Akshay Kumar is one of the star A-listers in the Bollywood industry. He is not in everyone’s ability to cast them for a movie because his fees are too high. He charges crores of fees for a movie. However, Akshay Kumar has also seen those days when he only earned a few thousand rupees instead of working in movies. Now Akshay Kumar has revealed the first salary of him, knowing that he too will surprise you.
During the interview with Aaj Tak News Channel, Akshay Kumar has revealed his first salary. He said that he had received a fee of Rs 50,000 for the film Deedar, which was produced by Pramod Chakraborty. Although ‘Saugandh’ was released earlier, Akshay got the first shot at it with ‘Deedar’. Akshay Kumar also said that he got Rs 75 lakhs for the movie Saugandh.
Akshay Kumar said that he always wanted to earn Rs 10 crore but in the first 10 years of his career, he could only earn Rs 18 to 20 lakh. Akshay Kumar said: ‘It took me 12 years to earn 10 crores. After earning 10 crores, he thought that now he should earn more money. After this, he worked hard and worked and earned Rs 100 crore. I believe that one must continue advancing and continue working’.
Speaking of the employment front, Akshay Kumar’s movie Selfie was released recently, and it did nothing special at the box office. The first day collection of ‘Selfie’ has been only Rs 3.55 crore. On the second day, he earned Rs 3.80 crore. In this way, the total collection of Selfie is 6.35 crores.
Let’s say last year, Akshay Kumar’s movies like ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’, ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, ‘Ram Setu’ were released one after another and they were all heavily defeated at the box office.
