Superstar Rajinikanth is one of the most recognized names in India. The senior actor carved a name for himself with unique mannerism and a vibrant on-screen presence. Rajini’s movies set the ticket counters on fire irrespective of the talk of the movie.

Interestingly, Thaliava’s movies enjoy a staggering run at the overseas market as well. His previous movie Kabali minted a whopping sum of Rs 105 crores from the overseas market alone. This shows the star power and crowd-pulling capabilities of the pan-India star.

With such huge market, it is only fair that Rajini charges anything around Rs 40 crores per movie. However, the latest report indicates that Rajini is charging over Rs 65 crores for his next movie that is set to be directed by Karthik Subbaraj. The makers have no problem in shelling out the sum as they are very confident about the content of the movie and have reportedly paid a handsome to music director Anirudh as well.

Rajini allotted just 40 days for the movie and is charging Rs 65 crores. If the reports are to be believed, Rajini is charging around Rs 1.5 crores per day. It needs to be seen if this commercial entertainer can reap benefits. In the meanwhile, Rajini’s latest movie, Kaala is slated for release on June 7th.
