This will be the first time when we will see Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi sharing the screen space. Both the actors are all set to be seen in Raj and DK’s upcoming show on Amazon Prime Video. This will be the digital debut for Shahid. And if reports are to be believed then this is an action entertainer.
Now, we got to know about the fees that have been paid to the actors and the news is that Sethupathi will be paid more than the Kabir Singh actor for this web show.
A source close to the development revealed, “Owing to the success of The Family Man, the company believed in the filmmaker duo and when they brought this show to the table and suggested a huge budget because of the two stars they were planning to get and Amazon agreed. This would be Shahid’s big debut and Vijay’s first web show as well. Plus, they loved the casting coup.”
The informer adds, “Shahid asked for a hefty Rs. 40 crores plus for the whole season and his contract also mentions a hike in his remuneration if the show gets renewed for another season. The plan is to make it into three seasons as of now. Vijay, on the other hand, has not put a clause like that but straight away asked for a sum of around Rs. 55 crores. Both of them have roles that are on equal footing but Vijay is undoubtedly a mega star from South and the makers agreed on the deal. He is getting a much bigger sum compared to Shahid but unlike Shahid, his contract has no mention of any hike for the second season.”
