"Hrithik still prefers to charge a bomb when he gives his nod"
Actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff are all set to come together for an upcoming film.
The film is reportedly titled Fighters and it will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
It will be produced by Yash Raj Films and the film is expected to be an action thriller, making the on-screen association of the two actors together for the first time ever.
Despite not being in a film for two years, Hrithik’s stardom is still high which means his salary is high.
It has been reported that the actor will be paid a high fee for Anand’s directorial. A source claimed:
“Hrithik has been paid to the tune of Rs. 48 Crore (£5.4 million) for Siddharth Anand’s Hrithik vs Tiger.
“The film is a huge actioner and is being readied for a holiday release. While a lot of the other superstars take profit percentages in their films, Hrithik still prefers to charge a bomb when he gives his nod to the film.”
It is not just Hrithik who will reportedly have a huge payment, Tiger also has high salary demands.
The upcoming action film is expected to be made on a lavish scale and apparently producer Aditya Chopra is going all out to ensure that the film is a visual spectacle.
On Hrithik’s payment, the source added:
“The producers are completely fine with the money they invest on him because having Hrithik also promises them a good opening and great returns on their investments.
“His films also fetch a moderately high price on satellite and digital too. So the producers find it easy to cover the costs too.”
The rumours have also suggested that the Hrithik’s fees are next to the Khans and Akshay Kumar.
While it is rumoured that the film is called Fighters, it is unconfirmed. It is also unknown when the film will release.
Apart from Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, the film will also feature Vaani Kapoor.
On the work front, Hrithik will next star in Vikas Bahl’s Super 30. The film will release on July 26, 2019.
The actor last starred in Kaabil where it did quite well at the box office. However, huge hopes are pinned on his 2019 releases.
