Akshay Kumar | Aamir Khan |
Shahrukh Khan | Saif Ali khan
The word is that the hot flavour of the season Akshay Kumar has
charged a huge sum just for lending his voice to one of his
upcoming projects- the animation film Jumbo.
Now like a true blue B-Town guy Akki has always refused to talk
about the acting fee he charges but the big buzz is that the actor
is creating a new record of sorts, as far as his remuneration is
Apparently he has been paid a whopping sum of Rs. 9 crore to dub
for the character of an elephant in the film made by Percept
Picture Company. And that's not all. The actor will get half the
profit that the film makes.
As a result of this deal, Akshay will have to complete the
shooting of PPC's stalled project Eight By Ten which is being
directed by Nagesh Kukunoor. It has been stuck since last year due
to some irreconcilable differences between Akshay and Kukunoor. The
film is supposedly a psychological thriller and Akki plays a man
with amazing mental powers. It probably is inspired by Manoj Night
Shyamalan's Unbreakable which starred Bruce Willis and Samuel L
B-Town has almost lost confidence in bad boy Salman Khan as he
has a string of flops in a row now- God Tussi Great Ho, Hello and
Yuvvraaj which kind of benefits the hit machine in a big way!
Looking at the current status of Kinng Kumar, it seems that King
Khan and even Aamir Khan have a lot to worry about!
