Akshay kumar was insured for Rs 50 crore as he was doing his own stunts in the film Rowdy Rathore. Some of the stunts were death defying and the actor does not use a body double. Since everyone was worried about Akshay doing the scenes himself, the producers insured him even before the film started.
Previously, Ronnie Screwvala of UTV Motion Pictures, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films insured their films. The trend started with Subhash Ghai insuring his film Taal.
But, with Rowdy Rathore, the trend of insuring actors is catching up. Since stars like Salman Khan, John Abraham, Shah Rukh Khan, Sonu Sood, Sunny Deol, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Anil Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh among others do their own stunts, they may also get insured for their next films.
Hollywood films and stars are always insured and Bollywood is now following this trend.
