In the wake of the massive success of 'Animal,' Bollywood actor Bobby Deol has experienced a surge in demand, leading to a significant boost in his remuneration. Reportedly, Deol is now drawing a hefty Rs 8 crore for his antagonist role in Balakrishna's upcoming 109th film, directed by Bobby.
According to industry insiders, Bobby Deol's career trajectory took a dramatic turn post-'Animal,' propelling him to become the go-to choice for roles with negative shades. A source reveals, "Everything changed for Bobby Deol after 'Animal,' and he has become the most sought-after actor for roles with negative shades since he wasn't among the hits in Bollywood until then." And adds, “He will be drawing a fancy pay of Rs 8 crore for his ruthless role opposite Balakrishna in this action adventure.”
In comparison to his Bollywood counterparts in Tollywood, Bobby Deol has outpaced them in terms of remuneration. Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddique, who had entered the Telugu film industry earlier, reportedly drew Rs 5 crore each. In contrast, Bobby Deol has effortlessly surpassed them with a whopping Rs 8 crore for his ruthless role opposite Balakrishna in this upcoming action-adventure.
Director Bobby has crafted an intriguing character for Bobby Deol, making him a perfect fit for the role. The producers were willing to invest substantially in Deol due to his pan-India appeal. It is worth noting that this trend of Bollywood actors entering Tollywood to play antagonistic roles has proven successful in recent times. Actor Arjun Rampal's portrayal opposite Balakrishna in 'Bhagavanth Kesari' was well-received, adding an extra layer of excitement to Balakrishna's action-packed ventures.
As the anticipation builds for Balakrishna's 109th film, the inclusion of Bobby Deol in a villainous role is expected to bring a fresh dynamic to the narrative and elevate the film's overall appeal. Fans of both actors are eagerly awaiting the outcome of this collaboration, which promises to be a compelling addition to the world of Telugu cinema.
Additionally, a striking poster was also unveiled, featuring Bobby in a dark character for the Tamil pan-Indian film 'Kanguva,' starring superstar Suriya in the lead role.
