Recently we have seen two movies that have done some reshaping of Indian acting, where a leading Hindi actor was demoted and his salary decreased considerably. However this is not the first time in this genre of Bollywood, where an actor’s paycheck has gone down. Earlier during the 1990’s, there were numerous incidents of actor being hospitalized due to an accidental bullet injury. But actor Inaamulhaq Gate (who played the role of Ajit Kapoor in the movie ‘A Day’?) was lucky as he recovered well and that too very comfortably.
Inaamulhaq Net Worth is $1 Million – $5 Million
Therefore how much does an actor earn in Hindi films? This is something that is discussed and deliberated upon by producers and studio directors throughout the country. The logic behind such a computation is that the salary earned by an actor is the average salary of all the other actors who have worked together and are working presently. If a star is making less than an average Hindi actor then that is a good sign. It is better to be liked than liked by a studio that is why producers prefer to choose an experienced actor to play the pivotal role of a character.
The earning capacity of an actor also depends on the type of project that he is opting for. For example an actress can earn as much from a small budget movie as she can in a high budget film. This difference in earning power is further highlighted by the length of a film. For example, a Mumbai girl can be seen crying in a Hindi movie to a Kashmiri girl will stay glued to her television set while chatting to her friend on the phone. Producers and studio directors need to consider various factors before choosing an actor for a part.
So how much does an actor earn? Well! How much you earn is dependent on your experience, the kind of movies that you have been involved in, your networking contacts and the kind of role that you are playing. However, there is one thing that is common among the three. An actor’s salary depends on the success rate.
In the world of box office earning, an actor plays a role to either earn popularity or money. For example, in Mumbai, an action superstar like Sharukh Khan is expected to earn millions of dollars from his movie. However, the success rate of his films is very less. His fans wait for him at the airport and his name is mentioned even in the holy books.
A Bollywood actor like Shah Rukh Khan of Jodha Akbar’s Karan episode has proved the point of earning millions of dollars from the box office. However, his earning power depends on his popularity. Similarly, Anushka Shetty’s recent film “Mankatha” showed how a female artiste can command huge amounts from the box office. So, if you are an actor and wish to improve your status in the Bollywood industry, then begin by signing up for a film contract. This will not only help you in getting better roles and earning higher amount of money, but will also improve your reputation in the film industry.
