It is often taken for granted that every actor in Bollywood earns millions of rupees for working in one movie. Nowadays, the actors have changed their payment policy as they demand a share from the producer’s revenue if the movie does good business in the box office. However, it is noteworthy that not all actors belong to that category.
Only a few elite workers like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Akshay Kumar get paid in that manner. Besides, a few actresses have now raised their fees as per the recent reports and they earn more than their male counterparts do. There are a plethora of Bollywood stars who have received a very low remuneration while working in several big movies and here is a list of the top 7 lowest paid actors in the B-Town.

Rajkumar Rao – 20 lakhs INR for Shahid
One of the most versatile actors of the modern era, Rajkumar Rao is known for his work in movies like Made in China, Stree and Kai Po Che. The actor is still a bit new to the B-Town as there are a bunch of veterans sitting already in this industry. Hence, it is possible that he himself may have decided to charge lesser than the other stars and get more projects. For his excellent work in the movie Shahid, Rajkumar earned only 20 lakhs.
Nawazuddin Siddique – 10 lakhs INR for Talaash
Another versatile actor to feature on this list is the face of popular web series Sacred Games, Nawazuddin Siddique. While Nawaz has gained a lot of fame with his roles in Raees, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Kick, he did not receive a big amount for working alongside Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the movie Talaash. As per the sources, Siddique only made 10 lakhs working in that film.
Vicky Kaushal – 10 lakhs INR for Masaan
Very few actors have gained so much popularity in so less time like Vicky Kaushal. The actor has given his 200 percent in every role that he has received and his films namely Sanju and Uri: The Surgical Strike performed extremely well on the box office. Prior to these two movies, Kaushal even acted in a film named Masaan for which he only charged a fee of 10 lakhs.
Sanjay Mishra – 5 lakhs INR for Masaan
The movie Masaan makes its presence felt once again on this list as the producers of the movie paid a fee of 5 lakhs INR to the experienced actor, Sanjay Mishra. Majorly known for his side roles in humor movies, Mishra is one of the most hardworking actors of the B-Town yet he did not receive a massive sum for his work in Masaan.
R Madhavan – 50 lakhs INR for Saala Khadoos
Best known for his role of Farhan in 3 Idiots, the Superstar of South, R Madhavan has not delivered a blockbuster at the box office after studying together with Sharman Joshi and Aamir Khan in an engineering college. Perhaps, this could be the principal reason why the producers paid him half a crore rupees for working in Saala Khadoos.
Abhishek Bachchan – 1 Crore INR for Housefull 3
It is surprising to see Amitabh Bachchan’s son, Abhishek on this list because he is one of the most splendid actors of this era. The face of YRF’S Dhoom franchise, Bachchan earned 1 Crore INR for working with Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri in the third installment of Housefull.
Aftab Shivdasani – 70 Lakhs INR for Great Grand Masti
Looking at the trends on this list, it seems like the producers do not intend to pay much to the actors when making a third or fourth part of a famous series because just like Abhishek, Aftab Shivdasani did not receive a grand payment for working in the third installment of Masti franchise.
Thus, this was the countdown of the top 7 lowest paid Bollywood actors who received a lesser fee than what they deserved for working in the super-hit movies.
