Hrithik Roshan takes a giant leap to become highest paid actor
Move aside Khan boys Shahrukh, Salman, Saif and even Amitabh Bachchan, the new rising star of the future is none other than our very own superhero Krrish, Hrithik Roshan. According to sources actor Hrithik Roshan has signed a three film contract with Adlabs for a phenomenal Rs 12 crore per film sending him straight to being the highest paid actor in bollywood. The deal between Hrithik and Adlabs is currently being kept under wraps but will soon be announced creating ripples in the film industry.
Hrithik Roshan who began his career in 2000 with Kaho Na Pyar Hai is an extremely hardworking actor who has delivered hits like Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish. However in an extremely short span of time in the Hindi film industry he has already moved to the top position. In fact according to sources the actor has signed a three film contract for a package of Rs 35 crore. As another major bonus which is also part of the deal a source reveals “Not only has Hrithik been signed for this unheard of amount by Adlabs but he also been given the freedom to pick and choose the nature and genre of the projects he wants to do. He can choose the director he wants, as well as the script, co-stars and even the rest of the unit and crew for each set up. In short Hrithik is in complete creative control of what he chooses to do and with whom.”
The entire package seems like a dream deal for any actor and will definitely bring about major changes in the workings of the film industry. Other top actors are also bound to make more demands and will want more profits. This will put more strain on producers of medium budget flicks as they may find it difficult to meet the phenomenal star prices. As part of the deal, the entire payment will be made to Hrithik by cheque also changing the functioning of the film industry making it more corporitised. Moreover the deal has been stretched out over a time frame of three years leaving the actor free to decide when he will do what film. The deal sounds almost like an unbelievable package and will definitely shake up the industry and hence it is still being hushed. But when Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan was contacted for confirmation of the deal between Adlabs and Hrithik he neither confirmed nor denied the development stating “Negotiations are on.” Pooja Shetty, director of Adlabs Films Ltd also said “An official announcement still needs to be made.”
Well Hrithik is bound to be the envy of his co-stars in bollywood and will also have to work even harder to prove himself in his forthcoming films like Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar opposite Aishwarya Rai. Well hopefully the news of the mega deal making Hrithik ‘King Roshan’ will soon be announced.
