Ram's remuneration for two consecutive flops is twenty crores. Almost fifty percent of the one hundred crore project directed by Boyapati will go towards the director and hero remunerations.
Now, this has become a hot topic in Tollywood. Tollywood has been plagued by a series of disasters. However, heroes and directors are not reducing their remuneration. Megastar Chiranjeevi's Acharya and Naga Chaitanya's Thank You were an epic disaster.
In this order, the Film Chamber of Commerce has taken measures to prevent losses. New proposals have been made to revise the ticket prices in AP/Telangana states. Also, a rule was brought that films under a budget of six crores should be released in OTT only after four weeks. The Film Chamber of Commerce members allege that the producers and buyers are losing money. Even if the situation is terrible, the heroes are not reducing their remuneration. The members also alleged that heroes and directors are propping up their images by showing fake collections.
Remuneration is fixed based on the budget of the film. Ram Pothineni's pan India movie under the direction of Boyapati has been announced, and his remuneration is said to be twenty crores. Ram's last two films, Red and The Warrior got him 20 crores. Except for iSmart Shankar movie, none of his films has crossed 25 crores in theatrical revenue.
