What! Sushant Singh Rajput was only paid Rs 1 cr for Byomkesh

The Bandra Police seems to have asked for the contract of the late actor with Yash Raj Films for which the late actor has done his three films in his career. The actor got his second film in his career with Yash Raj Films getting the three movie contract. As we know Yash Raj often signs such deals with any novice to launch them in the B Town. In his three movie contract, Sushant was paid 30 lakhs for the  first movie, and as per the contract, if the film is a hit, he will be paid 60 lakhs.

Similarly for the third film, he was supposed to be paid 1 Crore provided his second film does well at the box office. However, the film whether it will be a hit or flop would be decided by the production company. His first movie with Yash Raj called Shuddh Desi Romance, opposite Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor, led him to Rs 30 lakh. He was then offered 1 Crore for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! However, the actor was unable to do his third film Paani with Yash Raj. 

However, it is still not clear whether he got 1 crore for the second movie despite being supposed to get 60 lakhs. Sushant was supposed to do the third film with Yash Raj titled Paani, which was supposed to be directed by Shekhar Kapur. But thanks to the creative difference between Aditya Chopra and Shekar Kapur, the film did not take off. Hence the Police are still not able to draw the right inference out of the same. Stay tuned to know more about it and others only with us.
