Guess what Abhinav Kashyap got as the signing amount for his next film with Viacom 18?
An astounding Rs. 70 million! And that’s not all; Kashyap’s total remuneration from the film will also include a share in the profits, as Kashyap is co-producing the film through his partnership firm, Movie Temple Productions.
Abhinav Kashyap shot to the limelight after the box-office success of his maiden film, Salman Khan starrer, Dabangg (2010). Kashyap has also received a signing amount of Rs. 50 million from Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Limited before he signed up with Viacom 18. However, as the film with Ashtavinayak did not materialize, Kashyap returned the said amount.
While the cast for the Viacom 18 project is yet to be announced, the location (Australia) has been finalised. In an earlier interview to Koimoi.com, Kashyap had said that he would prefer working with big stars.
