While a section of the trade and smaller filmmakers are crying themselves hoarse at the unrealistically high prices that the top stars are demanding, it seems as if it hardly matters to those who can afford to.
As per sources, Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar, who star in Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision's upcoming BLUE, were recently lodged at Phuket's (Thailand) Banyan Tree Hotel suites by the concerned producers, as they were there for the shooting. Unbelievable as it may sound but the per-day charge of one suite was - Thai Baht 60,000 or in other words, Rs. 80,000!
Little wonder that the film's budget is going up and threatening to touch the sky!
