The remuneration being paid to superstar Akshay Kumar has been the favourite subject of discussion all over. The prices being speculated vary from Rs.31 crores to Rs.70 crores. While we will explain the truth (if any!) and the nitti–gritties of the same later, here is something much more interesting.
As per trade sources, Akshay Kumar has been paid a whopping Rs.9 crores for dubbing the dialogues and participating in the picturisations of two promotional songs for Percept Picture Company's animation film, Jumbo. What is amazing about this deal is that Akshay Kumar does not have a deep baritone voice and it is not one of his strong points.
For the information of the fans of Akshay Kumar and all others, the upcoming Jumbo is all set to hit the screens on 18th December 2008, a week before Aamir Khan's Ghajini.
