Yogi Babu while answering his question asked the producer to approach him directly instead of believing the rumours. The comedy actor said “”If I had demanded hefty pay from all the producers, I would have been jobless by now. In fact, for many projects, I’ve compromised on my salary to encourage deserving talents. I even did a couple of movies for your company as well. You know how much I got for it. People often say that I’ve easily become a successful comedian as I didn’t have any competition. But I would like to register that I’ve always faced competition. Lot of people have fought similar battles and won in the past, and new comedians might replace me in the future. It’s just a matter of time.”
