Acting – Movies
Shahrukh Khan charges approximately $6-7 Million or nearly 40-50 Crores (INR) for a movie! And his yearly income from acting constitutes almost the same as that of his counterparts in the Hollywood such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr, etc.
Probably the reason why he’s never going to Hollywood! Why take the pain when you can earn the same (or even more) by acting in your own country?
SRK owns a production house by the name Red Chillies Entertainment that boasts a turnover of 500 Crores (INR) or approximately $80 million! It has a subsidiary called Dreamz Unlimited that has been producing movies since Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (2000).
