Mumbai: Director Anurag Kashyap has questioned the high movie fees being paid to Bollywood superstars, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, whose names got mentioned in the Forbes list.

SRK and Khiladi Kumar are at 8th and 10th spot respectively in World’s highest paid actors list of 2016 in Forbes.

What Anurag Kashyap said?

  • We had four Bollywood actors (Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan) in the Forbes highest paid actors list while the rest were Hollywood actors.
  • The films starring Hollywood actors named in the Forbes list earn huge sums (millions and billions) while the maximum of the Box Office collection of an Indian movie has been 300 crore.
  • One can notice a huge disparity if they see the ratio on the list, business of the film vs income of the actor.
  • I am not blaming the actors for this, all the blame should be passed on to the producers as they are ready to pay the actor such high amounts.

It may be mentioned that Kashyap has recently played a role in Sonakshi Sinha co-starrer ‘Akira’ and has got critical acclaim for the same.
