Sushant Singh Rajput got paid this amount by Yash Raj’s 3 movie deal
After Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise, many big names have been accused of unfair treatment towards the Late actor.
The police went through the film contracts under the banner of YRF films that were signed by the late actor.
According to the contract submitted by Yash Raj Films (YRF), owned by Aditya Chopra, the actor had signed a 3 movie deal with the company where he was paid 30 lakhs for the first film and would be paid 60 lakhs in the second and 1 crore for the third if the first turned out to be a hit
The first film YRF and Sushant collaborated was Shuddh Desi Romance co-starring Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor where the actor was paid a sum of 30 lakhs. After the success of the film, Sushant was apparently paid 1 crore for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy helmed by Dibakar Banerjee. However, as the official contract states 60 lakhs, no evidence has been found of the actual amount paid.
The third film, Paani, was going to be directed by Shekhar Kapur and was Sushant’s passion project. But, this film was later shelved due to the creative differences between Aditya Chopra and Shekhar Kapur.
