The famous Russian director, actor and presenter Nikita Mikhalkov recently talked about the salaries of some artists. He reported on the amount of fees for such artists as Pavel Derevyanko, Maxim Vitorgan, Sasha Bortich, Ekaterina Shpitsa and other stars.
It turned out that they all earn from 100 to 300 thousand rubles for one day of filming.
Derevyanko earns 300 thousand rubles a day, Bortich – 200 thousand rubles, Vitorgan is exemplary about 200 thousand rubles. The famous blogger Lena Miro noted that in addition to good earnings on the set, all of the above actors and their colleagues in the workshop also earn good money performing in the theater and they are entrusted with state salaries, which are paid from Russians’ taxes.
Lena claims that all the named amounts are very high for artists, unusual for all of the above, so much as if she does not consider them talented. Therefore, Miro came up with the initiative to pave a tax reform, according to which the tax rate for all artists should be increased to exemplary 90%. Lena believes that in cinema there are people whose work makes more sense – these are screenwriters, directors, cameramen, but for some reason the actors earn more than them, and in fact they work the smallest of all on the set.
