Many individuals often raise concerns that the increasing remuneration of A-list actors are a leading cause of film failures. Most of the films struggle to break even due to their high production budgets, with a significant portion of these expenses attributed to the star heroes' remunerations.
However, during the teaser launch event of the film "Kota Bommali," a prominent figure in Telugu cinema, Allu Aravind, refused these claims made against star heroes' remuneration. When a journalist inquired why renowned production companies like Geetha Arts are hesitant to make big-budget films, Allu Aravind had a one-word answer: "Cost." But when questioned about whether the salaries of the actors contribute to the increased costs of movies, Allu Aravind disagreed.
He mentioned that only 20 to 25 percent of a movie's budget is spent on star actors, and he believes their pay doesn't drive up the costs. Instead, these actors appear in films with large budgets. He also pointed out that the audience prefers grand and big-budget movies, regardless of the actor.
Allu Aravind cited the example of the movie KGF, stating that the hero wasn't a star before the film, but it became a blockbuster because it was made on a grand scale. Additionally, He also revealed that two major movies from Geetha Arts are facing delays for other reasons.
The two movies mentioned by Allu Aravind from Geetha Arts that are facing postponement have generated a lot of buzz among people. However, the specific details about which movies they are and the reasons behind their postponement were not disclosed by the producer.
