Actor Shivaji, who has been a part of several successful low-budget Telugu films over the years, says that such kind of movies guarantee high returns over those that are lavishly made on a high budget and low content value.
Shivaji is now busy promoting his upcoming movie Boochamma Boochodu, which is a low-budget horror-comedy film. Talking to media, he said, "I have starred in several low-budget films. The success rate of my films is higher than several star-studded films that are made on a minimum budget of Rs 30 crore. The problem with all the big-budget films is that quality of content takes a toll in the end."
The actor added, "A movie made in Rs 25 crore may earn Rs 30 crore at the Box Office. But it would have made less profit compared to a Rs 5 crore film that earns about Rs 20 crore at the ticket window. A low-budget film with good content always guarantees high returns."
Shivaji's latest Boochamma Boochodu is slated to release on Friday. Shivaji said, "The film has been lying in the cans for a while now. The problem with small films is that they don't get theatres for release. Theatres are controlled by producers who favour films featuring stars. Many small films with good content seldom have limited release due to lack of theatres."
Boochamma Boochodu also features Kainaz Motiwala, Brahmanandam, Srinivas Reddy and Tagubothu Ramesh in important roles.
