Usually we think that Rajinikanth takes high remuneration than the others working in this film. But this film seems to be different as Akshay Kumar is taking more remuneration than Rajinikanth. Even though it seems to be unbelievable, it is true as per the Kollywood talk. There is a logic behind it. Usually Akshay Kumar does three four films in an year. But he has to spend the whole year for Shankar film. So Akshay Kumar demanded huge remuneration and the film makers also agreed as they are eyeing on the Bollywood market.
