how much money did Raj - The Showman made?

This is some pure fun after a long hiatus and some gud work too. Gud work is film personalities come forward to donate money for victims of floods and fun is its the celebration of 50 days completion of flop film of the decade Raj - The showman!!!!

Monday started with new producer Darshan Priya writing a cheque for Rs 51,000 in aid of the victims of the flood in north Karnataka. She wrote the cheque while she was on the dais at the press meet of her film Hrudayadali Idenidu. The 23-year-old is producing her first film.

Later in the day, one of the producers of Raj — The Showman, Srinivas Murthy announced he is donating Rs one lakh (Still he has money!!) to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund. The film has completed 50 days and the director, Prem, claims that the film has collected in its first week what other films do in 25 weeks!!! But even asking by the reporters he doesnt disclose the any figures and he played it safe !!.

The film’s making is said to have cost Rs 10 crore and Prem says the cost has been recovered in the first week itself. Distributor Jayanna was more forthcoming and revealed that the gross collections of the film have been about Rs 25 crore and its net earning is in the region of Rs 12.5 crore. Considering that the film ran well in the districts that now lie submerged, the contribution seems too small. Isn't it??

Puneeth Rajkumar, the leading man of the film said that his family’s Dr Rajkumar Trust will be doing its bit and will announce a donation on Wednesday. “I feel so sad at the people's suffering. I appeal to all individuals to do their bit for the welfare of the victims,” he said.

The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce and the Karnataka Cine Artistes' Association are still silent on the issue.
