Superstars like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Shah Rukh Khan, among others have been ruling Bollywood for decades and there’s still no stopping for them. All these actors are charging a whopping amount for every film and South sensation Prabhas has now joined them in the list of highest-paid stars. Yes, you read that right! After the humongous success of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali, Prabhas established himself as a pan-India star and his stardom is giving tough competition to other superstars.
Prabhas’ line-up includes several interesting projects like Radhe Shyam, Adi Purush, Salaar, Project K, and Spirit. Most of these are produced by T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar and the actor is charing a huge amount for these films. As per the latest buzz, he has now become the highest-paid actor in the film industry after Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan.
Revealing the same, a source told Bollywood Hungama that, “The actor has reportedly charged Rs. 150 crores flat to be a part of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Spirit, and with this, he has emerged as the highest-paid actor of India today. He got Rs. 150 crores for Adipurush as well”.
While he’s not the only actor to get this amount, take a look at other stars who have also charged over 100 crores for their films:
