The fact that Prabhas allegedly made a hiking demand after Radhe Shyam’s box office disaster and the even more shocking thing was makers of of Adipurush accepted to pay the significant amount to the lead. One of the most eagerly awaited upcoming Indian movies, Adipurush, starring Prabhas, is being touted as a pan-India film with a high budget, set in Hindu folklore, and is helmed by Om Raut who also directed Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, which heightens the anticipation. Other than Prabhas the movie has the presence of, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan. And now if reports and speculations are to be beleived Prabha’s demand in hyping of fees is creating a lot of problems for the makers of Adipurush.
Prabhas increases his demand for Adipurush’s fee, which results in a 25% budget increase. According to a dependable source in the industry, Prabhas reportedly requested that the Adipurush film’s producers to hike up his pay to 120 crore. Reports estimates and suggests that his payment for the movie at the beginning was 90 to 100 crores. And the sudden increement in Prabhas’s fees has left the producers in a difficult situation because, on the one hand, granting Prabhas’ request would increase the budget by almost 25%, but, on the other hand, with a large portion of the film remaining to be shot, doing so might cause unneeded stress on the set. Even more startling is the actor’s request despite Radhe Shyam’s poor box office performance.
Prabhas’s fans already have started trending ‘Wake Up Team Adipurush’ as they are undeniably upset as the project was announced 2 years back and since then there has been little news about the project. This is quiet unfavourable from the viewers side. Well now we need to see whether the demand that Prabhas has kept will be the further reason for the delay of the film or not.
