In Tollywood, only lead actors happen to be Telugu stars. Be it heroines, villains, character actors, technicians come from other states irrespective of their languages. Not only in Tollywood, but the situation is also the same in all South languages.
Now reports are coming that Corona is knocking down super baddies. Currently, top baddies are getting handsomely in crores. However, due to theatres closure and social distancing, the makers are contemplating reducing their budgets and also discussions are on to come with a cap on heroes' remuneration. Under these circumstances, it is impossible for the baddies to earn in crores.
Jagapathy Babu has been drawing Rs 1-2crs per project while Jackie Shroff has been getting Rs 5crs. Even Vijay Sethupathi is getting handsomely. But with coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent conditions, the production houses who already locked these villains are now holding discussions with the baddies to come down on their remuneration and work on re agreements. The producers already decided to slash villains' remuneration in future projects.
