Bollywood is all about being glamorous. Do you know recently an actor in Bollywood just doubled his fee? Well, to give you more insight on the news, our very own King Khan has doubled his fees and is now charging a bomb to sign any new projects in his corner.
Padmavati is in news for many reasons now. Presently the latest reports doing the rounds stated that Shah Rukh Khan, who was believed to have been approached to play Raja Rawal Ratan Singh, thought of an interesting excuse to turn down the film. According to a media channel, the Bollywood king hiked up his fees and as the demand was 'way too high', SBL was forced to look for other options.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is very much talked about for its casting couch. According to the latest buzz, Shahrukh Khan, who was approached to play Deepika Padukone’s husband before Shahid Kapoor doubled his fees to avoid the multi-crore periodic drama.
According to a close source, Shahrukh Khan increased his fee to reject Padmavati, ''Shahrukh Khan, who is busy with a number of projects doubled his fee to reject the role. Now he is one of the highest paid actors and his demand was too huge for the film and so that didn't happen". Yes! Also, there were was a strong buzz that due to Ranveer Singh's tantrums SLB even approached SRK to play the lead Allauddin Khilji, but all that never happened and it was just a baseless rumor.'' Shahrukh Khan usually demands 40-50 crore for every film but for SLB’s ‘Padmavati’, he has hiked his fees to 90 crores. Isn’t that insane.
We think stars are now more confined to the length of their roles and money they earn than doing a great movie and being a part of history.
