In this interview

Aamir Khan says most Bollywood actors are filming at various stages 30 to 40 films at any one time. Is this true and the norm in Bollywood?

    I watched the clip - and wanted to clarify that he's claiming many actors are in the process of filming 30-40 films at the same time. Just wanted to clarify that it wasn't just that they sign up for 30-40 films in the future.

  • Probably not intentionally or consciously, I'd think, but they probably slice and dice footage across as many films as they can, kind of like the porn industry. Feb 13 '19 at 21:46

  • @newguy - Yes. Apparently some adult stars show up in hundreds of titles, and I heard one complaining that she was paid for a handful of shoots, but then appeared in so many more by reusing the same footage, or different camera angles of the same scenes, but she didn't get additional pay. Don't know if they still do that, or if the actors are more savvy about how they structure their compensation these days. I don't actually follow the industry that closely (probably the mantra of every perv who is obsessed with porn, but I gotta put that disclaimer out there). Feb 14 '19 at 16:59
