During the audio launch function of “Enthiran” that was held in malaysia in the month of July producer Kalanithi maran made a startling revelation that superstar Rajinikanth did not get even a single rupee as salary and said he would do so after the release of the movie.
Since the production cost of the movie was very high which almost touched 160crores including the salaries of all crew who worked in the movie except Rajini.
But there was a talk in the industry that Rajini would get between 40 to 45 crores as salary and if that happened he might become the highest paid actor in asia.
Now the cat is out of the bag. According to a very reliable source, Sun pictures Managing director kalanithi maran and COO Hansraj Saxena handed over the cheque to Rajini at his residence as Enthiran Salary.
After the massive success of the movie when Sun pictures decided to pay him they seem to have called the actor and asked for an appointment to hand over the salary.
Rajini in response seem to have told them that they could come at any time that was convenient to them and asked them to pay the whole salary as cheque after TDS is deducted.
Just as a clue the source, who did not want him to be identified, gave us the TDS(Tax deducted at source) amount alone and avoided telling us the salary amount.
Want to guess? TDS amount alone was more than 10 crores of rupees and we leave the salary amount calculation to the visitors.
Now rajini is the highest paid actor in asia!!!
