Not long ago, it was being said that Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone had paid the distributors of ��Tamasha�۪ (2015) money back due to the film not achieving as much as planned at the box office. This was later denied. However, now a similar buzz is surrounding Shah Rukh Khan as it is being said that he has returned losses of 50% to the distributors of ��Dilwale�۪ (2015) which also struggled when it released.
Khan�۪s comments about intolerance were, in many regions of India, detrimental to the success the film could have seen. As such, it is thought Khan wants to account for the losses. Trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted, ���SRK does what few wud do. Refunds 50% of the loss of distributors of his Dilwale. That’s what u call a considerate producer.�
Khan was a co-producer of the film and it seems he feels that the distributors should not be the only ones who carry the losses made.
