After his film Jab Harry Met Sejal flopped at the box office, the film’s producer and actor Shah Rukh Khan has come to the rescue of the distributors. According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan has refunded several distributors of his latest film, Jab Harry Met Sejal after it failed to perform well at theatres.

According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Shah Rukh has compensated 15% of the losses to NH Studioz, which bought the rights to distribute the film in the country at Rs 80 crore. Other distributors were refunded 30% of the losses after each account was separately checked and analysed by the actor’s team.

“...when Jab Harry Met Sejal began to crash, distributors sent SOS message to Shah Rukh Khan, asking him to follow Salman Khan’s steps. They asked for a refund for the back-breaking losses since Shah Rukh Khan had made good profits from the pre-sale of all India rights to NH Studioz, satellite, music and digital rights,” the report reads.

Jab Harry Met Sejal, which was directed by Imtiaz Ali and also starred Anushka Sharma, was expected to earn at least Rs100 crore but could manage a meagre Rs 64.33 crore. It was panned by critics and the audience and the bad reviews travelled fast on social media, leading to abysmal collections. Shah Rukh has previously refunded distributors of his films Ashoka, Paheli and Dilwale.

Shah Rukh had also refunded money to distributors of Paheli.
