Baahubali 2 starrer Prabhas hikes his fee after the massive success of the film!
Now that the magnum opus, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has finally set a new benchmark by entering the Rs 1000 crore club, the makers and the whole cast and crew of the film are on cloud 9.
According to the reports of Bollywoodlife.com, the male lead of the film, Prabhas has hiked his fee post the grand success of the film. The report quotes an insider saying, “Prabhas has upped his fee by Rs 5 crore. He feels that it is only fair for him to demand the remuneration considering that he had given his 5 years to a movie that has turned out to be blockbuster like none other.”
For the Baahubali series, the actor had earned Rs 25 crore. Now with this fee hike, he would be demanding around Rs 30 crore.
Talking to Bollywood Life about the risks related to the film, Prabhas says, “There is definitely a risk because first of all we had six months training and we knew it’s going to take time. The first most important thing was as a principle actor I should give time to Rajamouli’s mad passion Baahubali. And luckily I know him for 10 years and I was like if something works and if people like it, it is going to give something which I can never forget in my life. For that believing Rajamouli, his hard work, his genius mind, so I just thought I want to take the risk and for this risk I should only give him time.”
Well, knowing that the actor had turned down many film offers and had even postponed his marriage, just to focus on SS Rajamoili’s Baahubali, the fee hike seems to be reasonable. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comment section.
