In the current era dominated by online streaming platforms, the movie business has seen a surge, especially in pre-release dealings. This surge has notably led to increased pay for leading actors, with Ravi Teja commanding a hefty 25 crore remuneration per film.
However, the landscape is shifting, and streaming giants are becoming more cautious about splurging on new movies. Consequently, pre-release business numbers have dipped, yet actors like Ravi Teja are reluctant to reduce their fees. For instance, a film planned with Gopichand Malineni had budget concerns for Mythri Movie Makers.
Despite being on paper, the project’s expenses seemed too high. Ravi Teja, however, refused to lower his remuneration, causing the film to be stalled. The actor’s stance is fueled by other producers still willing to meet his quoted remuneration. People Media Factory, for instance, is set to pay him the same sum for his role in ‘Eagle,’ and they’re also producing another film where Ravi Teja will receive a similar amount.
while the market dynamics are shifting, some producers continue to agree to Ravi Teja’s quoted remuneration, making it challenging for the actor to accept a pay cut, even when certain projects face budget constraints.
