Rajinikanth's upcoming Tamil movie Rana might have been temporarily shelved, but it has not stopped the movie from being in the news. The latest speculation, which is doing rounds in Kollywood, is that the superstar received Rs. 24 crores as a first instalment of his remuneration.
The Endhiran, who is the second highest paid actor in South Asia after Jackie Chan, has also major shares in the film, as the movie is co-produced by his daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth. The movie is said to be made with a budget of Rs. 100 crores and the actor is reportedly getting Rs. 40 crores alone as a remuneration other than a share in the profit, says a report.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth, who left India to Singapore for further treatment is recovering well. His son-in-law has recently said that the actor would return to India in a few weeks. However, the project might delay for another six months, as the doctors have advised him to be in bed rest.
