Hrithik Roshan hikes his price to Rs 50 crore

Bollywood Greek God Hrithik Roshan hikes his price for his next movie, ‘Mohenjo Daro’, a period drama. After ‘Jodha Akbar’, Hrithik is again teaming up with Ashutosh Gowarikar and according to the latest report; he has hiked his price to Rs 50 crore.

If the report is true then Hrithik would become the highest paid actor in Bollywood. ‘Mohenjo Daro’ is a mammoth project and the makers are yet to decide in which studio the film will be shot.

Hrithik will not take the share of the profit but will be paid a hefty amount of Rs 50 crore.

According to a source close to the development, the director is in advanced talks with a leading studio. "The modalities are being worked out and the studio will come on board in the next 15 days. Hrithik's first-of-its-kind pay structure has been taken into account," says the source. Trade analyst Amod Mehra said, "This will make Hrithik the highest paid actor in the country and Mohenjo Daro the most expensive film."

Exhibitor Manoj Desai won't predict the fate of ‘Mohenjo Daro’ but is confident that Hrithik continues to be a crowd puller. "He was brilliant in Ashutosh's period drama Jodhaa Akbar and Mohenjo Daro is also a period drama."
