Currently, he has plenty of films in his kitty, including Radhe Shyam, Salaar, Adipurush, Project K, and Spirit. Interestingly most of his films are being produced by Bollywood producer Bhushan Kumar.
If the latest reports are to be believed, Prabhas is the highest-paid actor in the entertainment industry next to Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. A source revealed to Bollywood Hungama, “Bhushan Kumar is amongst the biggest producers of Bollywood today and he is looking to make the biggest of the films in the post-pandemic world. And hence, he is teaming up not only with a Bollywood actor, but someone who has the widest possible reach pan India – Prabhas. His presence gives Bhushan and his team the liberty to make films without being bothered much about the budgets. He is supremely excited to take things to the next level with Radhe Shyam, Adipurush and Spirit.”
The report further quoted a source as saying, “Working with Prabhas is a matter of prestige today given his unparalleled stardom. The actor has reportedly charged Rs. 150 crores flat to be a part of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Spirit, and with this, he has emerged as the highest-paid actor of India today. He got Rs. 150 crores for Adipurush as well. He is the third actor in the last 10 years to be paid upwards of Rs. 100 crores after Salman Khan (who got Rs. 100 crores plus for Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai) and Akshay Kumar (who started charging Rs. 100 crores from Bell Bottom).”
