First of all we have to understand the terms used in the industry. In Bollywood movies the actress’ and the lead actor’s salaries are known as the Bollywood paycheck. For releasing foreign films the leading actor or star of the film earns the foreign film paycheck which is almost always more than the Bollywood paycheck. Similarly, the producer of the film also receives higher amount of pay than the Bollywood paycheck.
