Did you ever in your lifetime imagine that a film could earn Rs 1000 crore? Or Rs 1200 crore? Or even more than that? Well “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” has proven that the sky is the limit. After releasing on April 28, the SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan has grossed Rs 1,250 crore in two weeks.
Not only regarding business, its actors are also garnering rave reviews for their performance. But do you know the real hero of ‘Baahubali’, SS Rajamouli also acted in the movie? Surprised?
Well, not in ‘Baahubali 2′ but Rajamouli did a cameo in Baahubali: The Beginning’. The ace filmmaker essayed the role of alcohol-seller in the first part. Remember this man just before the item song ‘Manohari’.
Earlier, it was being said that Prabhas was the highest paid actor in the Baahubali cast as he was paid total fees of Rs 25 crore. But despite all this, Prabhas is not the highest paid artiste. So, if you were wondering who was the highest paid man on the sets of Baahubali, the answer is SS Rajamouli.
The brain behind the entire saga was paid Rs 28 crore. Apart from this amount, he also got one third of the profits. Since, the movie is still on its way to earning profits, wonder how much will the director have by the end of it.
