Bollywood celebrities rule the roost in India. Their fans adore their lifestyle and try to achieve the same. I have always told you about various interesting facts on Bollywood stars and how they live luxurious lives. You might be aware that they earn not just from films but a lot more from endorsements, social media, and other events. Here, you will get to know about four of the greatest Bollywood superstars who charge just for starring in a movie. Moreover, if that’s someone like Akshay Kumar, more than one film in a year is guaranteed.
The only Bollywood actor featured in the Forbes’ highest-paid actors 2020 list is none other than Akshay Kumar. In fact, he established a Rs 700 crore box-office last year. Each of his latest movies- Good Newwz, Housefull 4, Mission Mangal, and Kesari, crossed ₹150 crores at the box office. Well, that’s another level of success. So, it is definitely not surprising if he is charging ₹120 crores for his role in Aanand L Rai’s Atrangi Re. Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan will be seen in pivotal roles.
Just as Akshay Kumar is the leading man in Bollywood, we have Bollywood’s lady-love as Deepika Padukone. Currently, she is the highest-paid actress in the Bollywood industry. The gorgeous actress charged nearly Rs 20 crores for a film directed by Ashwin Nag. And, she is starring opposite Prabhas in this tentatively titled- Prabhas 21, produced by Vyjayanthi Movies. Deepika asked to be paid over Rs 50 crore as paid to the lead actor Prabhas. However, she settled at 20 crores.
A good storyline is undoubtedly a major issue in a lot of movies. Still, the Bollywood’s Dabangg always manages to kill it at the box office. The film – Eid is listed among the highest-grossing movies. Now, it will not be a surprise to any of us if we hear a Salman Khan movie crossing 200 crores. So, why won’t a profitable actor like him charge a hefty fee? Reports say that 60 crore was the signing amount for his film Tubelight. Let me tell you, 60 crores is Salman’s minimum profit irrespective of the movie’s success. Well, that’s the amount for its satellite rights.
If any Bollywood celebrity can give Hollywood stars a run for their money, it is Hrithik Roshan. 2019 has been an excellent year for this 46-year old, as he got back-to-back hits like War and Super 30. Super 30 got him critical acclaim, whereas War got him a huge pay-cheque. The Krrish actor charged over 48 crores to star in this Siddharth Anand’s action movie where Tiger Shroff was his costar. Sources say that producers are fine with his charges as the return of their investment is enormous. Satellite and digital prices attained are equally high. So it’s no big deal for his producers to cover the costs.
