According to Sunny Deol, the producer has the final say over an actor’s pay, and he does not want to put a burden on them.
Sunny Deol has reclaimed his celebrity and audience charm ever since his most recent movie, Gadar 2, opened to a thunderous reception. In recent weeks, reports have even claimed that Sunny is now asking for 50 crore for every film as his compensation. Currently, the actor has addressed the rumors in an interview with India TV.
Does Sunny Deol demand 50 crore for each movie?
When asked if he had been seeking 50 crore for a movie, Sunny responded, “Look, it’s the producer who will decide how much to pay depending on how much he earns.” The actor responded, “He (producer) will decide how much he can pay,” in response to the question of whether a star with a 500 crore box office haul can want 50 crore. I won’t promise to do something or not. This is not how I operate. I prefer working on initiatives where I won’t be a burden.
Gadar 2’s price tag with Sunny Deol
When Gadar 2 started to approach 500 crores at the box office, a number of rumors concerning the movie’s budget and lead actor’s salary began to circulate online. According to the reports, even if the movie may be selling a lot of tickets, it did not turn a profit due to the significant upfront costs. Sunny Deol ‘compromised’ on his compensation for the movie, according to director Anil Sharma, who disproved all the rumors last month and told Lehren Retro. He went on to explain that they didn’t pay the actor a hefty sum since they needed the money to finish production.
