In a recent interview, Director Anurag Kashyap revealed his stand on the shut down of several studios in the industry.
When asked about downfall of major studios in the nation by entertainment website Pinkvilla, Anurag said, “We all need studios. They brought in a certain streamlining of movies. They also brought in a lot of mistakes.”
He added that the majority seems to think the shut down is an outcome of the extremely high rates charged by actors and directors.
He went on to mention the recent list of highest paid celebrities by Forbes where four of the actors were Indian and said, ” The film’s earning of the 6 Hollywood actors is in billions of dollars. Ours is 300 crores and they are still on that list. If you look at the ratio, of a business versus the income of an actor, you’ll see the disparity.”
“In the list, there is an actor whose films are making 300 crores and also actors whose films are making 1.2 billion dollars. Some are also below our actors. Now you see where the problem is,” he added.
The statement of Anurag Kashyap, who is famous for his controversial statements, seems to be targeted towards some of the highest paid actors in the country like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Salman Khan.
