Akshay Kumar is charging Rs 1 Crore per day for his upcoming film Jolly LLB 2. Jolly LLB replaced Arshad Warsi with Akshay Kumar for the sequel, but little did we know the amount of money they are paying the actor. Akshay Kumar is one of those actors who is famous in the industry for being on time, or rather earlier and also for finishing the shoot as early as possible in about 40-50 days.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, ”The producers of Jolly LLB, a rather jolly first film that starred Arshad Warsi, have ambitiously signed on Akshay Kumar for the project. Kumar loved the script and readily agreed: but pulled out a little black book of his own decrees. Kumar requested to be paid per day. His per day fee is Rs 1 Crores.”

Akshay Kumar said that he will only shoot from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Also, he gets paid even on days the set isn’t ready. they want to wind up the film quick. I started shooting for Jolly LLB 2 and you would laugh when I say this but the shooting will be wrapped up by next month. Even 50 days is a lot of time to complete shooting for a film. On an average, I take 40 to 45 days to finish my work.
Directed by Subhash Kapoor, ‘Jolly LLB 2’ also features Huma Qureshi, Annu Kapoor and Sourabh Shukla. The movie is slated to release on February 10, 2017.
