No doubt in the fact that today among the Bollywood stars, Akshay Kumar is one such actor who can make his any film a box office success. With every passing hits, Akki has not only increased his fees for his films but also hiked fees for an international show.
Recently, Akshay Kumar demanded $250,000 (approx Rs 1 crore) per show to Wizcraft CEO Viraf Sarkari for the Bachchan world tour titled Unforgettable. Wizcraft CEO shocked to hear his sky high fees. "Akshay is demanding fees which is equal to the sum of Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan", said Viraf. But, Viraf Sarkari is still in the process to convince Akshay to lower his price. The latest buzz is that he has agreed to cut his pay to half i.e, Rs 50 lakh per show.
Other film personalities who will also be a part of this mega event are Aishwarya Bachchan, Lara Dutta, Bipasha Basu and Riteish Deshmukh.
Not only shows and events, but Akki had also made a massive deal of Rs 11 crore with Percept Picture Company. The project will be handled by director Nagesh Kukunoor. Akshay is floating in crores.....isn't.
