Can 'Lion' Reach Break Even?

Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna's 'Lion' was made with a huge budget of Rs.35 crores. However, the makers have released it with a deficit of Rs.10 crores by selling it out to around Rs.25 crores. Instead of NRA basis, buyers preferred to acquire the rights of the movie on advance basis in many areas. 

According to the trade reports, the movie collected a share of Rs.12.30 crores at the end of its first weekend run world wide. The movie should accumulate Rs.35+ crores to fetch profits to everyone who is associated with the movie including produces, buyers and exhibitors. If the movie collects Rs.25+ crores, the buyers can safely avoid losses with the movie.
