We all know that Thugs of Hindostan is featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in leading roles, apart from Aamir. The film is reportedly scheduled to release in 2018.
Do you know how much did the cast got paid?
Amitabh Bachchan- The legendary actor who plays Khudabaksh in the epic film has reportedly charged Rs. 17 crores for this role.
Katrina Kaif- For her portrayal as the sultry Suraiyya in the film, Katrina has reportedly charged Rs. 9.2 crores.
Fatima Sana Shaikh- The actress who caught everyone’s attention with her performance in ‘Dangal’ is now playing Zafira in this movie. She was reportedly paid Rs. 2 crores for the film.
Aamir Khan - It is speculated that Khan charged Rs. 60 crores for his role as Firangi in the film, but in an interview, he mentioned that he does not take a ‘salary’ from his movies, but relatively take the profit cuts, which for this movie is 70% of it.
A trade insider is quoted as saying, "Aamir will pocket almost 70 percent of the profits while Adi will keep the remaining percentage. Fact is, after Dangal made Rs 1000 crore, now few people question Aamir on his deals. If TOH makes that amount of money, Adi (Aditya Chopra) will get almost Rs 300 crore which is much more than any of his own home productions."
