Yes you read it right! Shahrukh Khan has taken the responsibility of Dilwale's poor box office collection and has returned 50 percent of the money to the movie's distributers.
Famous trade analyst Komal Nahata confirmed the news and wrote on microblogging site Twitter, ''@iamsrk does what few wud do. Refunds 50% of the loss of distributors of his Dilwale. That's what u call a considerate producer!''
Earlier there was a news that even Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor returned 15 Crores to the producers of Tamasha beacuse the film did not perform well at the Indian box office. Now Shahrukh Khan too, has returned 50 percent of the money to the distributers for Dilwale.
Trade analyst Kumar Mohan also confirmed the news and told First Post, "I appreciate whatever Shahrukh has done. If the film doesn't do well, why always the distributor should face losses.''
''It's a big step from Shahrukh's side and I believe this will turn into a practise. I am not saying it will become a trend but this should come into practice," he said.
Shahrukh Khan also confessed in one of his interviews, "I don't think the film has done as well as it should have. I am personally disappointed with that.''
The actor further added, "To be honest, it has perhaps not done as well in India as I would like it to do. But overseas it has done very well in a lot of countries like Germany, Austria. It is quite thrilling that Indian films are reaching far and wide. There is a lot of business opportunities.''
