Allu Aravind, veteran director and Allu Arjun's father, has shocked many people with his latest comments on actor Yash. Allu Aravind spoke on the influence of actor fees on a film's budget during the Kotabommali PS teaser premiere. He made a remark about performers receiving higher pay following hits.
Allu Aravind stated during the occasion that his production company, Geetha Arts, is now focused on modest films owing to financial constraints. He was questioned if celebrities raise their rates after a blockbuster, which impacts the film's budget, citing Allu Arjun and others in his family who purportedly charge higher pay.

He denied that actors' pay led to excessive film expenses, saying, "The lead actor of a film receives only 20 to 25% of the film's budget as remuneration." As a result, it is not accurate to say that the film's budget would grow only due to his compensation. A lot of money is invested to make the movie a large endeavour, on top of the performers' compensation."
Allu Arvind’s Sarcastical Comments on Yash:
Aravind cited Yash, who is most known for the pan-India success of his 'KGF' series, and stated that his films were successful because of the 'richness' of the production. "Who was Yash before the KGF movie came out? Why was that movie so loud? That wealth was important in the film's success. This is but one example. Whoever the hero of the film is, it is the making that draws the audience," he continued.
Netizens Bashes Allu Aravind:
His remarks about Yash and his flicks did not sit well with several individuals on social media. "KGF is special only because of Yash," one user said on X. "It's unthinkable without him. His contribution is as follows. What's the matter with this guy?" Another user said, "I think he needs to talk about his own nepotism product Arjun first than talking about self-made superstar Yash."
Another person commented, "Even Allu Arjun was a small hero in tier-2 range, who used to compete with Vijay Devarakonda until his big movie Alavaikuntapuram lo." "There's nothing wrong with people saying they didn't know who Yash was before KGF," another person stated.
