Without a doubt, 'Thuppakki' was one of the greatest successes that Tamil cinema has seen in recent times. Directed by AR Murugadoss, the Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal starrer continues to bag profit, even beyond 100 days now. Now the magazine is gearing up to shoot out in Hindi too.
The story of a young and energetic army captain, is to be remade in Hindi. The role of 'Ilayathalapathy' will be played by Akshay Kumar in the Hindi version. But what is making the buzz right now is the remuneration that Akshay will draw from this deal. It is rumoured that he will be paid a whooping sum of 50 crore rupees, for this movie! When quizzed about this, "Is it? I am not aware of this. Pay check of the actor is a business strictly between the production house and the actor himself. I am nowhere involved in this" says the director of the movie, ARM.
