Vijay Sethupathi to reduce remuneration after blockbuster success

Vijay Sethupathi to reduce remuneration after blockbuster success


In a surprising development, Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi has decided to take a pay cut. After having delivered one of the biggest hits in his career with “Maharaja,” he has slashed his remuneration. Sources close to the movie confirm that it had grossed in excess of Rs 35 crores in Tamil Nadu and Rs 6 crores in the Telugu states.

Notwithstanding this, Vijay Sethupathi has taken the unexpected decision to reduce his remuneration.

One for Availability

The “Vikram Vedha” star, much appreciated for his versatility, now wants to be accessible to producers. “Normally he would charge Rs 10 crores as a hero, but now with a blockbuster behind him, though he can definitely demand more, he has decided to cut down his pay,” revealed a source close to the development about this superstar. In return, Vijay Sethupathi wants to take up projects which are based on strong scripts rather than the high remunerative ones.

Vijay Sethupathi recently entered Telugu cinema with “Uppena.” There he enacted as a serious father who disapproves of his daughter’s love and was embraced by the audience. He enacted well and further entrenched himself in popularity. Key roles in Bollywood films like “Farzi” and “Merry Christmas” further increased his following beyond southern states.

Industry Impact

This move from Vijay Sethupathi might earlier end up being an exercise in discipline for all the other stars. Digital and the rates of Hindi dubbing rights have fallen, and definitely a pay cut from the top stars will put the producers in a better position while dealing with their budgets. “Hopefully some Telugu stars will take cue from this and think of reducing their fees to support the producers,” added the source.


Yet, with all the recent successes, the price cut underlines his commitment toward quality cinema and accessibility. The actor is now looking at only strong scripts and cooperating with more producers, setting a great example within the film industry. This will see other stars follow suit for the betterment of the entire film industry.
