Ever wondered how much Baahubali makers paid for each actor? Take a look at how much these actors have earned from Baahubali 2 alone which might leave you in shock.
Prabhas: He played the role of Amarendra Baahubali in the film which was appreciated by film critics and lauded by global audiences. Prabhas did rigorous workouts for Baahubali series and he completely dedicated himself for this project for two to three years without signing any new film. It is learned that Prabhas got a pay cheque of Rs 25 Cr for Baahubali-The Conclusion.
Rana: He had entertained movebuffs as lead actor in films like Leader, Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum and Nene Raju Nene Mantri. But Rana's career took a 360-degree turn after his role as Bhalladeva in Baahubali. Playing an antagonist required a lot of practice. Although fans hated Bhallaladeva's character, they loved Rana's performance. there's no doubt that Rana as Bhallaladeva did a justice to his character in the film. Reportedly, he charged Rs 15 Cr as his pay check for Baahubali 2.
Anushka Shetty: She shared screen space with Prabhas in Baahubali series and we don't have to tell you what a hit pair they are in Tollywood. Usually, Anushka would charge Rs 2 cr for per film but for Baahubali-The Conclusion, she got double the payment of Rs 5 Cr, as per reports in the trade circles.
Tamannaah: The actor's screen space in the the Baahubali sequel was not much. Yet we hear that she reportedly charged Rs 5 Cr as remuneration for Baahubali-The Conclusion.
Ramya Krishna: The first choice to play Sivagami was Sridevi. However, for whatever reasons, it went to Ramya Krishna. But we are not complaining as none could have pulled off the role like Ramya did! She began her second innings with this film and Rajamouli gave her career the much needed break. Post Baahubali, she has become one of the most sought-after actors in Tollywood to play strong supporting characters. It is learned that the makers of Baahubali 2 paid a whopping Rs 2.5 cr as remuneration for the film.
Sathyaraj: His character is one of the most important ones in the film. In fact, it's vital for the central part of the Baahubali in both one and two. Undoubtedly, Kattappa is one of the most loved characters in the film. He won a million hearts with his mind-blowing performance in the film. He was apparently paid Rs 2 Cr for both the parts.
