Filmmaker Farah Khan calls for reining in rising actor entourage costs burdening producers


“Burgeoning Entourage Costs Burdening Producers, Says Veteran Filmmaker”

Experienced filmmaker Farah Khan has weighed in on the rising costs associated with star entourages, stating they are creating an unnecessary financial burden on producers. In an interview, the acclaimed director acknowledged both positive and negative changes within the industry over her 20-year career.

Among the drawbacks highlighted was the growth of entourage teams accompanying actors on set. Farah observed stars now arrive with groups of 8-9 assistants, whose roles offer no value to the final production. She feels controlling these costs is crucial, as they significantly inflate budgets without contributing visible value.

Farah isn't alone in voicing such views. Recently, actor Kriti Sanon also touched on the issue plaguing . When discussing intelligently managing unnecessary expenses as a producer herself, Kriti questioned reports of a prominent actor being accompanied by multiple personal chefs, whose fees were shouldered by the film's financial backers.

As an industry veteran having assisted several major productions in her early career, Farah understands the pressures facing creators. Her comments stem from a desire to maximize resources devoted directly to crafting compelling cinematic experiences, rather than non-contributing overhead. If changes are implemented, it could help boost industry sustainability at a time of increased fiscal scrutiny.
