Actor Ayushmann Khurrana is in discussions these days. Recently the trailer of his new film ‘Doctor G’ has been released. The audience is loving it and waiting for the release of Ayushmann’s film. However, Ayushmann’s last two releases were not successful. Due to the failure of two films one after the other, it is being said that the actor’s fees have come down drastically. Before the arrival of the Kovid-19 epidemic, many successful films of Ayushmann had brought this actor’s fee up to Rs 25 crore.
A news portal has reported in its report that after the low performance of films like Anek and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Ayushmann’s acting fee has come down from Rs 25 crore to Rs 15 crore. Actually, the producer of Ayushmann’s upcoming film requested the actor that he can support him in this difficult time by reducing his acting fees. After this Ayushman reduced the fee to Rs 15 crore. Ayushman’s new market value is now Rs 15 crore.
The low performance of a few films does not mean that Ayushmann does not have offers from the producers. As per reports, the actor has offers from several producers, but Ayushmann is waiting for the better performance of his upcoming film ‘Doctor Ji’. He wants to see how the film performs at the ticket window. It is said that till the end of this year, she is busy in ‘Dream Girl 2’. A source close to Ayushmann has said that Ayushmann is hopeful that the upcoming release will bring him back in the race.
Ayushmann is not the only one to cut fees. Akshay Kumar who used to charge up to Rs 144 crores for a film, his fee has gone up to 72 crores. John Abraham, Shahid Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao have also slashed their fees by half. While the actors have cut the fees, on the other hand the filmmakers are also making preparations to show the film to the audience on cheap tickets. This trend is being seen after National Cinema Day. Director Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film PS1 is set to be shown nationwide for Rs 100.
