The total budget of MOM is 40 crores including the promotion and advertising costs. Budget is very high considering the genre of the movie. MOM should earn at least 50 crores to be called a box office hit. With release Jagga Jasoos today, there will be a big drop in MOM screens count.
Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium too followed the same trend. It earned around 25 crores in the first week and managed to earn 70 crores in its lifetime. It would be interesting to see if MOM manages to cross 50 crores mark.
