New Delhi: Corporates have changed the economics of moviemaking, says veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai who has been making films for 35 years. He believes star fees as well as the cost of production has gone up, making most filmmakers run into losses."When big corporate companies entered the film industry, the cost of production as well as the cost of stars witnessed a drastic jump. A star used to take Rs. 3 crore for a film, but his or her fees jumped up to Rs. 30 crore. These big companies changed the grammar of business," Ghai told reporters in an interview here."There`s a lot of competition and to please investors, filmmakers used to say, `See we are working with a Khan`. The economics went for a roller-coaster ride and after an imbalance, filmmakers suffered losses. Now all the filmmakers are running into losses because they played it the wrong way. The pressure of a star on a producer is too high," added the 66-year-old.
