The actor with his back to back blockbusters starting with Kesari to year ender Good Newwz, has established a Rs 700-crore box office club in Bollywood in 2019. Box office success comes at a price for producers who are looking forward to rope in the actor for their projects as reports suggest he has hiked his fees to an amout that is not the net worth of many small scale movies i.e. a whopping Rs 120 crore.

The film will be directed by Aanand L Rai of Tanu Weds Manu and Zero fame and is expected to star Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush in prominent roles, as per reports. A report in Bollywood Hungama quoted a source close to the development as saying, “Akshay Kumar is known to charge upfront fees and in today's time, his name attracts the audience not just in the cinema hall but also gets lucrative offers from digital and satellite networks. Akshay and his team believe that the actor deserves 100 crore plus as acting fees for the goodwill that he brings to the project.


The source also said that the film will go on the floors in the second half of 2020. Dhanush earlier confirming his collaboration with Rai said, "I'll be teaming up with Aanand L Rai some time. I will be doing a Hindi film, it will be announced soon." This will be the first project for Akshay, Sara and Rai together. Dhanush worked with Rai in Ranjhaana also starring Sonam Kapoor.

Akshay is the only actor in Bollywood to have delivered five consecutive films that crossed the Rs 150 crore mark at the box office. His latest release Good Newwz has crossed the Rs 200 crore mark at domestic box office. It revolves around an IVF goof up and stars Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani.
