Superstar charged 2 Crore per day?


Akshay-Kumar-remunerationBesides Rajamouli’s Baahubali, Rajinikanth starrer Robot 2 is one big film everybody is waiting for. It’s needless to speak about the budgets, scale and volume of these two films.

The Shankar directorial – Robot 2 point 0- is being made on budget of massive 400 Crores and now, an interesting speculation about Akshay Kumar’s remuneration is putting everything about the film in shade. Yes, if the rumors are to be believed, the Bollywood actor who recently won a National award for Rustom is charging a bomb for his antagonist character in this trilingual (Tamil, Telugu and Hindi) film.

Although Akshay Kumar was highly excited to work opposite Rajinikanth, a speculation has it that he has charged a whopping 2 Crore per day, as part of his remuneration, for playing 12 characters – and all of them had high amount of aesthetics and make-up to put up everyday. Interestingly, this is apparently first film wherein Akshay Kumar had to put on so much of make-up in his 25-years of acting career.

Being rolled out by Subaskaran Allirajah under Lyca Productions, the Sci-fiction features Amy Jackson in the female lead role and she’s definitely the one to look forward for, thanks to Shankar’s style of showcasing leading women.
