Some section of the media reported that Akshay Kumar has been paid
Rs.71 crore for a film by UTV. However, the production house
clarified that the report is not true.
In a press statement, UTV stated that the speculation on
Akshay's fee is disturbing and damaging the company and its
shareholders. The statement said that the fee offered to Akshay is
not even half the amount reported by the media.
