Mumbai: Action hero Akshay Kumar has made headlines for increasing his fees. According to the ‘Bollywood Hungama’, Akshay Kumar increased his fees during the ‘Unlock’ phase. It should be pertinent to mention here that Akshay is one of the highest paid actors in the Hindi film industry. On average, two to three Akshay Kumar starrers appear on the screens every year. However, 2020 was an exception due to the outbreak of the pandemic.
Sources said Akshay charged Rs 99 crore for signing a movie before the lockdown. After the lockdown, he has increased his fees to Rs 117 crore per film. However, that didn’t stop producers from lining up to sign him. So Akshay has said that for every movie with him coming out in 2020, he will charge Rs 135 crore.
Only one Akshay movie was released on OTT platform in 2020. It was the comedy horror movie Laxmi bomb
Akshay’s upcoming movies include Sooryavanshi, Atrangi Re, Prithviraj, Ram Setu, Mission Lion, Raksha Bandhan and much more.
