Young Rebel Star Prabhas is going to team up with Mahanati director Nag Ashwin for a science fiction film. The project got announced a couple of months back. Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is playing the female lead in it. If the latest buzz is anything to go by, Prabhas is taking a remuneration of Rs. 70 crores for this film.
This is a whopping remuneration that is on par with the remunerations of Bollywood actors like Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. After the success of Baahubali, Prabhas has become a pan-India star. His stardom has crossed all the boundaries and people wait with bated breath for his new releases. Considering such a huge stardom, there is no surprise in him taking such a huge remuneration. Apparently, Prabhas will also take a share of the profits after the release of the film. On the flip side, Deepika Padukone is going to receive a paycheck of Rs. 18 crores for this project. Ashwini Dutt is bankrolling the film under the banner Vyjayanti Movies. The shooting of this film will go on the floors next year.
Currently, Prabhas is acting in the film Radhe Shyam. It is being directed by Radha Krishna Kumar of Jil fame. Pooja Hegde is playing the female lead in it. The shooting is in the final stages. The makers are planning to release it in early 2021. UV Creations and Gopi Krishna films are jointly bankrolling this project.
