Why Ajith,Vijay,Suriya not follows Aamir Khan's Formula?

The Title may kindles the anger to the hardcore fanatics! sorry guys there is nothing to do with the title, its more with the business of our Tamil film industry.The biggest money spinners of Tamil cinema are the Producers who are producing movies with these top heroes but some times they are ruined .

There is no doubt in the potential of Ajith,Vijay or suriya who can ring the cash in the Box Office big time but why can't they follow the route of Aamir Khan in the Box-office?.

First of all I would like to clear the airs about the so called Aamir khan route it is simple but a clever move, lets see what it is in bullet points...

  • Many says the Aamir khan is a brilliant script-selector do you know why..? Because he is involving in the project from the start to end.
  • He won't get salary for his project so that the budget of a movie is considerably reduced as big star's salary plays a vital role in the budget of their project.
  • Instead of salary he will get a share in the profit if the film is a hit.
  • This formula is not new to Kollywood . Our superstar didn't got salary for Endhiran until it released .which reduced the movies budget by 25-30 crores which definitely contributed for the boost of the Film in Box-office. after the film's success he got the salary.
  • Even our ulaganayagan Kamal hassan folows more or less the same formula but indirectly, yes he is producing most of his movies so that the salary is reduced from the budget which indeed got a big boost in Box office.
  • example:Apoorva sagotharagal, Thevar Magan,Unnai pol oruvan.
  • Even the damage caused by some of Kamal's movie is reduced(not to a greater extend but reduced to a smaller extend) by the same formula for example Hey ram, Virumandi because he produced those films.
Let us take Billa 2 as a real time example as it is going to hit the screens very soon, Let us estimate the budget of the movie to be 45 crores . If Ajith didn't offered a salary the film's budget will be reduced 25-30 crores. We Know the capacity of Ajith as the opening will be very big(vijay,suriya too have same kind of opening) so they can recover the budget within 4 days. from fifth day it is a profit for the producer and from the profit these big stars can get a share say 25 %.If the film is a hit it can bring atleast 60-70 crores for any Ajith,vijay,suriya movies these days. If we included the satellite rights it will be even more.

If its a average/flop movie the amount of remuneration for the actors may be less but the damage to the Producers and distributors will be greatly reduced.More over the concentration in script selection will be better if the stars followed this formula.

This is just a simple idea from my side, some may oppose me. You can share your thoughts and I can change my dimension if I went wrong!
