Farah Khan talked about the good and bad changes that have affected how Bollywood works in an interview with the popular entertainment portal. In response to the actors' growing overhead spending, Khan disclosed a notable surge in charges.

 



Farah Khan expressed her concerns, stating, "The change I would like to bring about is that the entourage cost has become too much. An actress comes with nine people, and an actor comes with eight people. That is a waste of resources. That cost is nowhere to be seen in the film! That needs to be controlled a bit. Woh producers pe bohot bhaari padta hai."

 

According to reports from the popular news portal, the daily charges for a spot boy average Rs 25,000, while personal security charges are around Rs 15,000 per person per day. Stylists can charge up to Rs. 1 lakh. Consequently, the total overhead cost for a star comes to approximately Rs 20–22 lakhs per day.

Farah went into detail about the current situation and how it differs from the past, when the sector depended more on interpersonal connections. She mentioned that in the past, she could have gotten in touch with the actor directly if she needed anything.

She now has to work her way up through the management structure, which consists of the manager, the manager's sub-manager, and the agency. She said she thought this procedure was "very clinical" and that it was the reason why relationships between people are collapsing.

Farah also draws attention to the advantages of the current industry landscape, saying, "The industry is far more organized today; people come on time, there is a studio system in place, so all the contracts are proper, kisi ke paise koi khaa nahi sakta hai (No one can take away another's money)."

Farah Khan made her feature film debut 20 years ago with Main Hoon Na with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role. She was a choreographer before that.
