Yami Gautam Says Actor's Fees Should Be Realistic; Hopes There Is Correction In Pay!
Yami Gautam made her acting debut with Shoojit Sircar's Vicky Donor and also marked the Bollywood debut of Ayushmann Khurrana
Yami Gautam has often been candid about the issues that interest her. The actress has shared that she hopes there will be fee correction for actors. She also shared that there was a time when filmmakers would mortgage their houses to make films, but corporate culture prevails nowadays in the film industry.
In an interaction with Dainik Bhaskar, Yami said, "I hope (there is a correction). Though, I have always wondered who made the structure of fees and other issues (in the industry). Now, the people paying hefty fees make the rules. It is corporate culture. Earlier, there was an era when individual producers were there. They even mortgaged their own houses to make films. That is how a few iconic films were made. Such was the passion of filmmaking at that time." ALSO READ | SHOCKING!

She added, "Of course, the fees of actors should be realistic enough to not affect the film's budget. It is not right that your film is a hit for the sake of saying so, but your producer could not even recover their budget."
The actress made her acting debut with Shoojit Sircar's Vicky Donor and also marked the Bollywood debut of Ayushmann Khurrana. The film was one of the few-content-driven Hindi films and it even managed to score well at the box office. The film was made at an estimated budget of Rs 5 crore. To everyone’s surprise, Vicky Donor collected ₹65 crore. ALSO READ | Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga Review: Yami Gautam And Sunny Kaushal Starrer Netflix Film Trips Over Its Own Smartness
