    Movie workers are not paid the right remuneration and they are vulnerable to exploitation.

    For the past one week , the Telugu Film Industry is embroiled in the controversy as one of the female member has alleged that junior artistes are not paid the right remuneration, they are harassed and even sought for sexual pleasure to get the roles in Telugu films. Moreover there are allegations that female upcoming artistes are not given chance and over importance given to ladies coming from other states are also making the jobs more challenging to the movie artistes of Telugu film Industry. How to tackle this situation ?

    I think, this is not an issue of Telugu film industry only. The issues of junior artists and female artists are generally common to the entire film industry across the board.

    The film industry is an entertainment industry. Even prior to the development of technology of film making, there used to be people to entertain the public by singing, dancing and acting in drama etc. The film industry is a glamour based industry also. People make compromises to enter the entertainment industry and earn money at faster pace. However, as far as female entertainment artists are concerned their career is comparatively shorter as after few years, newer entertainment artist take their place and push them in the background. Consider the fate of one time golden girl of Hindi cinema, Priyanka Chopra who had to move to Hollywood and play bolder scenes to keep herself relevant in the market.

    I think the issue of engaging artists from other states is also inspired by some political gimmick. The merchants of entertainment have to produce what is saleable in the market.

    The issue of payment to small role players and extra artists in a common issue in the entire globe in all the languages. The producers pay abnormal rates to the lead role players like heroes and heroines and well-settled artists. For some well-established side actors and comedians, they pay on an hourly basis. They have fixed rates. They will not be at a loss. But many of the heroine roles are only for romance and duets in many movies. So these producers try to find out the best possible option and who can attract an audience to the theatres. The shelf life of these lady actors will be very less and the same hero will be playing the hero role with mother and later on with the daughter of his earlier heroine. The field is a more glamour-oriented field and the persons who are interested to make some fast busks will accept some compromises. These are called professional hazards.
    The attitude of the people has to change and the time only has to find out a solution to these problems.

    These issues are not only related to the Telugu film industry, but it is happening all the movie industries. Most of the junior artist are not able to get an income which they have been promised. The female junior is not able to find proper roles, because they do not get such roles in films. Most female actresses need to sleep with the director for finding roles in the films. Only a few actresses have been successful in their life.
