Akshay Kumar is wondering why we don’t see multistarrers like there used to be in the 90’s. When asked about Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh’s role in Sooryavanshi, the actor was quick to reply and say that it is just a cameo.
The actor while clarifying that the other actors are only doing a guest appearance did not hesitate to inform the media why two actors don’t want to work with each other. He said, “They are all doing cameos in Sooryavanshi. But there still isn’t a film like maybe an Amar Akbar Anthony.
Pehle banti thi, I have done such films with actors like Suniel Shetty, Saif Ali Khan and others. Ab, I don’t know why we don’t do it anymore. People don’t want to work with another actor anymore.”
Well, the real reason is the fee that a leading actor charges today. Anything from 20 crore to 50 crore from a film’s budget goes to the lead star.
At these values, it’s pretty much impossible to cast three actors in a film. Financially it is not viable. That’s the plain unvarnished truth why you’re unlikely to see multistarrers anytime soon.
