Bollywood chocolate boy Ranbir Kapoor may just do another 'Salman Khan' and compensate distributors for losses incurred after the release of his home production Jagga Jasoos on Friday.

Sultan Salman Khan recently offered compensation to the distributors of his Eid release Tubelight which was a surprise flop and was hailed for his act.

At a promotional event ahead of the release of Jagga Jasoos, Ranbir Kapoor said that everybody should make money and not just the producers.

"It's been going on for years. My grandfather was a producer from 1950 and I think this home style of making films -- where everybody makes money, not just the producer, the distributor and exhibitors -- is a very healthy exercise. It's very good to compensate when somebody loses money on something where you have kind of made money. But of course, it depends from person to person and from film to film," the actor said.

Part of the first filmi family of Bollywood, grandson of Raj Kapoor and great-grandson of Prithvi Raj Kapoor, Ranbir said that compensating for the losses runs in the family.

"Films like 'Mera Nam Joker' had heavy losses, so when grandfather released his film 'Bobby', he gave more of a percentage to the distributors and exhibitors. They maintained a sense of balance in it. Personally, if my film had losses and I was making money out of it, I would definitely compensate," he said.

Directed by Anurag Basu and starring Katrina Kaif alongside Ranbir, Jagga Jasoos has been in the making for 3 years. Telling the story of a teenage detective who goes in search of his missing father, the movie releases on July 14.
