Guess How Much Director SS Rajamouli and Prabhas Earned From the Blockbuster Baahubali!
Both Prabhas and Rajamouli have entered into the Forbes list as well!
With earnings over Rs. 600 crores at the box office, Baahubali-The Beginning has created history for the South-Indian film industry!
The film which released this June, is a mythological epic which embraced special effects on a grand scale depicting a fairy-tale like landscape and awe-inspiring sets. An article in Bollywood Life reported that director SS Rajamouli and lead actor Prabhas even made it to the 2015 Forbes India Celebrity 100 list, with each taking home a whopping fee!.
While there has been much speculation over how much director SS Rajamouli and lead actor Prabhas were paid for the film, the Forbes list revealed that Prabhas ranked 77th on the list with earnings of Rs 24 crore while Rajamouli ranked 72nd with Rs 26 crore. It’s estimated that minus the Rs 4 crore he earned for a Mahindra ad, Prabhas probably earned Rs 20 crore for the film, as per the article.
Not surprising there, that the actor allegedly kept himself free for two years for the film, not taking on any new projects! Rajamouli is currently shooting the sequel Baahubali: The Conclusion Shoot. The film is likely to release in end of 2016 or early 2017. Prabhas will once again be in the lead.
