Akshay Kumar’s box office presence needs no introduction. He has always managed to choose great story lines that have brought in audiences from all over, which makes his overall market value very high. This has lead to numerous reports stating that Kumar is charging Rs. 120 Crore for Aanand L. Rai’s next, which is being said as someone’s figment of imagination.
A source stated, “They are in talks. And the negotiations haven’t yet come to discussing the fee as yet. Secondly, Akshay doesn’t charge his fee upfront. He takes a part of the overall box office profits as his fee. More likely than not, Akshay is a producer on all the films that he acts in. So where is question of a fee? 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,” as according to Deccan Chronicle.
Kumar was last seen in ‘Good Newwz’ (2019).
