From Ponniyin Selvan to Adipurush, you will be surprised to know the budget of these 5 movies!

There was a time when movies were made for less than a lakh rupees. Around independence, the budget for movies reached 10 lakhs. Until the 90’s, the biggest movie used to be made in Rs 20 to 40 crore, but now the budget of the movies has started to touch the sky. Not 100 or 200 million rupees, movies costing more than 500 million rupees have been released. Among these films, the name of the film ‘RRR’ by SS Rajamouli stands out, whose budget was 550 million rupees. As movie profits increased, filmmakers had the courage to make big investments. The film ‘Bahubali’ made a business of Rs 1800 crore, then so much money was invested in ‘RRR’.

In reality, many new avenues of obtaining films have now opened up. Previous filmmakers relied solely on the box office. But now, after many new media emerged, even movies that have flopped at the box office are stripping away their cost. Sometimes they also live off the profits. Take, for example, Akshay Kumar’s film ‘Samrat Prithviraj’. The budget of this film is around 220 million rupees. It has done a business of 65 million rupees at the box office. But the film has Rs 100 crore instead of the digital rights. Amazon Prime Video has bought the film. Seen this way, the film has earned more money on the digital platform than at the box office.

Due to the presence of modern technology in the process of making movies, the cost of movies is increasing. Along with this, the big movie stars have also increased their rates. Artists who worked in the first lakh rupees also increased their rates after their name was established. Stars like Akshay Kumar and Shahrukh Khan charge up to 100 million rupees for a movie. Not only this, Akshay also takes his share of the profits from the film. A large budget should be prepared for the preparation of the story, script, shooting, directing, acting, editing, and music for the film. After this, after the stars’ fees and the promotion of the film, the production cast increases significantly by the time of the premiere.
