F&o margin query in a startegy

Suppose if I am running a strategy including future+ options .

And I am in profit of 30 k in options, but in loss of 30k in future.
So it is visible that overall iam no profit no loss.

But my query statrs here, will i have to add margin in futures position because I am in loss ?
Pls reply anyone.

The profit in options you make is notional since you have bought them. If you have made losses on futures, it is realized loss as futures are marked to market everyday. So yes, you will have to add margin since futures is making losses.
