Despite being a highly popular and successful actor in the film industry, Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly accepted a lower fee for his upcoming film, Pathaan. According to sources, the actor has agreed to a fee of 35-40 crore rupees for the film. The reason for this lower fee is that SRK has negotiated a profit-sharing deal for the project.
This model of profit-sharing is becoming increasingly common among high-profile actors, including those in the South Indian film industry.
Trade analysts predict that the film could open with 40 crores in India. The film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, and is directed by Siddharth Anand, who is known for his work on the film War. Pathaan is set to be released in theaters on January 25th.
We have to see if SRK scores a big hit at the box office.
