Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap have been busy promoting their new film Dobaaraa. When Taapsee was recently compared to Akshay Kumar for doing a lot of films like him, she complained that her paycheck doesn’t match his and that he earns a lot more. Anurag revealed that Akshay is the world’s sixth-richest actor.
Anurag Kashyap directed and Ekta Kapoor produced Dobaaraa. The film will be released in theatres on August 19. After 2018 hit Manmarziyaan and the biographical drama Saand Ki Aankh (2019), this is Anurag and Taapsee’s third collaboration.
Siddharth Kannan recently told Taapsee that he read a tweet calling Taapsee a “lady Akshay Kumar” for doing so many films. When Taapsee heard this, she replied, “I will accept this compliment humbly if my paycheck matches his; until then, please don’t do that.” He is the highest earner and the highest taxpayer, and yet mere ko it naNahiilte (I am not paid that much).” Hearing this, Anurag responded, “He is the world’s sixth richest actor.” “I am not even close,” Taapsee said when she heard this.
According to Forbes India, Akshay Kumar is the only Indian on Forbes US’s list of the World’s Highest Paid Celebrities in 2019. He came in at number 33 with earnings of $65 million (517 crores). In 2020, Akshay was ranked sixth among the world’s highest-paid actors. According to the magazine, Akshay earns $48.5 million ( 385 crores) per year, with the majority of his income coming from product endorsements.
