Rumor has it that Prabhas has raised his price for his upcoming Adipurush. The movie is one of the most anticipated movies of the year starring the OG pan-Indian superstar alongside Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan. While fans await the first glimpse of the film, a new report claims the Telugu actor is charging a bomb for his role.
If we are to believe the report from BollywoodLife, Prabhas is reportedly asking the makers to pay Rs 120 crore for his role in the film. The actor is said to have previously mentioned a fee of Rs 90-100 crore. “What this has now done has apparently put the producers in a difficult position, because on the one hand, by giving in to Prabhas’s demand, the budget has increased by about 25%, and on the other hand, by a to run a significant portion of the film, not giving in to his demand could cause unwanted friction on the sets,” the report stated.
Prabhas has yet to respond to claims. For the inexperienced, Adipurush is an adaptation of the Indian mythological saga Ramayana. The film is directed by Om Raut. Adipurush was supposed to come out in August, but the film pushed the release date for Aamir Khan to release his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha.
“We would like to thank Bhushan Kumar, T Series, Om Raut and the entire team at Adipurush from the bottom of our hearts. We would like to thank them for their helpfulness and understanding, and for pushing the release date of their highly anticipated, Adipurush,” team Laal Singh Chaddha was quoted as saying by Bollywood Hungama. So August 11 has been sealed for Laal Singh Chaddha while Adipurush has locked January 12, 2023 as the release date.
Meanwhile, Prabhas is also filming Project K with Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan in Hyderabad.
