Everything is changing with the corona crisis. The film industry is not an exception to this phenomenon. There are predictions like remunerations of heroes will decrease. There are other arguments like it is impossible to decrease hero remunerations in Tollywood.
There are reports from a long time that Mahesh Babu usually takes non-theatrical rights as his remuneration those which will be around Rs.45 to 50 crores. The latest talk reveals that he is changing the model.
Rumors in the industry say that no producer has pocketed profits through Mahesh Babu’s films since ‘Srimanthudu’.
Under these circumstances for the film Sarkaru Vari Paata, the banner of Mythri Movies will invest on the first copy excluding the remunerations of the hero.
Once the film is sold, subtracting the cost of production the remaining will be shared among Mahesh, 14 reels and Mytri Movies.
But in this model, Mahesh has to compromise with lesser remuneration. If the film is completed in Rs 50 Cr, and in case it is sold at Rs 150 Cr, Mahesh gets a share of Rs 35 Cr.
