Akki to get 23 cr for OUATIM sequel


Despite a disastrous run at the box office courstesy duds like Chandni Chowk to China, Khatta Meetha, Tees Maar Khan, Patiala House and the tepid opening of  the April 8 release Thank You, Akshay Kumarwill still reportedly be paid 23 cr for the sequel of Milan Luthria's Once Upon a Time in Mumbai that is to go floors in December this year.

Akki is the highest paid Bollywood superstar. Salman Khan who is molten lava after Dabangg, the second highest B-town grosser of all time, is allegedly getting 21 crores for Atul Agnihotri's Bodyguard plus a share in the profits.

The other two Khans-Aamir and Shah Rukh have no fee earmarked against their names.  But they have a stake in the profits as equal to that of the producer.

For e.g. Aamir is said to have taken home approximately 55 cr for 3-Idiots until now, while SRK who produced his last major release My Name is Khan with Karan Johar is also said to have pocketed a tidy sum.  In the case of RA.One SRK will make a profit of at least 50 cr because he is the producer.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirms, ''Prices in Bollywood are good for the A-listers because it is a star who ultimately brings in an initial.''

As theatres multiply and more revenue streams open up, star prices also increase says Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO UTV Motion Pictures.

Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty now a formidable team after Golmaal-3 are likely to get 18 cr from Aasthavinayak Motion Pictures for Bol Bachchan going on floors this August.

Ajay says, ''Actually Rohit and I are co-producing the film with Aasthavinayak, so it is hard to mark out a price.''  But the grapevine insists it is around 18 cr.

Saif is reportedly getting something between 11-13 crores for Prakash Jha's Aarakshan that is coming on August 12 and  Shahid Kapoor is being paid around 9 cr for an upcoming film.

While Imran Khan is in the 7 cr price range for Mere Brother ki Dulhan and Short Term Shaadi; Ranbir Kapoor is getting paid twice that amount because he is a bigger star and more versatile.

 

Another reason why star prices remain high is because of the boom in satellite prices.

It is said that even the recently released small starcast film F.A.L.T.U. is likely to get 9 cr from satellite rights alone.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the highest paid heroine.  She got around 6 cr for the bi-lingual Robot says the grapevine.

Kareena Kapoor with 4 crores for Agent Vinod and Bodyguard is the current Bollywood diva.

And the princess of popcorn Katrina Kaif  has reportedly gotten Yashraj to bend their rules and pay her a handsome 3 cr for the July 22 release Mere Brother ki Dulhan.

AKSHAY KUMAR, WOOS LADIES' ONLY AUDIENCE AT LONDON SCREENING OF THANK YOU

Bollywood superstar, Akshay Kumar, wowed and wooed the ladies of London on Saturday 9th April, at an exclusive Ladies Only Screening of his latest film, 'Thank You', at Cineworld Feltham, followed by an energetic and lively Q&A with the charming screen icon. To celebrate the film's theatrical release the day before, the leading man of Indian cinema flew into London especially, to engage in an interaction with some of his female fans, who turned out in their masses for the exclusive event, rendering the lively auditorium a 'house full'. 

The audience was delighted and entertained by the romantic comedy, and to make their evening even more special and one to be cherished for life, Akshay Kumar stepped onto the stage following the screening, to discuss marriage, relationships and fidelity in his on-screen avatar from the film, 'Kishan', with the ladies in the audience.

Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Hari Om Entertainment Company, 'Thank You' is a film that lifts the lid on extramarital affairs. Filmed in Canada, maestro of comedy Akshay Kumar is at the helm of a powerhouse of screen talent that includes fellow stars Sonam Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan, Suneil Shetty, Celina Jaitley and Rimi Sen in a battle of the sexes which transforms matrimony to acrimony. After the staggering Box Office success of 'Singh is Kinng' and the earlier 'Welcome', the superstar Akshay Kumar has teamed up once more with much-loved comedy director Anees Bazmee.

'Thank You' is an honest film about dishonesty which will be loved by and identifiable to audiences, continuing with the signature style we have come to expect from the winning combination of Akshay Kumar and Anees Bazmee.

'Thank You' is on general release in cinemas across UK and worldwide by UTV Motion Pictures.

While Akshay was interacting with Mr. Harper and meeting and greeting the hoards of excited fans that had turned out for the event, Punjabi music blared in the background, adding to the action-packed atmosphere of the evening. The highlight however, was the Prime Minister's wife Laureen Harper's dance performance with Akshay to the popular peppy track 'Pyaar Do Pyaar Lo', an already iconic music number from the film which has been championing the music charts for weeks. In preparation, Laureen had viewed the song picturisation on YouTube, to memorise the steps.

I don't smoke or drink: Akshay Kumar


Akshay Kumar in an exclusive interview tells us about his love for television, being a teetotaler and the challenge of surviving in Bollywood... 

You are doing the next season of Khatron Ke Khiladi on television? 
Yes, I am. I think it is one of the most lucrative form of capturing people's attention. I love getting into people's drawing rooms. Everyone does not go to theatre for entertainment. 

Do you feel you are eating out on the telly actors' share of work on television? 
Not at all. With television becoming big, telly actors are now working in Bollywood and vice versa. 

Will you work with Farah Khan, after Tees Maar Khan being a flop? 
Of course, why not! She is a good director so nothing wrong with her. 

Your comment on the current crop of actors. Do you feel they would survive like Mr Amitabh Bachchan who is still getting good roles? 
The current crop of actors are good but they need to look for good scripts. A good script is something that we all are desperately looking for. Mr Bachchan deserves his success. With that kind of talent, it would be pity if roles were not written for him. 

What do you think is important to sustain in the big world of Bollywood? 
Looks are important. Being a teetotaler has definitely helped in my fitness levels and I don't see it as a major sacrifice. I don't smoke or drink and hit the gym regularly and run in the early mornings. I have sustained for 22 years in the industry, so guess that says something. (laughs). Success in Bollywood depends on how you help yourself!
