The latest craze in the Indian film industry is the $100 million salary club. Yes, not one or his two, but several actors are already part of this elite club. I recently heard that Pawan Kalyan has charged $100 million for his next film, OG. But there was a time, decades ago, when it was inconceivable that he would charge a billion yen per film, and this actor started that tradition, later with Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. , joined by Salman Khan. If you want to know more, read on!

Currently, actors such as Thalapathy Vijay, Akshay Kumar, Rajinikanth, Pawan Kalyan and Prabhas are reportedly charging $100 million in salaries for each of their films. But in the 1990s, none of the above were on the list of actors charging $1 billion for a single film, except for Rajini. In fact, even Rajini is the third Indian actor to achieve this feat. So who was the first actor to earn $1 billion for his own movie? Below is your answer, so stay calm.

The news broke in 1992 when Stardust magazine printed an edition of none other than ‘Megastar’ Chiranjeevi with the headline ‘Bigger than Bachchan’. Yes, Chill was the first to charge $10 million for his movie. The reward went to Aapadbandhavudu, which was a huge box office hit when it was released. With this, he beat Amitabh Bachchan, who once claimed $85,000 to $90 million, according to DNA.

Chiranjeevi also joined Kamal Haasan, who billed the same amount for his film in 1994, and Rajinikanth followed him. Then Amitabh Bachchan joined this club in his 1995. After that, several actors joined his billion dollar club, including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Nagarjuna and Venkatesh.
