Of late, when small to medium budget films, high on content, are doing exceptionally well with the ones like Yaariyan and Highway, Bhoothnath Returns certainly had a bag load of positives like a perfect solo release date that coincided with the election season across the nation, a big name in its cast, good marketing and most importantly good content. Following is the break-up of the film's economics.

Total production cost is said to be Rs. 29 crores out of which Rs. 20 crores is the Cost of Production while the rest Rs. 9 crores was spent on Publicity and Advertising
Moreover, talking about the satellite rights, the film was sold to Sony for Rs. 21 crores
