Expectations were very high with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone's film Tamasha. But the film did an average business at the box office. Reportedly, Ranbir and Deepika have returned 15 Crores to the producers so that they do not suffer very high losses.
According to a report published in Miss Malini, ''Ranbir Kapoor has returned Rs. 10 crore to the producers of Tamasha, UTV and Sajid Nadiadwala. According to the trade pundits, Tamasha was sold to the distributors at a very high price due to the golden pairing of Deepika and Ranbir, but that made the movie a risky product.''
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone's Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani performed very well at the box office and the same was expected from their recent movie Tamasha.

Before the release of the movie, it was expected that it will perform very well at the Indian box office because of the golden pair of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

The report further stated that, even though the film received positive reviews from the critics, it didn't earn the kind of money expected of it, making it an 'average grosser'. To make the movie more viable for the producers, rumours are abuzz that Ranbir has returned approximately Rs 10 crores while Deepika Padukone has returned Rs 5 crores so that the distributors don't suffer very high losses.
In the past, when Deepika Padukone was asked about the average performance of Tamasha at the box office, she had said, "For me, right now sitting here, the very fact that you said that you liked the film, for me, is box office success. I am not an actor who has ever been involved with numbers.''
Deepika Padukone further added, ''I never have; I never intend to. So, for me, if you are sitting here now and telling me that you, as an audience, are disappointed that the film did not make numbers because you genuinely liked the film, I have done my job. What more does an actor want!"
