Alia Bhatt, who is set to share screen space with Ranveer Singh in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, reveals that she would not ask for the same remuneration as her co-actor.
Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh are two of the biggest powerhouses of talent in Bollywood. If one has proved his versatility with films like Simmba and Padmaavat, the other has given memorable performances in films like Udta Punjab and Raazi. And for the first time, these two powerful performers are coming together on the big screen for Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy.
While Alia is known to be one of the best talents in the film industry, her first co-actor and friend Varun Dhawan revealed that he has asked the actress to hike her fee as he thinks that she is underpaid.
On a chat show, Alia was recently asked about actors charging a bomb that puts pressure on the budget of the film. To which the actress replied, “I don’t think I can say that for myself. I understand the whole pressure that comes with putting a film together especially because my father is a producer and also Karan (Johar) is a father figure to me in a sense. And I understand the pressures that go into a making a film.”
Alia, who is six years old in Bollywood, said that she would not ask for the same money as herGully Boy co-actor, and she has her reasons.
“I will not ask for the same amount that maybe Ranveer will ask for because I cannot charge that money just based on the way my film will probably open. And maybe the way his film would open. You cannot compare it, so I am not deluded about that. But if any new boy who’s done one film is getting paid more than me just because he’s a boy, then, of course, I am not gonna agree with that,” added Alia.
Saying this, Alia added that it is important for the actor to be a little flexible if he is being offered a small-budget film. “You know that the subject is tight and the audience may not come in instantly and it’s more of a word-of-mouth kind of film, then I think it makes sense for an actor to kind of soften their remuneration. It should just be a little light on the film and then you have a different deal where you take a backend etc. But if you know that the film has the ability to be a massive hit to become a blockbuster just based on the title and the content, then I don’t think it’s wrong. But it’s definitely important to be aware of your value,” said Alia.
