Thalapathy Vijay, who is 48 years old, has been actively involved in the film industry for the past 27 years, and he has portrayed the protagonist in approximately 66 films.
Bollywood is widely recognized as the most expensive film industry in India, primarily due to the exorbitant fees of its actors and the substantial budgets of their films. Renowned actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Aamir Khan command such high fees that at times, their remuneration surpasses the entire budget of a film. These actors now demand fees exceeding Rs 100 crore per film. However, there is one actor who reportedly charges even more than the three Khans, Akshay Kumar, and Prabhas, making him the highest-paid actor in India.
Thalapathy Vijay, a prominent figure in the Tamil film industry, has recently emerged as the highest-paid actor in India. At the age of 48, Vijay has dedicated 27 years to the film industry, portraying the protagonist in approximately 66 films. Affectionately known as ‘Joe’ by his friends and family, Vijay has earned a well-deserved reputation in the industry.
After his movie ‘Leo,’ Vijay is set to collaborate with Venkat Prabhu for his next project. According to media reports, Vijay is being offered a substantial sum for this film. Produced under the AGS Entertainment banner, the makers have extended a lucrative offer to secure his involvement in the project.
As per reports, there is speculation that Vijay is demanding a fee of Rs 200 crore for his upcoming film, which is planned to be produced by AGS Entertainment. However, these reports have yet to be officially confirmed. Thalapathy Vijay is anticipated to collaborate with director Venkat Prabhu for his next project titled ‘Thalapathy 68’.
