Bollywood hotshot Shahid Kapur is known as the most bankable star and like any other actor he started bargaining for more remuneration after the stupendous success of his film “Kaminey” and the critical acclaim he is getting for his performance in dual roles.
Shahid was said to be being paid Rs 1 Cr per film until “Jab We Met” released and became an instant success. It is reported that he demanded and got Rs 5 Cr for “Kaminey”.
With back to back hits he is said to have demanded Rs 15 Cr when veteran producer-director Subhash Ghai approached him for a role in his next film.
Bollywood is ruled by success and success alone and so actors with hit films do charge fancy fee and get away with it.
