How much Prabhas, Prithviraj Sukumaran & others charged for Prashanth Neel’s actioner?

Prashanth Neel’s latest outing Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire has taken a monstrous opening at the box office as it earned Rs 175 crore on its opening day globally. The film has garnered praise for its scale, Prashanth Neel’s story-telling and impeccable performances of the cast. Netizens called Salaar ‘most violent film of the year’ clinching the title from Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Animal Kapoor, Triptii Dimri and Bobby Deol starrer Animal.

While the budget of Salaar is expected to be between Rs 300-400 crore, the majority of the chunk has been taken by the cast, especially the lead actor Prabhas. As per the News 18 report, the Baahubali star has taken Rs 100 crore as his remuneration. On the other hand, Jagapathi Babu and Prithviraj Sukumaran took Rs 4 crore each for portraying their characters. Lead actress Shruti Haasan charged Rs 8 crore for playing Aadhya while writer-director Prashanth Neel took Rs 50 crore as his fee.

Talking about the review, Firstpost gave the film 3.5 stars and wrote, “Director Prashanth Neel once again comes up with a riveting tale, which has all the elements of a commercial entertainer. Right from celebrating heroism to the ruggedness of characters, larger-than-life storytelling with layers of traits like betrayal, loyalty and leadership ultimately results in a compelling narrative. The editing is crisp and sharp with proper placements of emotional depth, which leaves the audience with a daunting experience. However, the film gives you dejavu of the KGF franchise due to its backdrop and rawness among villains. In some scenes, it will remind you of Baahubali because of Prabhas’ persona. The setting of sequences has Game Of Thrones vibe, which adds extra appeal to its narrative.”
