Why Mausam May Not Cover Its Cost

September 26th, 2011 by Komal Nahta

There's a misconception in the industry that Mausam has cost Rs. 60 crore to make, promote and release. The fact, however, is that the investment of Sheetal Talwar and Eros International in the film is not more than Rs. 42-45 crore. Given this, the first day's opening figures weren't as bad as the trade was making it out to be. Actually, it is not the entire trade but a few loud-mouthed people in the industry who were going on and on about how the film had opened to disastrous houses. Probably, they were unaware of both, the first day's collections and the total cost of Mausam.

The Mausam Economics (Mausam Movie Stills)

Mausam Economics

The cost of Mausam, as mentioned, is Rs. 42-45 crore without counting Shahid Kapoor's remuneration for the film. Satellite rights have fetched around Rs. 12-13 crore and the music rights must have sold for around Rs. 5 crore. Thus, Pankaj Kapoor's film requires at least Rs. 25-27 crore from Indian and overseas theatrical business to break even. As Mausam has raked in Rs. 22 crore (all-India net collection) over the first weekend, the weekend business (distributors share) is only Rs. 11 crore. Therefore, it may not cover cost. And the cost reportedly does not include Shahid's remuneration as he charged nominal fee only. If we include that, loss will be bigger.

Mausam: 10 Things You Didn't Know About The Film

September 21st, 2011 by Team

Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor's epic love story, Mausam, is all set to hit theatres on September 23. Here are 10 things you didn't know about the film:

Too Many Retakes For Shahid Kapoor

The shooting process was arduous. For one particular scene, where Shahid was required to run through snow, the actor had to take 8-10 retakes before the shot could be finalised. In fact, shooting in the cold conditions was so difficult that it took the film crew three days to picturise the whole scene!

Sonam's Fashion Lessons For Shahid

Sonam, who is known as a fashionista, gave Shahid Kapoor many fashion tips during the making of Mausam. She used to potter around Shahid's house and decide which clothes he would wear for interviews and press meets.

Birthday Gift Mausam

The script of Mausam was director Pankaj Kapur's gift to his actor-son, Shahid Kapoor. As a return gift on his father's birthday, Shahid gave the nod for his father's first Bollywood film as director.

Sonam's Sick Leave

Everyone knows that Mausam was in the making for almost two years. However, as opposed to the many rumours doing the rounds, the shooting of the movie took extra time due to lead actress Sonam Kapoor's illnesses! Yes, Sonam fell sick on more than one occasion during the shooting of Mausam. This, unfortunately, entailed the cancellation of shooting.

"Less Is More"

During the shooting of Mausam, Shahid learnt a valuable lesson from father-director Pankaj Kapur, "Less is more in acting". The veteran actor taught Shahid that he need not emote each and every expression on screen.

No Shooting For Shahid

Sasha couldn't shoot for the first two days on the sets of Mausam because of the rains in Scotland. As a result, he spent the first few days roaming around the sets in his pilot uniform and Ray-Bans. He finally got to shoot with his father and Sonam on the third day.

Deciding Shahid's Looks

While Sonam may have been the fashionista on the sets, Shahid Kapoor's look was completely Pankaj Kapur's idea. He decided that a side parting and glares would go with Shahid's officer-look.

No Flying

Everyone knows that Shahid Kapoor flew a fighter jet ' an F-16 ' for his role as a pilot in the film. But in real life, the Kaminey star isn't really fond of flying and avoids it as much as possible!

Silence Please!

While Sonam is quite a talkative person, Shahid is more on the quiet side. Before any important scene, Sonam would get nervous and talk non-stop. Shahid, on the other hand, preferred silence. Even though he tried to quieten  her down, Sonam continued to verbally diffuse her nervousness.

Eros International eyes 30% growth this year on new films

Q: The film Mausam got ripped apart by most of the critics, has it done you a lot of good?

A: This film is by far the biggest opening for Shahid. It's a complete family entertainer and he gave a very good performance considering it was solo hero film. For the last weekend, we did a business of about Rs 41 crore gross worldwide and we released this movie on more than 2,000 centers across the world.

Moreover, it was a very economically budgeted film. It's already a profitable venture for us because of our de-risking approach as we already had pre-licensed website and other monetisation revenues of the film. So, we covered most of the cost before the movie got released. I think we will be seeing more numbers around it.

Set against a landscape that transcends decades and spans continents, Mausam is a classic journey that transports one into a world of indestructible bonds of love enveloped by the roulette of destiny.
