You won’t believe how much Akshay Kumar is being paid for his digital debut on Amazon
Digital OTT platforms have taken the film industry by storm. It gave us some terrific web series like ‘Sacred Games’ and ‘Mirzapur’ to name a few. Actors like Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have acquired a new found fanbase. Now, just a few days back, superstar Akshay Kumar made an announcement regarding his digital debut. Yes, the Khiladi Kumar has collaborated with Amazon for a series.
The announcement of his Prime Original Series was made amidst much fanfare, where Akshay Kumar literally set himself on fire. The action-packed thriller series is tentatively titled ‘The End’. At the event, Akshay revealed that it was his son Aarav who convinced him to be a part of this series. Akshay is hands down one of the most bankable actors in Bollywood.
So what enticed him to try his hands in the digital world? Well, if recent reports are anything to go by, then the actor has been paid a whopping sum of around Rs. 90 crores for being a part of this project. A source close to the project told Bollywood Hungama, “Akshay’s fees is in the vicinity of over Rs 90 crore rupees, if not more. To begin with, Akshay was not keen to do a digital series. Amazon pursued him relentlessly. They hope to get in more Bollywood superstars.”
Well, if you are being paid so handsomely then why would one turn down the offer?
We are looking forward to seeing this action-packed series which will see Akshay doing what he is best known for.
