Akshay Kumar gets Rs 40 crore for Rumi Jaffery’s film?

Akshay KumarAkshay Kumar is one of  the highest paid actors in the industry today, and with the number of films that he signs per year, he earns in excess of Rs 100 cr through film assignments alone.

The actor has now gone one step further and charged Rs 40 crore for Rumi Jaffery’s upcoming film, the shooting of which will be completed in less than 3 weeks! You heard it right – if industry insiders are to be believed, the actor has been paid Rs 40 crore for a 3 week assignment.

The yet-to-be-titled film is a remake of Basu Chatterjee’s 1982 film Shaukeen which featured Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt, A.K. Hangal, Rati Agnihotri and Mithun Chakraborty.

A source close to the development says, Nargis Fakhri has been signed to play the female lead while veteran actors like Anupam Kher and Paresh Rawal have pivotal roles to play.

No prizes for guessing the highest taxer payer of 2013-14!

I have no idea why Akshay is being paid this much, compared to other stars.
Anyways, the more the producers pay, the lesser their profits.

I’m surprised. 40 Crores is too much unless someone gives you guarantee of the success.

Akshay Kumar is not one of the highest paid actors. He alone is the highest paid actor in Bollywood followed by Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh Khan etc.
For those who don’t agree, google!

However Salman Khan earns the highest each film because he has a profit share too in addition to his regular fee.

Nolanitjee.producers wont get losses with akshay.they wil get their 40cr with satelight rights only.shooting of the movie will complete within 3weeks means budjet wil not more than 20 to 25 cr.so they wil get profits within first weekend.

your comment is full of jokes. akki sir with bb, can’t believe, does akki sir has any blockbuster without multi-starer (welcome) and south remake (rowdy rathore).
my question is does akki sir has a solo blockbuster without a south remake in his 22 years career???

salmans max of hits r remakes.
srks most of big hits multistarrers.dtph,oso,kkhh,kkkg,kank,

@kunal bro,,
Do you know how much zero’s are there in 40 crores? Producers are not crazy that they will give huge payment without thinking.they are much much much more intelligent then you.they know only akshay can give profits to them after such huge payments.

40cr for 21days.it means approx 2cr per day.
producers know who is best.
khiladi rocks

JM:  (May 12, 2013 at 9:03 am)

Akshay had a work of only 20 days in Khiladi 786 (for which he was paid Rs 20 cr) and that was evident from the film itself. The film appeared to be shot in haste and the whole cast looked disinterested in the project. Hope that Akki doesn’t rush in making films quickly. 3 movies a year is perfect.

My predictions:
OUATIMA : Superhit/bb
Boss : superhit
Thuppakki remake : Bb
Entertainment : hit/superhit
Ghutka : hit/superhit
Housefull 3 : superhit

Again the producer will face huge loss
the film will hardly cross 70 cr.
So producer gets 30 cr.
So 10 cr. Loss
