One can certainly presume that leading star cast and top technicians involved in making of Baahubali would have received large pay cheques for all the incredible work we’ve seen on silver screen. But, no one is sure who made the most money – whether Rajamouli or actor Prabhas!
Having made on a gigantic budget of 450 Crores, Baahubali already grossed 1250 Cr worldwide. The unbelievable budget for a project in India also shows what amount of risk was invested by producers Shobu and Prasad to run us through the world of Mahishmati.
Freshly, we have learned about stunning remunerations of filmmaker Rajamouli and the prime cast involved in film. For having made this magnum opus, the legendary director SS Rajamouli is apparently the ‘highest paid’ and he received Rs 28 Crore for two parts of this franchise. Standing next him is ‘darling’ Prabhas who pocketed INR 25 Crores for essaying two exemplary roles- Amarendra Baahubalj & Shivudu.
Anushka Shetty, who excelled in Devasena role, was paid 5 Crores for two parts of Baahubali. The stout Bhallaladeva played by Rana Daggubati was impressive and he took home a massive 15Crore pay cheque. The other two important characters of the movie – Sivagami (by Ramya Krishna) and Kattappa (by Satyaraj) received 2.5 Crore each.
Most of the technicians, including KK Senthil Kumar, Sabu Cyril, MM Keeravani and many others also earned too big for working on a bigger project.
