Akshay Kumar is one of the few Bollywood actors who have started shooting during the lockdown. Not only that, but he has also agreed to shoot abroad as well.
Akshay will soon start shooting for ‘Atrangi Rey’ starring Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. Akshay has a special role in this movie which he will wrap up shooting in 14days. Filmmaker Anand L Rai first approached Hrithik Roshan, but he refused, and then Akshay was offered the role. Akshay accepted it out of respect for the filmmaker, a source quoted to Pinkvilla.
It has been reported that Akshay will be paid a hefty amount for a 14days shoot. Akshay’s lucky number is 9, so whatever he charges is the total sum of 9. It has been revealed that he’ll be charging Rs.27Crores for a 14days shoot. Usually, he charges Rs.1Crore for one day shoot but this is much more than that for 14days.
Akshay will be completing a shoot of his another film before starting for Atrangi Rey.
