Akshay Kumar who is gearing up for his next, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, has reportedly reduced his fees for friend and producer, Sajid Nadiadwala, in light of the pandemic.
According to Filmfare, Kumar who normally charges between Rs 110-120 crores for a film has agreed to do ‘Bachchan Pandey’ for Rs 99 crores. It’s also been said that the number nine is a special number for both, hence the decision to go with Rs 99 crores.
Directed by Farhad Samji, the film is expected to go on floors early next year and also stars Kriti Sanon, Jacqueline Fernandez and Arshad Warsi. Currently Kumar is in the midst of wrapping up ‘Atrangi Re’, which is being directed by Aanand L Rai.
