Tamil actors’ remunerations need to be streamlined like in Tollywood, says producer KE Gnanavelraja

A lot has been spoken about the remuneration of actors, their staff and other financial things about star actors in Tamil and there have been many discussions in the past. However, much hasn’t progressed over years. Producer K.E.Gnanavelraja says that the Tamil film industry needs to look at how Telugu film industry functions in terms of remunerations and profitability angle. Speaking at the press meet of Allu Arjun starrer Tamil dubbed version of En Peyar Surya En Veedu India, Gnanavelraja said that Tollywood functions in a streamlined fashion which helps everyone in the industry. “A big Telugu hero with a 100 CR business, charges just 15 CR as his salary. Their heroes are reasonable and down to earth. Here, a similar level hero charges almost 50 CR as his salary. Most of our heroes are self-centered. We have a lot to learn from Tollywood,” the producer said.

Speaking about why Tamil movies don’t have a market in dubbed Hindi version as much as Telugu films do, Gnanavelraja says that the look and feel are rich in Telugu. “There is a huge market for Telugu films in the Hindi dubbed market (upwards of 15 CR easily for big films). Their films look rich and grand, hence this demand up North. There is a great buzz for Telugu films in Mumbai,” he added.

K.E.Gnanavelraja was invited as the chief guest for the press meet of En Peyar Surya En Veedu India which is the Tamil dubbed version of Naa Peru Surya starring Allu Arjun. The makers held a press meet to promote the film which is slated to be release in Telugu and Tamil on May 4th, 2018. Naa Peru Surya has Allu Arjun playing a soldier and is said to be an intense drama. Naa Peru Surya is being directed by Vakkantham Vamsi while the Tamil dialogues are written by Pa Vijay.
