Some actors think that the more hits they give, the more entitled they are to hike their fees. While one acknowledges their part in the movie, they conveniently forget the fact that it’s also the story, director, banner and a host of other things which also contribute in the movie’s success. One such case is of the classy actor who has had a series of successes – except his last one, a quirky entertainer with a social message. While the movie failed to set the box-office ringing, the makers are desperately promoting it as a hit. Over the years, the classy actor has built up an enviable reputation of choosing the right scripts and overtaken many a top actor on the success chart. But his last release is proving a tough hurdle for him to overcome.

The classy actor is known to pick his scripts with success and is part of the talent pool, managed by a production house. Bollywood producers feel that it’s his managers who hike his fees so often. After his third and fourth success, his fee doubled and the hapless producers had no choice but to agree. But now his latest movie, a quirky entertainer, revolving around a social issue, proved to be a damp squib at the box-office and it’s very tough for him and his managers to accept that fact. The quirky social message and trailers failed to ignite that spark which his earlier movies have done and critics have panned it as a bad movie.  

But the makers have been told to promote the movie as a hit (although it has not even crossed its production budget) as they want to increase the classy actor's remuneration. In Bollywood, a flop film equals taking a cut in not only in a pay hike, but it means lesser brand endorsements and the actor has signed up some huge deals over the last couple of years – all thanks to his success.

The actor has forgotten the fact that he has earlier been part of two controversies revolving around his movies due to creative issues. While his performances have been laudable in all the movies, the script and directors have had equally strong roles to play. A few years earlier, he had a fallout with one of his mentors too who refused to give in to his pricey demands and stopped signing him for his home production.

Thanks to his new fee hike, the classy actor has also had a fallout with one of his directors. While the actor had, in principle, given his nod, to the director, known to make small budget, successful movies with a social message, after his last release, his attitude changed. His phone is unavailable to the director as are his dates. The announcement for the new movie was to come this month but now has got indefinitely postponed - for the moment. He is in talks with other studios to announce his next as the rift between the two appears to deepen day by day.

Right now, it’s a dead end as the actor wants more money and is plugging his quirky movie as a hit but the director, who knows his craft, is not willing to budge when he knows the truth. The studio, in question, has turned to other actors now while the director wants to announce his next with his favourite actress.

In Bollywood, things appear to get sorted in a jiffy, so we won’t be surprised if the classy actor and director patch-up and announce their next project in a couple of months. But one thing is clear, actors need to snap out their dream worlds and smell the coffee fast before others step into their shoes. Budgets make movies and not the stars.

Ayushmann is a natural actor . He is the only actor who takes such risks and comes up beautifully. Why should nt he charge that money .

ayushman khuranna - highly overrated. The film did not even last for more than one week and it is a hit? seriously? the same with Malang.

suraj pancholi

If Ayushmann was a star kid or a producer's favorite would this blind even exist? Would the writer of this blind still have the guts to write this? Did Ranbir and Varun reduce their fees after disappointing films? So why are outsiders only harassed and targetted for asking for what they deserve???

Ayushman Khuranna is the best <3

Even a dumb can make out ..are you anti self made people ..just like you have name pink villa but are against women who dare blue villa isn't it apt name for you hypocrite

Chunky Pandey

How does the nepo brigade justify their pay checks??

Ayushman khurana

Kartik

Did Ranbir reduce his fee after Besharam, Jagga Jassos, Bombay Velvet? Why should Ayushman not charge the fee he deserves? Is this because he is an outsider? At least his producers and distributors are not losing their money. And why would a producer pay him hiked fee if he/she does not see the profit from the movie?

For gods sake, everything isn’t about nepotism

Ayushman for sure n the film is Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. But i feel the blind item is too flagged. The film ain't a flop though. It's a semi hit.

Salman Khan

Amitabh bachchan

Ayushman khurana and shubh mangalam savdhaan

Ayushman..... Swaha

Ayushmaan Khurana?
