When a film is a flop or fails to perform well at the box office, the producer, distributor, and production company suffer tremendously, while the actors (all actors, including male and female leads, supporting casts, etc.) and the rest of the film’s crew, such as the director, assistant director, music director, lyricist, director of photography, and others, suffer little, as they are paid their fees by the producer of the film well before its release. A box-office bomb, often known as a box-office flop, is a film that is generally known to be severely unsuccessful or unprofitable during its theatrical run.
To produce a film, one must be extremely wealthy. Whether he will remain wealthy or not is dependent on the outcome of the film. The function of the distributor is to purchase the completed film from the producer and sell it to theatres for public viewing. If the film does well at the box office, the profits are split between the producers and distributors.
Here are some biggest flops of Bollywood. Bombay Velvet had a budget of Rs 120 crores but only grossed Rs 43 crores at the box office. The film Saawariya, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was a snooze fest with the only redeeming feature being the songs. However, the movie bombed at the box office, grossing only Rs 36 crores. Kites, which had a budget of Rs 90 crores, only managed to raise Rs 48 crores in revenue. Yuvraj, which starred Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Zayed Khan, and Boman Irani, was a big flop, grossing only Rs 16 crores the budget was 50 crore.
