A banner that has bargained with everyone from Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan to Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor, never agreeing to pay the Bollywood superstars their full market price has just had to bow to Salman Khan.
Says a source, “This banner is desperate to work with Salman. For their spy thriller, that will be shot in at least seven foreign locations, they have apparently signed him for 17.5 crore plus a share in the profits.”
Salman has been getting even better remuneration from many of his other producers. However this price is the highest price paid to an actor by this banner.
Our source clarifies, “Aamir who has worked with this banner in the past and who is working with them again in 2012 is also getting a lucrative price and has a profit-sharing arrangement. However it is Salman’s ability to be able to knock out money from these guys which is now the talking point in Naaz Building (Bollywood’s stock exchange).”
Incidentally, Ranbir who has done two movies for this production house in the past has allegedly told the scion of this movie empire that for their next project he wants a full-bound script and his full market price which is around 15 crore.
Looks like after Salman’s case, actors will start re-negotiating with this banner. TOI
