Riding high with the enormous success of ‘Animal’, Bollywood star Bobby Deol has substantially increased his fee reportedly demanding Rs 8 crore for his antagonist role in Balakrishna’s upcoming 109th film, directed by Bobby(K. S. Ravindra). Bobby Deol’s career trajectory has taken a significant turn post ‘Animal’, propelling him into the spotlight as the go-to actor for roles with negative shades, a genre he hadn’t extensively explored in Bollywood until then. A reliable source reveals, “Bobby Deol’s fortunes changed drastically after ‘Animal,’ making him the preferred choice for roles with negative shades.”
Diving into the financial details, the source further discloses, “For his formidable portrayal alongside Balakrishna in this action-packed adventure, he will be taking home a handsome remuneration of Rs 8 crore.” Bobby Deol now stands among the top earners, surpassing esteemed colleagues like Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who had already made their mark in Tollywood.
“Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are currently drawing Rs 5 crore each, making Bobby Deol the highest earned among them. Director Bobby has crafted an exhilarating role tailored specifically for Bobby Deol, and the producers didn’t hesitate to offer a substantial sum, considering his widespread popularity across India,” the source emphasizes.
Notably, Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal previously clashed with Balakrishna in ‘Bhagavanth Kesari’, and the formula of introducing new villains opposite Balakrishna appears to resonate well, adding additional excitement to his action-packed ventures. In this context, the source concludes, “Introducing new villains opposite Balakrishna always works well, adding a spicy element to his action adventures.”
