Box Office: Understanding the Economics of Qaidi Band and the losses for Yash Raj Films

Box Office Understanding the Economics of Qaidi Band and the losses for Yash Raj Films

The Habib Faisal directed film Qaidi Band released a while back. Featuring newcomers Aadar Jain and Anya Singh the film was never really expected to be a massive earner at the box office. However, Qaidi Band has performed rather badly at the domestic box office.

In this box office report we take a look at the profitability of Qaidi Band for its makers Yash Raj Films. Made on a budget of Rs. 21 cr (CoP Rs. 15 cr + P&A Rs. 6 cr) the film which released amid lacklustre promotions and low key hype has performed rather badly with total box office collections being pegged at Rs. 35 lakhs at the close of its first week. Given this subpar performance the makers of the film stand to make just Rs. 16 lakhs from the total box office earnings. However, Yash Raj Film has managed to draw in Rs. 15 cr from the sale of satellite (pre-sold to Sony), music and digital (acquired by Amazon) rights.

However, though usually YRF manages to recover most production expenses from the sale of the satellite rights and digital rights, with Qaidi Band the production house has made a loss of Rs. 5.84 Cr with a negative rate of return on investment of -27.82%.
