‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ must have crossed the magic number of Rs.1,000 crore in worldwide collections today but it is still the biggest ever project that ran for five years at a stretch.
The payments made for Bahubali and Bahubali 2 is way above the first part, for obvious reasons of its grandeur and profitability over the nation’s most sought-after question of “Why Kattappa Killed Bahubali?” Kattappa said he did so at the behest of director SS Rajamouli. But did he get good amount for it. No, in fact, he was paid the least among all the key actors’ paychecks received at the end of the movie.
Here is the list of unconfirmed payment made to the key actors of the movie, according to DNA:
- Amrendra Bahubali/Prabhas Rs.25 crore
- Bhallaladeva/Rana Daggubatti Rs.15 crore
- Devasena/Anushka Shetty Rs.5 crore
- Avantika/Tamannah Rs.5 crore
5. Sivagami/Ramya Krishnan Rs.2.5 crore
- Kattappa/Sathya Raj has Rs.2 crore
- Director SS Rajamouli Rs.28 crore+one third of profits.
‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ must have crossed the magic number of Rs.1,000 crore in worldwide collections today but the five-year-old project is unprecedented in Indian film history. “Na bhooto Na Bhavishyat” is apt to describe this film’s popularity and success.
Wrapping up the London leg of promotion, Rajamouli today tweeted: “With this last leg of promotion in London my job with Baahubali film series is completely over. A big hug and thanks to everyone.” Apparently, the director is gearing to work with the most sought-after Telugu star Mahesh Babu in his next project.
