Amazon Prime has proudly announced a superstar in their midst.Akshay Kumar has agreed to be the first Bollywood A-lister to hop on to the digital bandwagon.
Apparently his son Aarav had a big hand in Akshay’s decision.Aarav persuaded his dad to go digital.
The zeroes on the cheque also helped. Apparently Akshay is being paid a staggering 90 crore rupees to feature in the web series. Though no one from the production team is willing to confirm that figure, a source close to the project admitted on condition of anonymity that Akshay’s fee was “in the vicinity of 90 crore rupees, if not more.”
“To begin with , Akshay was not keen to do a digital series. Amazon pursued him relentlessly. They hope to get in more Bollywood superstars,” says the source.
I hear Salman Khan is also on the verge of signing up with Amazon.
