Every Friday has a new story at the box office and that day changes the fate of every actor. Tiger Shroff, who was on the rise prior to the pandemic, has certainly lost his audience pull in the post-pandemic times. Just before the release of Heropanti 2, Tiger Shroff had signed films with a hike in his price. He came on board Ganapath for Rs. 35 crores and also signed a contract for Bade Miyan Chote Miyan for Rs. 45 crores. The actor had also done the paperwork for Karan Johar’s Screw Dheela for Rs. 35 crores.
And now, we have exclusively learnt that producers have asked Tiger Shroff to reduce his remuneration by 50 percent and bring it down in the range of Rs. 17 to 20 crores per film. “Times have changed and paying such a huge sum as upfront fees to Tiger didn’t make sense to many producers. To support Jackky and Vashu Bhagnani on this multi-starrer, Tiger Shroff brought down his acting fees to Rs. 25 crores. Not just him, Akshay Kumar and Ali Abbas Zafar too reduced their fees. The process of him signing the films has slowed down because most of the producers are not in sync with the amount that he is demanding,” a trade source informed Bollywood Hungama.
Some other producers too, who are in talks with Tiger, are negotiating on his price, which ranges from Rs. 17 to 22 crores. “It’s a short-term thing. One hit and Tiger will roar again. It’s just a matter of time before the industry realizes that ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. This is a lull phase for not just Tiger, but the entire industry. Everything will be back to normal once the films start working,” the trade source concluded.
Meanwhile, Tiger will now start shooting for Bade Miyan Chote Miyan next.
