Akshay Kumar Charging ₹ 120 Crores For His Next Isn’t True

Mohnish Singh |Jan 28, 2020

Akshay Kumar is one of the most sought-after actors in Bollywood. Filmmakers are ready to shell out any amount to have him in their films because his name guarantees success.

Akshay Kumar is without an ounce of doubt one of the most sought-after actors in the tinsel town of Bollywood. His presence in a film ensures that audiences rush to theatres in droves. Apart from being one of the most sought-after actors, Akshay Kumar is also one of the highest paid actors in Hindi cinema. However, a rumour about his fee for an upcoming film has been doing the rounds lately, which is completely untrue.

A couple of days ago, several media outlets reported that Khiladi Kumar is taking home a fat salary cheque of ₹ 120 for his next film with director Aanand L Rai. This story swirling around in media and on social media is utterly baseless.

A leading publication reports that Akshay Kumar has not even signed the film on the dotted line, then how can he charge ₹ 120 for the said project. The actor is still in talks with the filmmaker, and the negotiations have not yet come to discussing the fee as yet. Secondly, as we all know, Akshay Kumar does not charge his fee upfront. It has been a couple of years since he takes a part of the overall box-office earnings of the film as his fee. Mostly, Kumar is a producer on all the films that he acts in. So where is question of a fee?

When the same publication got in touch with a close friend of Akshay Kumar and asked him about the exorbitant fee, he could not stop laughing. He said that this is some marketing wizard’s idea of boosting a star’s market value. Akshay is without doubt the biggest superstar of Hindi cinema with four superhits in 2019 alone. So, saying charges X amount or Y amount is not going to raise eyebrows. But the fact is, no actor in India gets the kind of money that is being quoted.
