The times of Big B are gone. The next generation of actors in bollywood have started earning more than Amitabh Bachan for a single movie. Whether or not they give continuous hits doesn't matter to them, but their salaries keep increasing year after year. The bar chart below shows the highest paid actors in India and their salaries in crores.
Akshay Kumar, Amir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, and Salman Khan are the top 5 highest paid actors in bollywood industry right now. Akshay stays at the top by taking more than 14 crores for a single Hindi movie. He is being paid more because he has given more hits recently compared to other leading stars. If its a comedy then Akshay stands out as the favourite choice of the producers. The best part about Akki is, he has not changed a lot after becoming the highest paid actor in the country. Well if this is the story of bollywood, down south Rajinikanth enjoys more than what these actors earn in bollywood. One movie in two or three years and you can't imagine the length of the queue that is outside the cinema hall waiting for a ticket to watch his movie. Click here for Kareena Kapoor's salary.
