After the COVID-19 pandemic that led to the lockdown and in turn, leading to the cancellation of all the shoots, the economy seems to subside. And due to this financial crunch, several actors have taken a cut in their payments for their work. Now, according to a report by Pinkvilla, actor Shahid Kapoor has done the same for his upcoming film, Jersey.
Shahid had previously signed Jersey on two conditions – a remuneration of Rs 33 crore and a percentage in the profit share. The makers had mutually agreed on the same demands and the film shoot was on when the Covid outbreak caused a temporary pause in the film’s schedule.In the last few months, the whole perspective of making a film and its budget has changed considerably. So the producers requested their lead star to take a pay cut, to keep the project on floors. They felt the film will otherwise go over-budget.
