One would agree to core that ‘Gabbar Singh’ is a mind-blowing hit which showcased the powerful commercial stamina of Pawan Kalyan. When producer Bandla Ganesh Babu has skipped the historical episode of revealing total collection figures, independent trade sources have gone at their will to come up with their own numbers. Any figure between Rs.50 and 60 Crores by start of fourth week would have been a realistic share number for ‘Gabbar Singh.’
(Un)fortunately, a top and latest business analysis portal ‘business-standard.com’ has gone to the extent of reporting a staggering collection of Rs.128.75 Crores in just three weeks run for ‘Gabbar Singh,’ putting the domestic and global markets together. A matter of fact is, ‘Dabangg’ being the original to ‘GS’ has grossed just over Rs.173 Crores. If gross is Rs.128.75 Croes, by the vague rule of Tollywood...share should be at the least 55 to 58% of gross which means share of 'GS' would end up nearly at Rs.70 Crores.
(Actually, Gross = Total Collections (Number of tickets Sold multiplied by Ticket Price), Nett = Gross - Entertainment Tax, Share = Net – Theatre Rent and Other Miscellaneous Expenditure and Profit = Share – Production Costs Involved in making the Film).
Though unbelievable and impractical, Power Star Fans are happy to hear the news while the shocked trade sources in industry aren’t mindful in calling these collection reports as ‘Paid’ or ‘Fake’ and not the ‘Original.’ Alone Ganesh Babu can answer the reliability and range of ‘GS.’
