Exclusive: Vijay Receives Record Salary

The biggest film among the three that will be released in theatres for the Sankranthi festival is Thalapathy Vijay's "Vaarasudu." Whether it's the budget, the theatrical business, or the hero's pay, the film wins on all counts.

Vijay is one of India's biggest stars. As part of his remuneration, he received a whopping Rs 105 Cr +GST.

In other words, he will receive Rs 105 crore. The producer will also pay the GST amount (which is close to Rs 19 Cr). All of these transactions are said to be completed through a bank.

Director Vamshi Paidipally also earns Rs 15 crore.

The film features a well-known cast and crew, including Thaman and Rashmika, who command high fees. The production cost is approximately Rs 100 Cr. The film's total budget is around Rs 250 Cr.

"Veera Simha Reddy" and "Waltair Veerayya," on the other hand, cost the producers in the range of Rs 100 and Rs 150 Cr each. Balkrishna was paid Rs 12 crore, while Chiranjeevi was paid Rs 35 crore.

Surprisingly, all of these Sankranthi films are profitable for their producers. How much profit the producers make will be determined after the film's release.

"Veera Simha Reddy" and "Waltair Veerayya" must gross Rs 250 crore in the Telugu market together.

Dil Raju, the producer of Vijay's Vaarasudu, is not betting high on the Telugu version, but the Tamil market is vast for this project.
