“Writers should get paid more for sure. If a film does 100 crore and if you pay a writer 1%, it is still nothing. We don’t do that and that’s the sad part,” said Arjun.
He further added, “We should inculcate more writing. The problem inherently lies in our writing. There aren’t enough writers. Most writers aspire to become directors because they feel nobody has the vision to fulfil their scripts. There are many such examples. Habib Faisal, Tigmanshu Dhulia are all writer-directors now.”
Well, we hope the industry is listening. It’s high time we got more good scripts which would perhaps result in more films doing well.
