Heard Amitabh Bachchan's Bbuddha, racing for a tentative July 1 or 8 release, is already in profit. A reliable trade source confirms that the film has been made at 10.2 crore.
"The post production on Bbuddha is happening at break neck speed. Amitabh has wrapped up his talkie portions and is said to be dubbing for it alongside Prakash Jha's Aarakshan that is due on August 12. And the satellite rights of the film have been sold reportedly at 14 crore! In other words, the film is a hit even before it hits the theatres."
Abhishek Bachchan, who is the producer, admits that the film has been made in the right budget. "It is a very sound investment," he says. So Big B's first box office hit of 2011 could well be on its way.
