Producer Keyar, who called Vijay's Jilla and Ajith Kumar's Veeram flops at the Box Office recently, has now targeted actors. Once again, at a film function, he blasted those actors, who work without understanding the reality and demand huge pay cheques.
At the audio release function of forthcoming Tamil film Snehavin Kadhalargal, Keyar shared his unhappiness over some actors. Interestingly, he did not reveal the names, but blasted those, who doesn't care for producers.
In his words, there are some actors, who don't even know how to book flight tickets or train tickets in Tamil film industry. But they made it a point to increase their remuneration irrespective of their films' performance at the Box Office.
Recalling a funny incident, Keyar said that recently a director approached an actor to act in a movie. The actor gave a conditional nod by saying that he would act only if a big banner backs the project.

Keyar is also disappointed because if a movie flops, it won't affect an actor because he still has movies in his kitty. But it will virtually end many directors/producers' careers.

750+ Unsold Films
But they are not aware of over 750 movies, which have not been acquired by TV channels. And, these producers blame Producers' Council for not helping them in selling their movie rights.
Keyar Cites One More Example
Keyar told the media that recently producer Suresh Kamatchi, who is making forthcoming movie Kangaroo, blamed the producers guild claiming that the association has not failed to protect its members interests.
However, Keyar recently created a furure when he said that Ajith Kumar's Veeram and Vijay's Jilla, which were released last months, were utter flops. Distributors from some regions are suffering huge losses.
