj Kapoor, gave a bigger share to the distributors than the exhibitors (theatre owners).

“Like when Mera Naam Joker (1970 film) released, distributors incurred losses. So when Bobby released, my grandfather gave a bigger share to the distributors than the exhibitors. Personally, if my film fails and I am making money out of it, then I will pay back the distributors” he said.

Ranbir turns producer with his upcoming film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ which releases in theatres this weekend.



  • Shah Rukh producer understanding
    Ajay producer not surprising.
    Salman producer the world didnt end
    Aamir producer very normal
    All have reached the pinnacle of their acting career as established Superstars
    But RK producer? Beta concentrate more with your acting career you have not reached that level yet. Dont ruin your earnings.


  • Ranbir is the most adorable and generous star among the 20s to 40s age slot. Cant understand why Bhai fans loathe him so much.


  • very nice gesture
    by ranbir and ha nither he produced bombay velvet nor his film was sold with massive amounts like tubelight. so he is not responsible for bv


  • What abt Bombay Velvet?? I know he was not the producer bt he wud have convinced them to refund amount.after all it was the biggest disaster ever.


  • great gesture…
    When Phir bhi dil hai hinduatani failed SRK called distributors and gave them first right on Chalte Chalte…
    when paheli failed SRK gave distributors first right on OSO…
    when Dilwale failed SRK returned 50% losses and gave first right on his next film as a producer i.e Raees!!!!


  • @Y
    If you ever had been to school, by now you would have at least read the name of the producers of Bombay Velvet. He was not the producer.


  • jagga jasoos will be the biggest blockbuster so dont worry rk and all bhai fans who are trolling ranbir for bombay velvet distributor faced more losses in tubelight than bombay velvet so dont bark and jagga jasoos will easily surpass your fuselight oh i mean tubelight


  • Our outdated hero Rukh Rukh khan cant do it becoz her movies r continously rejectd he will become raees to bikhari…from world’s richest actor to slum dog


  • ranbir u should reestablish ur RK studio it has magnetism and public will attract more toward it because it is gererated by ur grandfather the showman… u just have to recharge it……


  • @ navina, abe BC hadn’t SRK compensated to Distributors of Dilwale ? You must lives in Pakistan as u don’t know anything of Bollywood


    • Abey BC#1 what about reimbursing us the neutral audience who watched his horror shows one Diwali after the other like Ratoon Point One 2011 n Jab Tak Hai Mojo 2012…!
