Bombay Velvet Box Office Collections: Biggest Disaster of all time

Bombay Velvet will end its run at the box office this week as the mother of all disasters. The film is set to lose around 90 crore of its investment.

No film in the history of Indian Cinema has lost the kind of money that the distributors of the film (Fox Star Studios) will lose on the Ranbir Kapoor – Anushka Sharma starrer. It will be difficult for any film in the next 3-4 years to incur losses that Bombay Velvet has.

Some staggering facts:

  • A loss of around Rs 90 crore for the distributors is equivalent to a film collecting Rs 180 crore net at the domestic box office.
  • Since the film is set to finish with lifetime business of around 23 crore, the distributors share will be less than half of the marketing costs!
  • Even when the overseas and Indian collections are combined, Bombay Velvet will still fall short of recovering money spent on marketing the film.
  • Before Bombay Velvet, Ranbir Kapoor has featured in 11 films in his career. 7 films were profitable ventures. But the losses of Bombay Velvet is more than the combined profits of all Ranbir Kapoor films excluding ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.
  • Anushka Sharma has now featured in the industry’s biggest grosser of all time (PK) and followed it up with the biggest disaster of all time (Bombay Velvet).
  • Anurag Kashyap has directed 13 movies in his career. Only one was profitable (Dev D). But the losses of Bombay Velvet is nearly 10 times the profit of the cult classic starring Abhay Deol.

Clearly, the very decision to give a director like Anurag Kashyap, a humongous budget of Rs 120 crore+ has backfired big time. It has also affected the career of Ranbir Kapoor, because this will also be his first disaster and could go on to be his lowest grosser. Ranbir though, has a solid line-up of upcoming films and has also got the acting talent to make a strong comeback.

  • He is the ugliest in whole Kapoor clan! This family has grown in reverse. Each generation had less class, education ,acting chops, and subsequently less good looking. From the towering Parthaviraj Kapoor,to multi talented Raj Kapoor,to less talented but handsome Shammi , Shashi and Rishi, to the completely fake and talentless Randheer daughters ,and now to this Kapoor. No looks or talent!

  • Such a sad news for Salman & salman’s fans as Bombay-velvet failed to beat the record of All time Industry disaster ‘Marigold’..

  • Wrong. All time disaster wala jo coloumn hota hai usme hum bold aur capital me MARIGOLD likhte hai. Lol

  • hahahahahahaha

    I already said that Don’t call Ranbir a Super Star, accept it that Ranbir is lower than B Grade stars like Emran Shahid Raveer Arjun.

  • Sawariya disaster…
    Bachna e hasino ..flop..
    Besharam disaster…
    Roy flop…
    Anjana anjani flop …
    Rockstar above average…

    And then….

    Bombay velvet..

    Out of 12 films (including ROY)…
    7 are flops,averages,, or big disasters…

    Reliance lost a big amount during besharam…. And some exhibitors have been reported to have committed suicide after than hevay debacle of BEsharam….!!…

    Only 5 successes in 13 films….that too because of Deepika…Oscar controversies.. Media backing..KAPOOR surname….
    Ranbir is truly overrated….!!…
    Even aftab shivdasni wud hv made YJHD a hit…..!..

    Tamasha if it by mistake becomes a HIT (small chance…) then all credit should go to deepika….!….
    Ranvver singh is also nothin widout deepika… His non-deepika films r also big disasters….!!..

    Dil dhadakne do is also multi-starrer… But it has Flop written all over it… Due to bad content….

  • Its due to poor marketing and unpopular songs that BV failed. But it was a great experiment. Without Ranbir, the films lifetime would have been in lakhs only.
    Ranbir’s stardom is unaffected, Besharam opened to 21 crores on first day, inspite of no big actress and popular songs. If that is not stardom, what is?

  • deepika next movie prediction..
    tamasha – 125 cr
    Movie will work just bcoz of Deepika…
    Result is piku…
    bajirao mastani – 110 cr
    dilwale collection will definitely affected by bajirao mastani…

  • huge shame for all youngistaan and rk fans.6 out of our last 7 films hv been flops with bv becoming an epic disaster.
    anyways it’s time to learn from our mistake and make an epic comeback(hopefully next month with ddd and abcd2)

  • Some Akki fans are happy about BV failure.
    They dont know, Akki has given huge flops, if I list them, one page would be insufficient.
    Akki has failed to cross 15 crore on first day, what a shameful thing. Ranbir gave 21 crore on day one without big actress or music.

  • @Salman haters,
    At least Marigold earned 1 crore lifetime, while our Srks YLJK did 35 lakhs lifetime. Disaster of history. LOL

  • Ranbir is way bigger than Akki.
    Akki highest grosser: Rowdy rathore (130 cr)
    Ranbir highest grosser: YJHD (180 cr)

    Ranbir has given 21 cr on first day,
    Akki has not given even 15 cr on first day.

  • Lemme clarify to those nuts who are considering Marigold in this list,First of all its a Hollywood movie which later got dubbed into Hindi,perhaps ur hero is only exception for semiporn films but forget about him in a Hollywood film that too in a lead role.Now chill maya memsaab’s,yeh lamhe hain judaai ke ! oh darling yeh hai India.

  • Biggest disaster of all time is Yeh Lamhe Judai Ke starring queen. It had a lifetime business of 35-40 lakhs.

  • I pity on guyz like @nipun… Who is big fan of ranbir … And who likes bad music…..!!….
    My advice to him is don’t lick the feet of so called Kapoor ‘s wasted spoon-fed kid….. N concentrate on his Papa Boy roshan ……

  • @nipun… @sambudha….
    I pity on guyz like @nipun… Who is big fan of ranbir … And who likes bad music…..!!….

    My advice to him is don’t lick the feet of so called Kapoor ‘s wasted spoon-fed kid….. N concentrate on his Papa Boy roshan ……

  • @indicine
    Plz update star ranking now.
    And i m not found it where is this star ranking update

  • Hope this lose will cover by this three Flims and by this four main lead hero
    Emraan -HAK
    Salman -BB
    Akshay-Siddharth – Brothers

  • Ranbir Kapoor is not a super-star. Even Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer made better business with not-so-popular Finding Fanny & Kill Dill. Even Sushant Singh Rajput made a way better business than RK. Deepika single-handedly made PIKU a hit.

    His lifetime collections don’t even cross HNY’s 1st day n u compare him with SRK.

    Ranbir Kapoor is in the same league as Emraan, Ranveer, Riteish, Arjun, Sushant etc…

  • Ye to hona hi thaa……..ha :, ye to hona hi tha……ho :, ye to hona hona.. honaaaaaa hiii thaaaaa…………..hye.

  • @Ranbir roxx
    Akshay had nt got any national holiday on the frist day and in non holiday he is giving 13 cr. And ranbir give just 5.2 cr. With the budget of 120 cr. And with the one of the top heroine anushka so the ranking r below. …
    1. Aamir
    2. Salman
    3. Srk
    4. Hrithik
    5. Akshay
    6. Ajay
    7. Ranbir
    8. Siddharth
