For many, Akshay Kumar is the perfect action hero. For others, he may even be the perfect comedian. However, what most may not instantly associate him with is film-making which he does under both Hari Om Productions and Grazing Goat. The 44-year-oldshares his tips for definite success as a film-maker.
“I have a very simple solution – make your films, because when you make your film you will not include your remuneration and it takes off the burden from a film,” Kumar said in a recent interview, as reported by the Times of India. He went on to say that he pays his films’ writers well and advises that writerscould ask for a cut of the overall profit of a filminstead of complaining that they don’t get their due in the industry.
Kumar went on to say that he believes profit-sharing is the way forward. He says neither an actor or producercan preempthow a film will do at the box office so it is always a difficult task agreeing onrenumeration.
‘Rowdy Rathore’ will see Kumar return to action flicks. On this topic, Kumar revealed, “…When I did my first action film ‘Rowdy Rathore’ after six years, I chose to do raw action. I believe in manpower and not technological power.”
