Rangi Taranga has become the highest grossing Kannada film in the US. It has beaten the record of Mr and Mrs Ramachari. The share for the distributor so far is Rs 32 lakh. Though reports say the film has made over Rs 1 crore the actual profit is much less.
According to film distributors in US, the film's houseful collections in 32 shows are calculated thus.
In the 32 locations the film is screened houseful collection is $5,000 gross each. This will be
32 x 5,000 = $ 160,000 total.
The cost of print and KDM = 32 x 150 = $ 4800. The theatre rent/share is 50%. Thus 50% gross of $160,000 = $80,000 - 4800 = $75,200. This is subject to Tax of 30% = $75,200 *.30 = $22,560.
So the share will be 75,200 minus 22,560 = $ 52, 640. In Rupee terms $52,640 x 62 = Rs 32, 63, 680 for distributor total.
Even with all these deductions, Rangi Taranga is the highest grossing Kannada film in US so far.
