Darsheel Safary to Harshaali Malhotra – Bollywood’s highest-paid child artistes
There goes a lot of struggles behind making a film. We all know that the major chunk of this production goes to the bank of the stars for portraying the larger-than-life characters. It’s not hidden from us, how much these celebs charge for their per day shoots. Bollywood stars and their multiple digits fees have always called for attention and surprisingly, the child artists these days too, do not lack behind when it comes to charging a whopping fee for their appearances.
Highest-paid child artistes in Bollywood
Darsheel Safary, who made his debut as a child artist in Aamir Khan‘s successful film ‘Taare Zameen Par’ was the one who actually started with this trend of highest-paid child artists ever. The cute boy who enthralled everyone with his innocence was apparently paid 3 Lakh rupees for ‘Bum Bum Bole’. According to the reports, that was the highest amount paid to a child artist then in the year 2010.
Harsh Mayer, who essayed the role of chotu aka Kalam in 2011’s critically acclaimed film ‘I am Kalam’, is one of the top contenders in this list of highest-paid child actors in Bollywood. His acting in the film was highly appreciated and for this, he was rewarded with a good amount. Apparently, he shot the film over the span of 21 days and he received 1 Lakh for the same.
Salman Khan‘s film ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo‘ was the highest grosser film of the year 2015 and it broke several records at the box-office. This popularity of the film brought good exposure for the little actors. Darsheel Kumar who portrayed the younger version of Neil Nitin Mukesh in the film bagged another film with Varun Dhawan and John Abraham post-PRDP. He will be seen in ‘Dishoom’ and reportedly he is being paid approximately 30,000 rupees per day for his appearance. A big sum, indeed!
Sara Arjun, who portrayed the role of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s daughter in the film ‘Jazbaa’, is said to be a born star. Reports suggest that she had charged a fat amount for her appearance and has starry demands too. She requires a personal vanity van and is very particular with her work hours.
Salman Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘ was the best film of the year 2015 and we just could not take our eyes off Salman’s little companion Harshaali Malhotra. The beautiful angel added a charm to the film and for this, she was given a fat paycheck. Reportedly, she banked a few lakhs not exceeding 10 Lakh for her role of ‘Munni.’
Divya Chalwad who recently appeared in John Abraham’s action-packed film was lucky enough to gain accolades and a whopping amount for her performance in the film. She was paid approximately 25,000 per shoot which of course lasted for more than a month. The sum is indeed difficult to be calculated.
