Real money is in guest roles
More and more actors are realizing that there is more money in guest roles than full length roles. Earlier top actors used to play guest roles in films to oblige the young heroes or the upcoming directors, but not anymore.
Now playing guest roles involves big money. Charmy charges about 30 to 40 lakhs today for acting in a full length role in a film. But for a five minute item song in Bhale Dongalu, she received 23 lakhs.
Even Jagpathi Babu is charging around 40 to 50 lakhs for making special appearance. He made a special appearance in Gopichand’s Lakshyam. Senior actors like Sri Hari and Mohan Babu are also making good money by appearing in guest roles.
