Aamir Khan, Salman and Shahrukh Khan are still included in Bollywood’s biggest stars. These Khan are not only in the case of hit films but also in the case of earnings, are far ahead of the other Bollywood actors. But now three Khans do not take the fees to work in many films.
This does not mean that Aamir, Shahrukh and Salman are working in Free, but now a new trend is taking place in Bollywood. These stars keep a fixed part of the film’s profits.
Last week the news came that Aditya Chopra, who made ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ about stars like Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, 70 percent of the profits got ready to give to Aamir Khan.
Aamir Khan’s previous film ‘Dangle’ has earned around Rs 2,000 crore worldwide, that is, if Aamir had done this deal with the makers of ‘Dangal’, then he would get around Rs 1400 crore.
Aamir’s films easily cross the 500 million mark and if it is believed that “Thugs of Hindostan” will do business of at least Rs.1000 crores, then Aamir will get 700 crores from it.
Now the news is that Salman Khan has not taken any fees for ‘Tiger is alive’. Rather he has persuaded the makers to give Salman 50 percent share in the profits. Leaving ‘Tubalite’, Salman’s films easily earn between Rs 300 crores and Rs 600 crores.
If Salman Khan’s film ‘Tiger Jinda Hai’ has managed to earn 500 crores at the box office, Salman will get around 250 crores from it and this will be a huge amount.
Well, this trend is not something new in Bollywood. Aamir Khan has also been taking part in the earnings of films but he does not take fees in return, whereas many Bollywood stars also take a number of Star Fees and also participate in the profits. Salman often charges up to Rs 70 crores for a film but for Sultan.
He did not take the fee but had also asked for a share in the profits. The movie had earned about Rs 600 crore at the box office, so you can figure out how much Salman has got from the profits in the bigger part
Even stars like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar also take upfront fees for films and part of the profits are also between 50% to 80%
It is believed that at present, Aamir Khan is such a big star that does not take upfront fees but only part of the profit. Obviously the speed at which these big stars are making big money, the days are not far when these stars will earn up to 500 to 1000 crores from a movie.
