How much did Buddha cost?

The exact numbers from the makers of Buddha Hoga Tera Baap are contradictory. Here is our analysis..

  • According to Viacom 18, the cost of Buddha including the actor fee, director fee, print and makerting is around 21 crores.
  • According to Amitabh Bachchan himself, the cost (including print, marketing costs) to produce and release Buddha Hoga Tera Baap was around 17 crores.
  • Both agree that 75% of the investment has been recovered before the film’s release. 75% of 17 crores is 12.75 crores. 75% of 21 crores is 15.75
  • Music and satellite rights fetched Rs 14.75 crores. So, even though 75% could be just an approximate figure, its closer to the figure provided by Viacom 18.
