Akshay Kumar is having a hard Time facing the Heat of Producers and Distrubutors after Joker Failed badly at the Box office . One of the Reasons of the Failure was Akki’s Complete absence in Promoting Movie.
Film cost around Rs 55cr, satellite rights were sold for about Rs 14 cr and the estimated losses amount to Rs 20cr. Trade analyst Suniel Wadhwa said, “The film was discontinued after the first week due to non-performance. Most distributors have lost nearly 60 per cent of their money.”
Distributor Sunny Khanna, told us, “The brand lost only because of Akshay’s unprofessional behaviour and I definitely want compensation from him. He should learn from Emraan Hashmi, who is ready to promote an old film like Rush. Had Akshay promoted Joker, the film’s business would’ve gone up by 40 per cent.”
South India-based distributor cited the example of Rajinikanth and said Akshay should refund the money the way Rajini did when his films flopped at the BO. Readers may recall that Rajini had agreed to pay back theatres 33 per cent of the amount for which his film Kuselan was sold in the Tamil Nadu territory.
He also repaid distributors the money after another film Baba flopped. Ramesh Vyas, who distributed Joker in the CI (Central India) Circuit was of the same opinion.
We Hope Khiladi Akshay Kumar will take a Lesson from this .
