New Delhi, Dec 8: Member of Parliament and actor Ravi Kishan on Wednesday proposed royalty for actors of all over India in the Lok Sabha.
Ravi said that BJP government has always thought of the film industry and made sure that lyricists and singers get their royalties and should help actors get the same too.
“This tradition is there in Hollywood and China, and we should have it here in India too. Right now, the actors only get a fee and that’s about it. This will help cases like that of actor Bharat Bhushan among others, who have to go through sad days at the far end of their careers”, said the actor.
Ravi also suggested that the percentage of royalty can be decided on screen time of the actor in the film.
