Kota Srinivasa Rao recently made a controversial statement suggesting that the salaries of legendary actors NTR and ANR were never publicly known during their time as top stars in the industry.
He emphasized that these iconic actors never boasted about their high earnings. However, he expressed concern about the current trend where certain stars unnecessarily flaunt their exorbitant remunerations, claiming to receive a staggering Rs 2 crore per day.
It is evident that Kota Srinivasa Rao’s statement indirectly targets Pawan Kalyan, who recently boasted about charging Rs 2 crore per day for his film shoots.
This has sparked a debate within the film industry about the transparency surrounding actors’ salaries. Some actors believe in maintaining privacy when it comes to their earnings, while others find it necessary to highlight their financial successes.
The controversy also raises questions about the changing dynamics of the film industry and the growing emphasis on commercial aspects. The focus on financial gains and the public display of wealth has become more prominent in recent times, contrasting the practices of earlier generations of actors who prioritized their craft over monetary considerations.
It remains to be seen how Pawan Kalyan’s fans will respond to Kota Srinivasa Rao’s statement. They may either retaliate against him or consider his viewpoint as valid.
