well, it's their bread and butter, more than anything.... if an actor or actress is bankable at the box office, most naturally their price goes up... the price of any actor corresponds directly to their saleability at the box office... i'm sure our actresses would also chare a whopping amount, if they could churn out hits on their own... TongueTongue   kareena, ash and priyanka all charge around 5 to 7 crores, don't they... not sure, but they are obviously more seasoned actresses and have a huge fan base, and a pull at the box office, hence the higher fees...
 
madhuri and sridevi used to charge insane amounts of money though, during their peak...!  TongueTongue
 
so really, it's up to the director and the producers... akki is right though about that... TongueTongue   heck, aamir has been part of two low budget movies so far, but both of them have been his (or his wive's) home production... TongueTongue   don't think any of them would take too much of a paycut... not unless, their market value goes down...!!
 
if the real actors (according to the critics and others) could get commercial success though their movies, why would the khans and akki be still in the running.... that too, among the top names... TongueTongue

There are many actors down south who charge "percentages" of revenue or get rights for distribution in certain zones in lieu of an immediate hefty payment.


Presence of these stars might mar the content of the low budget film... AKshay Reminds me of the vain hero Om Kapoor in OSO

actually, i think all the actors and actresses, though who are popular anyways, are vain... so i won't just name akshay and give the others 'benefit of the doubt'... TongueTongueTongue
 
sab ek jaise hain... some hide it well, some don't....!
 
 
i meant in bollywood, btw... don't know about down south...!

^bollywood or south or east or west..everybody is vain..or atleast MOST people are vain


It is just about the tact in giving interviews... If he worded it differently, he could have given out a different view here.
