last year :-
***Kindly provide a link credit to this page if you copy that detailed
analysis below (we are sorry to write this but it happend in past
that below listed original analysis was copied
by many people without mentioning this website)***
In Indian film industry, there is no public record for official figures
of transactions but a Star's Market Value can be established on
Movie successes and endorsement standings.
RUKH KHAN was on his Peak after back to back superhits 'kabhi haan kabhi naa', 'raju ban gaya gentleman, 'Darr', Baazigar' and then in the same row back to back BLOCKBUSTERS succeses like 'Dilwale dulhania le jaayenge', 'karan-Arjun' 'DDLJ', 'Dil to
Pagal hai' and 'Kuchh Kuchh hota hai' ( All this Before arrival of Hrithik Roshan,
AT that time Salman
Khan and Aamir
Khan were professionally considered below SRK) media reports
started to come that Shah Rukh has now started to take 2-3 crores
Here is the 1996 video where first ever crore rupees per film issue was openly discussed with SRK at his peak stardom time in 1996 :-
This was shocking for Indian Public because in early Nineties
people believed that overall budget of a good movie is around 3-5
crore max. But by the end of 2000 things were changed and Overseas
Markets were giving Unimaginable profits. Shah Rukh Khan was hugely
popular in Overseas markets (Specially US, Canada and UK) and his
films were back to back smash hits there making him worth of few
crores for a film. Few years Later only AKSHAY
KUMAR would emerge as a top selling brand in International Markets...
Then came Phenomenon HRITHIK ROSHAN whose first movie 'Kaho na Pyaar Hai' was a smash hit in Indian and International markets, followed by Kabhie Khushi Kahie Gham by NRI Favorite Karan Johar and the results were same.... By the start of this decade, It was No secret that indeed Indian film industry film actors are now earning in crores... Indian film industry was never same again after that and Top heroines also entered the 1 crore league per film....
AKSHAY KUMAR joined the Crore Race soon and he came with a new strategy. Akshay Kumar was among the first to take overseas rights of the movie as his pre-condition of signing. Markets were high and more huge money was pouring into the business. Even actors' Part Time work (Advertising and Product Endorsement) was paying them more than what they used to get per film just a few years back!
Then Another Revolution came in the form of TV Anchoring by noted Indian film industry actors. AMITABH BACHCHAN set the TRPs high with his prime time star plus tv show 'Koun Banega Crorepati' and no matter how many people became crorepati, It was sure that Amitabh definitely became a millionaire with this show and was getting several crores for his one season of the show...Small screen had also become Part of the Game now...
AAMIR KHAN raised many eyebrows in 2006 when it was leaked in media that the actor has returned 2 crore rupees to Yash Raj Films because their Movie 'Fanaa' was not released in Gujarat state. This made everyone wonder if Aamir returned 2 crore for film's no show in Gujarat then how many crores he must have got for the movie?
Today if we try to list the most expensive Indian film industry celebrity
actor or Top paid Indian film industry celebrity actor, we not only think about
what they are charging their producers per movie. Because today
Indian film industry celebrities are earning much more in Brand endorsements
and TV Shows. SALMAN
KHAN said to have been paid 90 crores for the first season of
his popular TV Show 'Dus Ka Dum'. And most recently in Bigg Boss
Season 3 Amitabh clicked the deal in Many crores salary.
Considering all these factors in Mind (TV Show earnings,
Brand endorsements, Movies overseas rights etc.) We came up with
the above list of Top paid, highest paid, highest earning and most
expensive and richest Indian film industry Actors : -
