South superstar Vijay Sethupathi gets paid more than Shahid Kapoor for web series ‘Sunny’

Sunny marks Shahid Kapoor’s digital debut as well as Vijay’s first too.

Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi will soon begin shooting for their next project which is an Amazon Prime Original series titled Sunny to be directed by The Family Man fame director duo Raj and DK. This will mark the digital debut of Shahid Kapoor on the OTT platform.

According to Bollywood Hungama, a source says, “Owing to the success of The Family Man, the company believed in the filmmaker duo and when they brought this show to the table and suggested a huge budget because of the two stars they were planning to get and Amazon agreed. This would be Shahid’s big debut and Vijay’s first web show as well. Plus, they loved the casting coup.”


The informer also added that Shahid Kapoor asked for a hefty 40 crore plus for the whole season and his contract also mentions a hike in his remuneration if the show gets renewed for another season. Reportedly, The plan is to make it into three seasons as of now. Vijay, on the other hand, has not put a clause like that but straight away asked for a sum of around Rs. 55 crores. Both of them have roles that are on equal footing but Vijay is undoubtedly a megastar from the South and the makers agreed on the deal. He is getting a much bigger sum compared to Shahid but unlike Shahid, his contract has no mention of any hike for the second season.
