Kick 2, Dabangg 3 and Bharat were yet to start so there isn’t much monetary loss. “‘Race 3’ is almost complete, only dubbing is left so I don’t think any of the films would be affected by the verdict… As other films have just been announced,” Mehra said. “There is about Rs 400 crore riding on him, including Rs 150 crore on ‘Race 3’ and signing amounts and rights of films such as ‘Bharat’, ‘Dabangg 3’ etc and the TV show ‘Dus Ka Dum’ and TV commercials,” Amod Mehra, trade analyst, told PTI. “All his films make a minimum of Rs 200 crore. Trade analyst Girish Wankhede also maintains that it is a big blow to the industry as Salman has been extremely profitable as a brand with back-to-back blockbusters to his credit.
