Important to not burden any film with actor’s fees: Riteish Deshmukh

Not burdening a film with star fee can decide its survival and of those engaged in making it, says actor-producer Riteish Deshmukh, stressing that he doesn't charge a single penny when he casts himself in a project backed by his banner.

Deshmukh, who is set to make his series debut with "Pill", ventured into film production with the 2013 Marathi movie “Balak-Palak” under Mumbai Film Company. He later starred in “Lai Bhaari” (2014) and “Ved” (2022), both Marathi titles produced by his stable.

Asked to comment on the ongoing debate about rising star fee and overhead costs, the actor-producer told PTI: "I'm a producer who casts me and I don't pay myself, so I'm fine... I just feel that it's important that you do not burden any film with an actor's fee because the film needs to survive. And if the film survives, everyone will survive."
