Baahubali’s Prabhas will charge Rs 30 cr a film, but Salman, Shah Rukh way ahead
The epic battle movie has trumped Bollywood by becoming the country’s highest-grossing film to date. Baahubali 2 has made more than Rs 10 billion ($156 million) worldwide since hitting screens on April 28, according to experts.
Reports said Prabhas, who was paid Rs 25 crore for Baahubali 2, is now asking for Rs 30 crore per film. He will soon start shooting for Saaho that will hit the screens in 2018.
Not many in the Telugu film industry would be able to match Prabhas’ salary, but he is still nowhere close to the big shots of Bollywood.
Salman Khan, the reigning king of Bollywood, is charging a whopping Rs 60 crore per film. Most of the time he produces his own films so his actual profit could be much higher.
Aamir Khan also charges in the bracket of Rs 55-60 crore and Shah Rukh Khan is asking for Rs 40-45 crore for each film.
Akshay Kumar, the master of the Rs 100 crore club, goes for Rs 35-40 crore every film, but he releases 4-5 films in a year, so his actual profit could be way more than most of the actors listed here.
