Mumbai: Amazon Prime has proudly announced a superstar in their midst. Akshay Kumar has agreed to be the first Bollywood A-lister to hop on to the digital bandwagon.

Apparently, his son Aarav had a big hand in Akshay’s decision. Aarav persuaded his dad to go digital. The zeroes on the cheque also helped. Apparently, Akshay is being paid a staggering amount of Rs 90 crore to feature in the web series. Though no one from the production team is willing to confirm this figure, a source close to the project admitted on condition of anonymity that  Akshay’s fee is “in the vicinity of Rs 90 crore, if not more.”

 

“To begin with, Akshay was not keen to do a digital series. Amazon pursued him relentlessly. They hope to get in more Bollywood superstars,” says the source.

Interestingly, there is a buzz that Salman Khan is also on the verge of signing up with Amazon.
