Ripu Bal Dharishi Harshi Kapi Balitnay Bal Punj. Pulak Sarir Nayan Jal Gahe Ram Pad Kanj.
Tulsidasji has written these lines in Ramayana for Sugriva’s son Angad. Angad went to Ravana as a messenger from Rama. Going there, Ravana’s pride was shattered. As soon as he came back, he fell at Shri Ram’s feet. His body throbbed. His eyes filled with tears. Here it is meant that even after achieving such great success, Angad was not proud. His feet were on the ground like before. But these days the importance of the stars of the South is at its peak. These movie stars from the South, who break the pride of Bollywood, feel that there is no one better in the world than them. That is why someone is being insulted in the arrogance of their achievement. Previous actors like Kichha Sudeep and Chiranjeevi insulted the film industry and the Hindi language and now Mahesh Babu is showing Bollywood his worth. He says that Bollywood does not have enough capacity to pay for it. He doesn’t want to waste his time working on Hindi movies.
Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s biopic ‘Major’ has been produced by southern movie superstar Mahesh Babu.
When Mahesh Babu, who arrived at the trailer launch event for his produced movie ‘Major’ based on the life of NSG commander Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who was martyred in the Mumbai terror attack, was asked about his Bollywood debut, He said Bollywood can’t afford it. So he doesn’t want to waste his time working on Hindi movies. He said, “You may see arrogance in my words, but let me tell you that I have a lot of offers for Hindi movies. But I think Bollywood won’t be able to pay me. I don’t want to waste my time working on Hindi movies. The stardom and the love I have in Telugu cinema, I can never think of moving to any other film industry. I always thought that I should make Telugu films and they should be seen all over the country. My faith is now becoming a reality. The success of ‘RRR’ and ‘KGF’ is an example. No one else can be happier than me.
Mahesh Babu would have seen these figures before speaking
The same hatred is reflected in the words of Mahesh Babu, which was seen in the words of Kicha Sudeep and Chiranjeevi. Those words may have been for Bollywood, but they are meant for the Hindi language. Otherwise, working on Hindi movies is not considered a waste of time. Mahesh Babu says Bollywood can’t afford it. I want to ask why so? Do they charge more fees than Bollywood actors or something else? If it comes to fees then Mahesh Babu charges up to Rs 50 crore for a movie. If he produces a movie, then the profit is different. Come on, this is fine, but do you know how much the biggest Bollywood superstars get paid? I think maybe not, otherwise he would never have made such a light statement. For your information, let me tell you that the superstars Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan charge up to 100 million rupees for a movie. Not only this, Akshay Kumar also gets profit shares from his movies without investing any money.
Whether by revenue or fees, the Hindi film industry is still ahead
If we are talking about well-paid actors across the country, then he is just Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. Not only this, Akshay has been the only Indian in the list of the 100 highest paid celebrities in the world in 2020 by the American business magazine Forbes, which was ranked 52nd. He was even ahead of Hollywood actors Jackie Chan and Jennifer Lopez. His one-year earnings were estimated to be around Rs 356 crore. Apart from this, the highest grossing film in the country is Aamir Khan’s Bollywood ‘Dangal’ which has earned a total of 2.1 billion rupees. SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster movie ‘Bahubali’ is also behind his earnings. ‘Bahubali 2’ earned a total of Rs 1.7 billion while it is the first movie to be released in India. All these figures are enough to get rid of Mahesh Babu’s statement. He should understand that he himself is responsible for the condition the Hindi film industry is in today, and not for the success of South Cinema.
The culmination of the ego of the stars of Cine Sur
This statement by Mahesh Babu must be considered as the culmination of the ego of the stars of South Cinema. Because before this, Kicha Sudeep and Chiranjeevi have hurt the people of the Hindi belt with their respective statements. To those people who make a living watching his movies. If South’s films hadn’t been released in Hindi, they would never have been able to make as many earnings records. Despite this, targeting Hindi under the guise of Bollywood is wrong. Kicha had said, “Bollywood movies are struggling, which means Hindi is no longer the national language.” Bollywood is struggling today, that’s fine, but where is the Hindi talk coming from here? By the way, South Indian storytellers should understand that the struggle of Hindi cinema is not due to the strength of Southern cinema or South Indian languages and the weakness of the Hindi language. Megastar Chiranjeevi also washed his hands in the flowing river. He pulled out the pain from years ago buried in his heart. He had said, “Earlier Hindi cinema was considered Indian cinema. Southern actors don’t get as much respect as Bollywood actors used to, so they were once very sad. An incident that happened in the year 1989 was also mentioned. .
