Kapoors, Johars & Khans made B-town

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh lists the top five production houses in Bollywood thus, in terms of their standing in the trade circuits and financial standings: UTV (owned by Ronnie Screwvala, Deven Khote and Zareena Mehta), Yash Chopra’s Yash Raj Films (YRF), Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Rakesh Roshan’s Filmkraft Productions and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Films.

“Over the past few years, it has been more or less a toss-up between these five production houses in terms of number of movies released, number of hits registered, the annual turnover and popularity overseas. Although Subhash Ghai’s banner hasn’t recorded many hits in the recent past, the company’s market value is still on a par with the five biggies,” Adarsh says.

  1. 300 crore nett turnover for YRF is pretty amazing considering this is not their best time . it suggest model on which they work is pretty strong unlike other corporates.

  2. But YRF is still a family business. UTV has a more corporate model and I wonder what their turnover numbers are.

  3. yeah but UTV makes 20 films a year cocmpared to YRF 5

  4. They had RNBDJ but until they have audited numbers, I don’t believe in any numbers of crores.
