Economic crisis, Rajini’s salary plummets

The financial slowdown across the globe has finally caught up with the film industry. There were reports that many big budget films were shelved by corporate productions. The classic example of this happens to be Kamal Haasan’s Marma Yogi.

Several Bollywood actors, including Sanjay Dutt, have come forward to

reduce their pay packet keeping in mind the present scenario. The latest to join this bandwagon is the Superstar.
