One is not sure whether producers are getting profits or not of late, though the remuneration of stars is increasing in crores with each project. A film’s budget with little craze will be a minimum of Rs 100crs.
But in these current circumstances, it is quite difficult to get profits investing Rs 100crs on projects. No one is sure about the condition of the theatres after lockdown but currently, the OTT wave is sweeping across the industry.
Under these circumstances, only producers will suffer huge losses and theatre owners. To overcome the problem, stars should slash their remunerations. Not only stars even actors with little craze should do their bit coming down on their pay packs and help the industry or else it will be difficult for the industry to bounce back.
Few Kollywood stars already slashed 25% of their remuneration and other industries are following the suit. The question is will Tollywood stars help the producers. They often come up with statements that only when producers are financially strong, the industry will prosper. Now it is time for them to save them.
