Sam Bahadur: Here's how much Vicky Kaushal, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra charged for Meghna Gulzar's film

Vicky Kaushal, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra came together for Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur that released in cinemas on December 1. Despite clashing with Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal, the film has managed to hold well at the box-office and is likely to stay strong due to positive word of mouth. But do you know how much the lead actors charged for the historical drama?

According to a report by The Financial Express, Vicky charged Rs 10 crore whereas Sanya and Fatima were paid a crore each.

In an exclusive interview with Firstpost, when Vicky was asked about his prep for the role, he said, “When it comes to the body language, the way of walking and talking, it was a little tricky despite having visual references, and his recorded interviews, but they were not of the age that we were trying to crack in the film. We were showing his forty years of service. All his interviews were post his retirement when he was 75 to 80 years-old then. Firstly, to understand how he spoke was a challenge and he used to speak in a clipped British accent. And his interviews are in English. Since Sam Bahadur is a Hindi film, the tricky part was how to convert that element into a Hindi conversational dialogue.”

The actor added, “I sat with Meghna Gulzar with the script. Usually what I do is I read the script multiple times and I never mug up the script. But here I couldn’t do that till I cracked the tonality because then you start reading the character in your own way. Then a lot of ‘you’ comes into it. Here I didn’t want to set a pattern in the way that my mind was reading out the lines.”
