Actor Prabhas has reportedly increased his remuneration to a staggering Rs 120 crore at a time when movies are battling to gross more than Rs 100 crore at the box office.
According to a source on Bollywoodlife.com, the actor, who is well known for his work in the “Baahubali” franchise, has increased his remuneration to a respectable amount.
Even though his costs were rumored to be between Rs 90 and Rs 100 crore, the actor is said to have requested a raise of about Rs 20 crore from the “Adipurush” producers.
The producers, who are already under strain, have apparently felt more pressure as a result of this action.
According to reports, if they grant the actor’s request, the budget for the movie will go up by about 25% because there is still a sizable amount of filming to be done.
According to the report, there can be unwelcome friction on the sets if the team refuses Prabhas’ demand.
The actor’s fees have increased just as his previous movie, “Radhe Shyam,” experienced a box office failure. Despite having a huge budget, the movie didn’t succeed in drawing large audiences.
