Although Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt have brief roles in S S Rajamouli’s RRR, they have been paid their market price.
“Alia Bhatt has been paid what she normally charges other producers in Mumbai. Although she has less than 20 minutes of screen time, she is the official leading lady of RRR and has been paid close to Rs 9 crore (Rs 90 million),” a source tells Subhash K Jha.

For seven days’ work, Devgn has been paid a whopping Rs 35 crore (Rs 350 million).
