Akshay Kumar demands Rs 27 crore for ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ sequel

Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar, has become media headline not for his forthcoming movie, Tees Maar Khan, but for his sudden fee hike. Now, this is the most circulated news in the media.

Akshay Kumar has demanded an enormous amount of Rs 27 crore when Ekta Kapoor’s production house, Balaji Telefilms, was approached him to play the role of Dawood Ibrahim in the sequel to Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.

Akshay Kumar has been requested by Ekta Kapoor, Balaji Telefilm's head honcho, to reconsider his fees because such a huge amount will make a big impact on the movie maker to rake any profit.

Ekta Kapoor is interested to cast Akshay Kumar in her upcoming sequel. Now, everything is depending on the actor. If everything goes well between them then Akshay Kumar will be seen taking over the character from Emraan Hashmi where he had left the character of Shoaib Khan in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.

Emraan Hashmi was the lead actor of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. His character was made based on real life underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

However, Akshay Kumar is not the only actor who has increased his fees. Several other actors in Bollywood are also in the race of increasing their payment in the coming year.
