South Superstar Prabhas’s next with Nag Ashwin; the yet-to-be-titled sci-fi film holds pan-India appeal already.
Because the star will also be sharing screen space with Bollywood’s powerhouse performers; Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan!
This futuristic action thriller will reportedly be made on a lavish 300-crore budget in four languages: Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. And Senior Bachchan’s part is not going to be a mere cameo but a proper, full-length role.
Now, naturally, fans are curious as to what the legendary veteran actor is charging for this highly anticipated film. And the answer is a whopping amount – 21 crores!
A source revealed to Bollywood Hungama, “Amitabh Bachchan often charges a premium rate to work down south, and he has continued this trend with Nag Ashwin’s next too. His character is more of the one that’s central to the narrative involving lots of action, and given the magnitude of the film and impact of his role, Big B charged Rs. 21 crore to be a part of the film.”
Nag Ashwin’s film will reportedly go on floors next year and is gearing up for a 2023 release. Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan will next be seen in Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor and MayDay with Ajay Devgn.
