Business Touching 2000 Crore In First Three Quarters
The business of Hindi films in the domestic marked has neared the 2000 crore nett mark in the first three quarters. The equivalent business last year was 1725 crore which is an increase of around 15%.
The last quarter in 2012 was a slight downer despite adding 650 crore as films like Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Talaash and Khiladi 786 did not live up to expectations. The line up for the last quarter this year is just phenomenal and 1000 crore can easily be added in last three months. The comparison over the first three quarters in 2012 and 2013 is as follows. (No dubbed films included, only Hindi and Hinglish)
2012 - 1725 crore (119 releases)
2013 - 1975 crore (126 releases)
The final total in 2012 went to 2375 crore with 165 releases. The multiplex and digital revolution started in 2006 and in that year the collections were 925 crore nett. The business has increased three fold over the last seven years.
