Entertainment Desk: 2023 is a different year for South Indian superstar Rajinikanth. After consecutive years of flops, the latest movie ‘Zillar’ has seen success at good numbers. Immediately after this, the record fee is sitting. No news.
Currently, Rajini has two big projects in hand. One of these is being directed by Lokesh Kangraj, which is currently titled ‘Thalaivar 171’.
After ‘2.0’ which released in 2018, none of Rajinikanth’s movies did well. This list includes big budget constructions like peta, darbar or anatta. It was thought that the actor will not be able to master the old form. But Nelson directed ‘Zeller’ changed all calculations. It is now the second highest grossing movie in the Kollywood industry worldwide.
Since then, Rajinikanth’s fans have renewed hope. Working with Lokesh, one of the most stylish directors of the time, has increased the heat. The director’s latest movie ‘Leo’ has collected Rs 500 crore worldwide in the past few weeks. As a result, Rajinikanth’s entry into his cinematic universe is considered very profitable.
Even before this, Rajinikanth has beaten Bollywood stars in terms of remuneration. This time for ‘Thalaivar 171’ this number is going to reach between 260 to 280 rupees. It is said that before this figure was decided, the actor turned down the offer of regional rights.
If the rumor turns out to be true, Rajinikanth is going to become the highest paid actor in Asia. Earlier, he surpassed Jackie Chan in terms of remuneration.
‘Thalaivar 171’ and ‘Zillar’ are produced by the same company. Sun Pictures. Earlier, the producer gave Rajinikanth a BMW X7 and a dividend check after doing the blockbuster business of ‘Zillar’.
