Kartik Aaryan has become a favourite among audiences and filmmakers. With the many hits in his kitty, the actor is also now a favourite among producers. The actor delivered a recent hit with Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and it was a box office blockbuster. He joined hands with the producers of the film, Bhushan Kumar, for another title before the success of the horror sequel, and it looks like Kumar is very happy about his association with the star.
The T-Series head honcho recently opened up about the hike in actors’ fees for a film affecting other departments in the industry. While discussing the issue, he went on to praise Aaryan saying that he is grateful to the actor for supporting their upcoming film Shehzaada financially.
“Today, people want to see larger-than-life cinema and you need to put big money to make those films. Such films can’t be made without support of the actors and to their credit a lot of them are doing it now. For example, Kartik, supported us a lot. This factor is very important for making a big-budget film. Today, if the actor fee is more, we compromise on the budget,” he told Pinkvilla.
He went on to talk about how every film earning Rs 100 crore may not necessarily be profitable. He quipped, “Not every film needs to earn Rs 100 crore. Our film, Pati Patni Aur Woh made 92 crore and it’s a super hit. Today, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has done Rs 150 crore, but we would have been in a happy space even at Rs 80 to 90 crore. “
“Our next film is Shehzaada, and we would want it to do better than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, but that isn’t a benchmark, because the finances of that film are different. Kartik financially stood by us during the turbulent times and hats off to him,” he shared.
The Kartik Aaryan-starrer Shehzaada is directed by Rohit Dhawan. Also starrting Kriti Sanon, the film is the official Hindi remake of the super-hit Telugu film, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
