After the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, there were reports that actor Kartik Aaryan had increased his fees. Karthik himself dismissed these rumours and called it baseless. Now, the producer of his Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Shehzada, Bhushan Kumar has lauded the actor and revealed that Kartik supported him financially during the turbulent times.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Bhushan Kumar opened up about how a film’s collection does not determine whether it is successful, and lauded Kartik Aaryan for his support. “Every film need not earn Rs 100 crore. Our film, Pati Patni Aur Woh earned Rs. 92 crores and it is a super hit. Today Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has earned Rs 150 crore, but we would have been happy even in Rs 80-90 crore. Our next film is Shehzada, and we want it to do better than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, but it is not a benchmark, as the finances of that film are different. Karthik stood by us during the financially turbulent times and salutes him. ,
He further added, “After delivering just one successful film, actors increase their fees. But this practice is not good in the long run. Whenever an actor inflates his price unreasonably, he has to face the problems that lie ahead. have to face.”
Bhushan Kumar also categorically said, “Today, people want to watch larger-than-life cinema and you need to invest big money to make those films. Such films cannot be made without the support of actors and their credit.” For example many of them are doing it now. For example, Kartik, he supported us a lot. This factor is very important to make a big budget film. Let’s do it.”
Kartik Aaryan had earlier addressed the rumors of his fee hike and wrote, “Promotion has happened, not increment.” Apart from Shahzada, actor Freddy will be seen in Captain India And the story of Satyanarayan.
