I'm confused. I'm reading that the interview with Anupama Chopra Deepika said the budget of Piku is 10 crores..so what's with some articles saying it's 30+ crores? Confused

Shoojit even gave same interviews on how him and his producers have spent minimum and realize budget control etc...so the idea of the budget being so high seems weird Confused

it's 30+ crores... film with deepika, amitabh and irfan cannot be made in 10 crores...

http://www.boxofficecapsule.com/collection/1st-Day-Box-Office-Collection-Of-PIKU-3579

''40 cr nett lifetime required to recover costs including ancillary rights and it seems that it will achieve that. ''

with satellite rights and music, it will earn 10-20 crs... so basically, profit starts around 30 crs.. at 50-60 crs nett india boxoffice, it will be hit, 70-80 crs superhit, 81-100 crores blockbuster

It's confusing too becuase there's no extravagant set, foreign location, no khans to charge bomb but there are articles around being it high budget movie around 30 cr
Though none are very reliable source
