‘RRR’: Alia Bhatt And Ajay Devgn’s Massive Paychecks From The SS Rajamouli Directorial Will Leave You Stunned



One of the most-awaited projects of 2022, SS Rajamouli’s period-drama ‘RRR’ was all set to release in cinema halls on January 7, but the surge in Covid cases in the past few weeks forced the government to take some strict actions which resulted in cinema halls closing doors once again in many states. While the makers have postponed the project indefinitely, a Bollywood Hungama report hinting Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn’s massive paychecks has grabbed everyone’s attention.

According to the report, Alia Bhatt, who makes her Telugu debut with the Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer, has reportedly earned nearly Rs 9 crores for her less than twenty-minute appearance in the movie. Apart from Alia, even Ajay Devgn has taken home a massive paycheck of Rs 35 crores for his week’s work. “Alia Bhatt has been paid what she normally charges other producers in Mumbai. Although she has less than twenty minutes of playing-time she is the official leading lady of RRR and has been paid close to Rs. 9 crores for her brief role,” a source close to the project was quoted in the report.

Meanwhile, talking about Alia and Ajay’s characters in ‘RRR’, SS Rajamouli in a recent interview had said, “They are playing cameos in the film, I am not going to cheat the audience about it. In terms of importance, they are equally and sometimes they are more important than the heroes themselves.”

On the other hand, SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has recently run into some legal trouble as an Andhra Pradesh student filed a PIL in the High Court, claiming that the makers were distorting historical facts with the movie. While the makers are yet to respond to the claim, fans are eagerly waiting to watch Ram Charan and Jr NTR in action soon.
