Superstar Rajinikanth decided to take the salary cut because Lyca Productions, which had produced 2.0, did not do the business.
Chennai: Rajinikanth is busy inviting guests for his daughter Soundarya's wedding which will be held next week has now planned to take a pay cut for his next film with AR Murugadoss.
Rajini's last movie Petta which was released on Pongal directed by Karthik Subbaraj did wonders at the box-office and gave his fans 'Rajinisms' they had been missing for a while now. The movie continues to have a good run in the box office.
However, Rajini's 2.0, which also featured Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, turned out to be a box office dud. Due to this, the superstar has now decided to take a pay cut for AR Murugadoss's next which will be produced by Lyca Productions, the same company that produced 2.0.
According to media reports, 2.0, directed by Shankar, created quite a buzz and broke many records but failed to make the cash registers ring. The movie was produced at a whopping Rs 543 crore. So, the Petta star learning that the production house suffered a financial setback due to 2.0, decided to take a pay cut to help out.
According to reports, the director had earlier revealed that the movie will not be a political one. Yogi Babu has been roped in to be a part of the film. Yogi has earlier worked with Thalapathy Vijay's Sarkar which was a big hit.
