With Hrithik Roshan bagging a Rs 35 crore deal with Adlabs Films, After Hours asks readers who they think deserves to be the highest paid star in Bollywood.
Shah Rukh Khan should be the highest paid actor. He has the skills, charisma and superstardom to deserve the money. Kavita R, engineering student
My choice would be Aishwarya Rai. Firstly, she’s the most beautiful woman in the world. Secondly, she’s a rage on the international circuit. Piyush Whanmane, call-centre employee
Only Amitabh Bachchan deserves crores as his fees. It is surprising that he charges less than many of the self-proclaimed superstars. Ravi Shekhar, marketing manager
I had read about Aamir Khan being the highest actor in Bollywood. I am sure he deserves that tag. He puts in his 100 per cent. That’s the hallmark of a great actor. Arun Gupta, shop owner
I would say Amitabh Bachchan, because no one can match up to the legend. Even if Bachchan decides to charge Rs 15 crore, it looks plausible. Prakash Kumar, writer
Bachchan, Hrithik and Shah Rukh deserve to be in the league of the highest paid actors. They are known for their box-office recovery. Atul Mohan, trade analyst
We bid our big bucks on the Big B whose charisma has redefined 60 as being sexy. His popularity cutting across generations and continents, Amitabh Bachchan is one star whom even the box-office salutes. Considering his body of work and his unfailing ability to deliver, he rightly deserves the highest remuneration!

This is supposed to be a big comedy! Many were seen commenting that Sunil did a better job than Brahmanandam in the film.
Salman Khan is now the highest paid star in Bollywood?
Salman Khan is on a roll. His last two films Dabangg and Ready are among the all-time blockbusters of Indian film industry and his acting fee has understandably shot up to a level that makes him the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
Buzz is that producer Boney Kapoor has shelled out a whopping Rs 10 crores to sign Salman Khan for the sequel of No Entry. The film is titled No Entry Mein Entry and will be directed by Anees Bazmee, director of ‘No Entry’ and also of ‘Ready’.
The project has been through a lot of teething problems due to differences between Boney Kapoor and Anees Bazmee. The latter apparently leaked the film’s original script to Sajid Nadiadwala who made Thank You out of it. Even Bazmee and Salman reportedly had a tiff while filming Ready in Bangkok.
But now, all the differences seem to have been ironed out. Bazmee is working on a new script. Boney Kapoor understands Salman Khan’s increased market value after the super successes of his last two films and did not object to the star’s higher acting fee. He reportedly paid between eight to ten crore rupees to Salman for doing No Entry Mein Entry.
If true, that makes Salman the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
A confirmation is still awaited from Boney Kapoor.
