Vijay Sethupathi Expects Rs 21 Crore To Join Shah Rukh Khan And Atlee's Jawan

One of the most eagerly anticipated Indian movies of 2022 is the Shah Rukh Khan-starring Atlee movie, Jawan. Nayanthara plays the female lead, and Vijay Sethupathi plays the villain. This action-packed comedy is currently being filmed in Chennai, and Sanya Malhotra and Sunil Grover both have significant roles. Additionally, information revealing that Vijay Sethupathi was paid Rs 21 crore to join this Pan India project just came out.

 
This is the highest fee Sethupathi has ever charged for a feature film, and the rise follows the overwhelmingly positive response to his performance in Vikram. He had been in negotiations for Jawan for some time, but the paperwork was only finalized after Vikram's resounding victory. According to a source familiar with the situation, the actor's remuneration for Jawan has increased from Rs 15 crore to Rs 21 crore. The source further stated that the actor will play a dangerous character in the Atlee-directed film. He had to drop out of two movies in order to work on this one. But because the character is so strong, he didn't mind abandoning other projects. Vijay was really ecstatic about his new role, the insider continued about Atlee's work.
 
We have heard tales over the years about Shah Rukh Khan being one of the most generous producers in Indian cinema. While it's customary to haggle over actors' fees, SRK managed to sign Vijay Sethupathi without engaging in any additional negotiations. "Shah Rukh Khan is a person who values talent and believes that every performer merits a substantial salary. Vijay is one of India's most renowned performers, and he didn't want to put anyone in an unpleasant situation by asking for a discount. He also mentioned Vijay's kindness in agreeing to perform the movie and in rearranging his plans with one of his friends, the source said.
 
Deepika Padukone, meanwhile, just finished filming for her role in Jawan. The actress reportedly shot some dialogue scenes as well as a Farah Khan-choreographed song. Shah Rukh Khan plays two roles in the movie, and Deepika is rumored to play the older characters' wives.
