With the phenomenal collections of his last release 'Dangal', Aamir Khan has indeed become one of the most sought after actor in Bollywood. Indeed, Mr Perfectionist is rolling high on its success, which has reportedly led to striking rise in the fees for his upcoming movie 'Thugs Of Hindostan' which happens to be a Aditya Chopra production.
According to the media reports, Aamir has demanded a major portion of the profits the movie will earn post release. "Aamir will pocket almost 70 per cent of the profits while Adi will keep the remaining percentage. Fact is, after Dangal made Rs 1000 crore, now few people question Aamir on his deals. If TOH makes that amount of money, Adi (Aditya Chopra) will get almost Rs 300 crore which is much more than any of his own home productions," a sourcer reportedly told a web portal.

Indeed, it is the highest amount of profits ever demanded by an actor for a movie.
If the media reports are to be believed, the 'PK' actor had charged a fee of Rs 35 crore and also entered into a 33 per cent partnership of Dangal's revenue.
Also starring Amitabh Bachhcan, 'Thugs Of Hindostan' happens to be Aamir Khan's first collaboration with the megastar. Helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the movie also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh in key roles. The movie is expected to hit the floors this month and is reported to release in 2018.
