Rajkumar Rao – 20 lakhs INR for Shahid
One of the most versatile actors of the modern era, Rajkumar Rao is known for his work in movies like Made in China, Stree and Kai Po Che. The actor is still a bit new to the B-Town as there are a bunch of veterans sitting already in this industry. Hence, it is possible that he himself may have decided to charge lesser than the other stars and get more projects. For his excellent work in the movie Shahid, Rajkumar earned only 20 lakhs.
Nawazuddin Siddique – 10 lakhs INR for Talaash
Another versatile actor to feature on this list is the face of popular web series Sacred Games, Nawazuddin Siddique. While Nawaz has gained a lot of fame with his roles in Raees, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Kick, he did not receive a big amount for working alongside Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the movie Talaash. As per the sources, Siddique only made 10 lakhs working in that film.
