The total budget of Dil Bechara is approximately Rs 25 to 30 crore. This budget may vary from country to country as the film is released on a combination of different media. Although it was initially predicted to make 100 crores in box office, it is now being released on OTT platforms and has only made 12 crores profit. Its overall budget has earned it the title of a hit Bollywood movie. Read on for more details on the film’s budget.
The movie’s makers had expected 50 million viewers, but the streaming site Disney+ has revealed that it’s already crossed 75 million views within 24 hours. Dil Bechara is now the most-viewed Ott platform movie in India, surpassing the record of “Tata Steel”.
The film’s original title reflects the characters’ poverty and hardship. Kizie, a disadvantaged youth, is struggling to make ends meet. Her father, an alcoholic, tries to help her. Despite the difficulties they face, she carries on and works to help Manny and himself. The film is based on a novel by John Green and stars the iconic Sushant Singh Rajput. It’s also a re-telling of a love story.
The film’s budget was estimated to be around Rs 25 to 30 crore. Another Rs 8 to 10 crore would have gone to music and publicity rights. If it had been released in the theaters, Dil Bechara would have made over Rs 950 crore. But there’s still no way to make an apples-to-apples comparison between the two budgets. Overall, a ticket cost in India in 2019 is about Rs 100.
After being delayed due to the coronavirus issue, the film will be distributed via OTT platforms like Disney and Hotstar. Disney and Hotstar have already purchased the rights to the movie, and the film will earn a further 50 crores if it’s shown on these platforms. It’s anticipated that Dil Bechara will be watched by at least 50 million people on OTT. That will be a major profit for the movie’s producers.
The Dil Bechara budget includes the cast, directors, and producers. The film is inspired by the bestselling novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green. It stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi. It is Chabra’s directorial debut. In fact, it was Rajput’s last movie. He died soon after the filming concluded. The movie budget for Dil Bechara was approximately Rs 15 million.
