Subhash Ghai and Mukta Arts were the first Producers to refund money to the distributors of the film, Trimurti (1995) to compensate their losses.
Though he was questioned by many producers and was advised not to start this practice – since there was no transparency in the film business with real box office collections shown by them. The producers never received their full profit share when the movie was a blockbuster. But, Distributors appreciated this gesture of his and bought his next, Pardes with new girl Mahima Chaudhary and Shah Rukh Khan at his price.
Now in 2017, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are being appreciated for their gesture of refunding money. Also today, the film business is totally transparent.
Subhash Ghai is planning to announce his movies soon but as a producer. He and his team have been working on scripts since the last two years. Subhash also stated:
“I shall not direct a movie till I am totally thrilled with a story which is new to me and with a meaningful issue like Iqbal. I have done it all and seen it all, as a writer-director. God has blessed me more than I could ask in life. All above is Love from people. Let the new generation take it over and make movies for Mukta Arts and for themselves. I am happy as a producer as well as with educational space and enjoying it most.”
