It is always believed that actors demand a massive fee for every project they sign. However, sometimes they come across such enticing scripts that the remuneration hardly matters, like in the case of the upcoming crime drama – ‘Phamous’.
Set in the infamous ravines of Chambal, debutant director Karan Lalit Butani’s Phamous boasts of some of the most renowned and brilliant names of the industry like Jackie Shroff, Jimmy Sheirgill, Shriya Saran, Mahie Gill, Pankaj Tripathi and others.
It is quite a feat for a movie that is made on a tight budget to have such well-known and talented actors on board. But the story of the film was so captivating that most actors didn’t mind coming on board with little or no pay at all. Yeah, shocking but true.
Our info says that Karan Lalit Butani revealed that Jackie charged just a little more than a penny for this film. That’s the case with all the actors who worked with him on this film. All of them charged almost half of what they charge otherwise. And Mahie Gill didn’t even charge a single dime for the project.
‘Phamous’ revolves around a power struggle and invites you on an odyssey that hits your heart and face at the same time. ‘Phamous’ is a Karan Lalit Butani film, presented by Raj Khatri Filmz and produced by Raj Khatri, Vidisha Productions, and Amitabh Chandra. The film is scheduled to release on June 1, 2018.
