John Abraham paid 15 crores for ‘Welcome’ sequel
Bollywood hunk John Abraham excels in every department of acting. Slowly and steadily, he is climbing the ladder of success. He was exceptional on ramp and now that he has come into acting and film production, he is going an excellent job. With success, his price tag is also increasing. It is heard that John has been paid Rs 15 crore for ‘Welcome’ sequel.
John Abraham has stepped into Akshay Kumar’s shoes in ‘Welcome’ sequel and Anees Bazmee has reportedly roped him for Rs 25 crores. Considering John’s growing popularity in yet to be released film ‘Shootout At Wadala’, his price tag increased. From the original, Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar will again star in the sequel and the makers are looking for a replacement for late actor Firoz Khan. Anees will be helming the project.
“Nadiadwala wanted to make the sequel of his film since quite some time now. However when talks with Akshay Kumar fizzled out, Firoz was looking for another option. Anees and Firoz decided to cast John and they have apparently paid him Rs 15 crore for the film. Given that John’s upcoming film with Sanjay Gupta is being much talked about, it was but obvious that the actor would be commanding a price like this,” the tabloid reported.
While Nadiadwala refuses to divulge further details, he said, “No, nothing like that! Also, 'Welcome Back' will be a complete family entertainer.”
