Ajay Devgn is currently enjoying the huge success of his recently released film ‘Tanhaji : The Unsung Warrior’. The ‘Singham’ actor is now geared up for his next ‘RRR’ with the ‘Bahubali’ filmmaker SS Rajamouli.
The film has already become a big name with its huge ensemble cast, which also includes Alia Bhatt together with other South superstars. Anything for this big project would be hefty but what will leave you stunned is Ajay’s remuneration for the project!
The upcoming blockbuster will feature Ajay Devgn in a pivotal cameo role with Jr NTR and Ram Charan Teja in the leading roles. However, the film’s producer DVV Danayya offered to pay Ajay the same as the leading men in the film but he refused.
Yes, you heard it right !
After refusing the equal fee to Ram and NTR, Ajay demanded to act free! Yes, Ajay is not charging any amount to be a part of ‘RRR’, as per the latest media reports, cited by Pinkvilla. It is being reported that he refrained from charging any fee due to his cordial relationship and friendship with Rajamouli.
Their friendship dates back to the days when ‘Eega’ was being shot. He had done a small voiceover for the film’s Hindi version ‘Makkhi’ in 2012. Although Ajay denied accepting any payment, the producer still offered him to pay him his actual market value. He still maintained that the reason he is part of the feature is friendship with Rajamouli.
The magnum opus is being reported to be a period drama set against the pre-independence era. It will bring to life the story of two legendary freedom fighters — Alluri Seetharama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR).
