Akshay Kumar is one of the most skilled and accomplished artists Bollywood has ever seen. With four consecutive big hits in the past year, Akshay has once again become the most sought after superstar in the industry. So much that now he is going to charge more than 100 crores for his next film.
As per a leading Indian entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, Mr. Khiladi has signed Sajid Nadiadwala’s new project ‘Houseful 4’ and his fee will be INR 120 crores for the project.
Directed by Anand L. Rai, the film will also feature Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush in pivotal roles. An announcement is expected in the next couple of weeks.
A source privy to the development told Bollywood Hungama:
“Akshay Kumar is known to charge upfront fees and in today’s time, his name attracts the audience not just in the cinema hall but also gets lucrative offers from digital and satellite networks. Akshay and his team believe that the actor deserves 100 crores plus as acting fees for the goodwill that he brings to the project.”
Rumor has it that the ‘Kesari’ actor is also receiving offers from several digital companies and satellite channels for multi-film deals which Akshay has declined because they don’t match with his demands.
Besides that, Akshay Kumar will also star in Rohit Shetty’s forthcoming action thriller ‘Sooryavanshi’ alongside Katrina Kaif. The film is set to hit the screens in March this year.
