Mani Ratnam had recently shared his two cents on how film production post lockdown will require big stars and technicians to take pay cuts.

Ratnam, who had been shooting his upcoming period film Ponniyin Selvan before the nation went into lockdown, said in a webinar, “The fact that the immediate theater release is going to get difficult, and the market is going to get eroded means that I have to make sure the cost of my film is brought down. Which means, people involved in it, especially big stars and technicians, will have to understand and help in reducing the cost and work towards making sure the film industry remains afloat. We will possibly also require a little bit of help from the government. It’s an industry which isn’t just simple entertainment, we do so much more. We give dreams to people, make them smile. It takes a lot of time of people who invest in this.”
