Surprised? So are we! Reportedly, Akshay Kumar is charging Rs 1 Crore per day for the shooting of his upcoming film Jolly LLB 2.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, ''The producers of Jolly LLB, a rather jolly first film that starred Arshad Warsi, have ambitiously signed on Akshay Kumar for the project. Kumar loved the script and readily agreed: but pulled out a little black book of his own decrees. Kumar requested to be paid per day. His per day fee is rumouredly Rs 1 Crores.''
''If the film takes 100 days to shoot, Kumar will make history of course. So obviously the producers are in a hurry to wrap schedules. What's more, Kumar has agreed to be on sets from 10am to 8pm only. If the set isn't ready, he still gets paid his fat purse.''

''We all know Akshay Kumar has replaced Arshad Warsi in Jolly LLB 2. But Arshad is not too happy about it. He said, "I am not doing it (Jolly LLB 2). Akshay is doing it. I was supposed to do it, but Fox Star Studios needed a bigger star, so they chose Akshay.f you have a bigger star, then even if the film is not that good, you still manage to cover the money so risk factor from the producer's point of view is less."
To which Akshay had replied, "I don't have anything to say (on Arshad's comment). Talk to producer. It is the call (decision) of producer. I did Welcome and not Welcome Back, but I did not feel bad. It was my franchise so should I feel bad?"
