Well, how much is the fee per film in Bollywood? Who takes how much, who takes more? When you hear such a question, the faces of the three Khans will appear in your mind, won’t you? “If I don’t say so?”
There is no competition for 3 Khans in Bollywood. Along with them, Akshay-Hrithik is also not behind. Much of the success of a film depends on the name of the Actor. So during the contract, they sit for more than the skyrocketing fee. But who gets how much? Who is taking the highest salary?
In Bollywood, the star actors are far ahead of the star actresses in the race for remuneration. Among the star actors, one or the other of the three Khans was at the top as they were paid highest for two or three decades. But the current situation has changed. Someone charged almost twice as much as the Khans! He is Prabhas, the famous hero of Bahubali.
Let’s take a look at the names of the top five actors who are paid per Bollywood movie:
Prabhas took Rs 25 crore to act in the first film of the history-making ‘Bahubali’ series at the box office. In ‘Bahubali-2’, it jumped to Rs 80 crore. And in recent times it has stopped at 100 crores. He will come with a movie called Adipurush. The entire film will be shot in 3D. The cost of VFX alone will be around two and a half crore rupees. The total budget of the film is 500 crore rupees. Will be released in several other languages including Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Prabhas is also taking 100 crore rupees in this film.
‘Dabangg’ star Salman Khan has been giving away one hit film after another at the box office for the last decade. If you know that Salman Khan is in a movie, the audience stumbles in the theater to see it. Despite not receiving many awards in recognition of his work, Salman’s popularity in Bollywood is skyrocketing. With the popularity of Salman’s remuneration is increasing day by day. The 56-year-old actor is currently earning Rs 80 crore per film.
Aamir Khan started his journey in Bollywood as a child artist. Aamir stunned everyone with his amazing performance in the movie ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ which was released in 1988. In recognition, he was awarded the Special Jury Award from the National Film Awards of India. He also won the Filmfare Award for Best Newcomer. He later gave away many successful films. He has also been acclaimed for his performances in different genres of storytelling and message-based films.

He is getting around Rs 45 crore for acting in each film.
The popularity of ‘Khiladi’ star Akshay Kumar is also eye-catching. She has everything she needs to be a popular Bollywood star.
