No impact of coronavirus on Tollywood star actors and directors


The entire world is shattered with the arrival of coronavirus pandemic. The daily wage workers and the migrants across the globe are the most impacted. Tollywood came to a halt and the producers are feeling the pressure. The interests are mounting and some of the producers decided to slash down the remunerations of the actors and the directors. But this seems not to be implemented for the star directors and actors. The latest announcements and the combinations made it clear that the stars are not in a mood to compromise on their paycheques.

After the super success of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Allu Arjun hiked his fee for Pushpa. For Koratala Siva’s film that is announced recently, he is said to be taking more than what he is charging for Pushpa. His close relatives will share the profits. Koratala Siva who had a cut in his remuneration for Acharya will return back to a huge paycheque with Allu Arjun’s project. Mahesh Babu continues to be the highest-paid Telugu actor among the new generation and he would be charging huge for Sarkaru Vaari Paata.

Chiranjeevi who is lining up number of projects will take a huge paycheque home and his home banner will continue to produce his films which means that they would share the profits. Venkatesh hiked his fee after F2 and he will continue to charge the same for F3 and other upcoming projects. NTR, Ram Charan are quoting huge remunerations for their upcoming projects after RRR. They would also share the profits for their upcoming projects. Prabhas is demanding Rs 100 crores for Nag Ashwin’s film and he did not announce any cut down for the film.

Directors like Rajamouli, Trivikram, Sukumar are in demand and they decided not to have any cut in their remuneration. All the top actors and directors are in huge demand and the producers will continue to pay them huge amounts despite of the stress and the dip in the market due to coronavirus pandemic.
