Gone are those days where heroes used to take a paycheck and weren’t much bothered about the film’s success at the box office.With changing times, and skyrocketing budgets, the heroes too have changed their mindset.
These days, it’s all about building the brand image and amassing a huge following on social media.
Telugu star heroes, who are seen as demigods by their fans, come with a pre-established fan base, courtesy of the Family Names they carry.
These star heroes charge a fat paycheck, and a percentage of the profits too.On the other hand, some heroes wish to work under a particular director’s direction and even go to the extent of not even taking remuneration.
Bollywood star hero Ajay Devgn exactly belongs to that class and has once again proven that he is a heart of gold.With Ajay Devgn role confirmed in Rajamouli’s #RRR, rumours emerged that the star hero was being paid close to Rs 25 crores for a 25-minute extended cameo.
It turns out that these rumours are utter rubbish.
Sources close to #RRR production department confirmed that Ajay Devgn isn’t even taking a penny as remuneration.
‘He expressed his wish to work under Rajamouli’s direction.That is the reason he is on-board.He did not even charge a penny’, said the source.That is what a true actor is all about.
