Aamir Khan sets record with ‘Talaash’ fee

Perhaps, for the first time in the history of Hindi cinema an actor will get a larger share of the profit than the primary producers

Everyone was quite shocked when writer-director Reema Kagti managed to rope in Aamir Khan for her thriller Talaash (earlier called Dhuan). Insiders say Aamir is one actor who doesn’t get easily impressed. So one wondered how she managed the casting coup! According to the official version, the young filmmaker had done it solely on the strength of her powerful script. We think Reema’s close camaraderie with Kiran Rao (Aamir’s wife) and the ace actor’s harmonious relationship with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani (he was in their first production, Dil Chahta Hai, remember?) were deciding factors for Aamir to say ‘yes’. Now, we have found out something else too. Something that’s left us shocked. Farhan and Ritesh have agreed to let Aamir pocket 80 percent of the profits from Talaash! Yes, 80 percent! Now we know it is common practice in B-town for actors to take a share of the profits rather than charge a hefty fee. Aamir had done it earlier with 3 Idiots too. But 80 percent? We’ll bet that this the highest percentage of profit sharing any superstar has received, so far. Aamir will also be credited as the co-producer of the film, just like Shahrukh Khan is being credited for Don 2. And don’t forget this will mean that Farhan and Ritesh’s production house Excel Entertainment, which is the primary producer, will have to be content with only 20 percent of the spoils. Guess that’s the price you pay for casting Aamir Khan!Subscribe to me on YouTube

  • XYZ

    Hello Aamir Khan Fans.. If you r real fans then keep praising your star Y the hell r u pulling SRK’s name here?
    Yes I agree aamir chooses the best projects he is perfect at that but please he is not the perfect actor.. He has the same expression on his face always in every movie.
    Ans for SRK, let me inform u how perfect actor he is.. Darr n Don2 as villian, DDLJ & JTHJ as romantic, Swades & Chak De India as serious character, Kal ho na ho & Devdas makes one cry, Don and Don2 as real action( no flying using effects), Mai hoo na, Yes Boss & OSO as Comic roles.. My Name is Khan as differently abled, Hum tumhare h sanam n Devdas as possesive and angry and so on….
    And there are more films in each category to prove but not enuf space to write..
    So watch it befor you all write.. Other actors(except Akshay he too has variety of roles) stand nowhere close to SHAHRUKH KHAN.. So MIND IT..

  • ALI NAWAZ KALROO

    Aamir Khan is the best actor ever in the world.
