Bollywood may be in trouble, and it is only to blame for that. Akshay Kumar has long mesmerised Indians and the rest of the world with its dazzling all-singing, all-dancing brand of big-screen escapism and has earned them one of its biggest and brightest stars. However, landing in trouble like other stars. Do you think after all these flops, these inflated star fees are worth it?
According to the Koimoi website, which analyses industry data, of the 26 Bollywood films released this year, 20 — or 77% — have been box office duds, which are those that lose 50% or more of their initial investment.
That is roughly twice as many failures as in 2019 when the pandemic upended society and made hundreds of millions of people wean themselves from the movies, which had been Bollywood’s primary source of income for decades.
As a result, these inflated star fees seem like an injustice.
Let’s check a few names here:
One hero who will be releasing at least three to four films is Akshay Kumar. He is the busiest hero and would receive between Rs 85 and Rs 90 crore for each movie. According to reports, Akshay Kumar’s net worth for each film is approximately Rs 120 crore.
2. Aamir Khan
The Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood is Aamir Khan. Even though Aamir Khan only releases one movie every two years, he ensures it is done with quality material. Filmmakers are lining up to work with him on his projects since they bring large box office receipts. Aamir Khan would receive between Rs 70 and Rs 80 crore in compensation for each movie, and his net value for each film, which includes a cut of the earnings, is predicted to be about Rs 100 crore.
3. Ajay Devgn
Ajay Devgn maintains a widespread reputation among viewers. Devgn, well-known for playing fierce parts, will want close to Rs 60 as payment for each movie. His estimated net worth for each film is $75 million.
4. Shahid Kapoor
After the 2019 movie’s release, Kabir Singh has continued to sign films and is even getting ready to make his OTT debut with a web series. Shahid Kapoor reportedly charges Rs 35 crore for each movie, while his net worth for each film is reportedly Rs 50 crore.
