Top Five Highest Paid Bollywood Actors India 2012
Akshay, nick-named Akki sits in the top position with his constant hits such as Hera Pheri, Welcome and Singh is king, overtaking King Khan and other muscle-men of Bollywood. This king of mindless comedies has also turned out to be the king of Bollywood crorepatis, who gets paid an amount of 15 crore for one single movie. The actor has a magic in him and has proved that any kind of character is safe in his hands, whether it is comedy, action or romance and that is one of the main reasons why producers rush to him with crores in their hands.
One cannot expect Aamir to do movies once in five or six months; this Bollywood perfectionist does one movie in a year, but makes sure that it is a blockbuster. Be it Ghajini or 3 Idiots, Aamir has given his best and producers feel there is nothing wrong in paying him around 13-14 crores for 1 movie. Ghajini and 3 Idiots broke all the records and were recognized as the highest-grossing bollywood movies of all time, which once again confirmed Mr. Perfectionist’s position as one of the richest men in the Bollywood world.
3.Shah Rukh Khan
Most of us will be surprised to see Bollywood Baadshah in the third position, a name which is expected to be on the top. With a shortage of few crores, he could make it to the third place only, charging an amount of 12 crores per movie. However, King Khan is not bothered being chucked down as he still continues to be one of the most wealthy actor, with 34 brand endorsements worth Rs 238 crore, and the earnings from his Red Chillies Entertainment production house and IPL Cricket Team ;not to forget the properties he own in India and abroad.
With an approximate of 10 crore for 1 movie, green-eyed romantic hero of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan found himself a place among the highest paid bollywood actors. He rose to this present position quite rapidly with a bunch of action thrillers and romantic movies such as Jodha Akbar, Krrish and Guzaarish and presently B-town is busy gossiping about his three film deal with Adlabs, which is rumoured to be worth an amount of 30 crores. Hrithik, who has been capturing the heart of girls with his mind-blowing performances since ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai’, is now producer’s favourite with his recent hit, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.
Our controversial hero, Sallu Bhai comes fifth in the list who rakes in big money for his movies, getting an average pay of about 8-10 crores per movie .He may be the bad boy who finds controversies and problems inseparable from his life, but when it comes to his pay package, he is left nowhere behind. Salman has a miracle of turning his movies into blockbusters which can be proved taking the case of just one film, Dabaang and he is also the one and only hero in Bollywood, who has huge female fans following him.
