Kartik Aaryan is on cloud nine right now since his film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is doing like wonders at the box office. He’s already a rising Bollywood star, and his forthcoming films look good as well. Today, we’ll look at a fun fact about his fees for BB 2 and compare them to the film’s prequel.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa was released in 2007 for the uninitiated. Priyadarshan, a master of humour films, directed it. It had Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan in the key roles, with a strong supporting cast. Unlike BB 2, it was more in the realm of a psychological thriller with logical rationale. It was a major box office hit when it was released 14 years ago.
According to reports, the Akshay Kumar starrer cost 32 crores to make. Earlier, there was no such thing as the “100 crore fad” back then, thus the budget of 32 crores was still plenty. Kartik Aaryan is believed to have charged 15 crores for his salary in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. When compared to the budget for the prequel, it’s almost half as much.
According to sources, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 cost 65 crores to produce, including actor pay, production costs, and promotions.
