Biopics in Bollywood? Few years ago, even this idea was considered not feasible enough for the entertainment industry in India. But today, the genre has evolved a lot and we get to see biopics on the silver screen. A new sub-genre, sports-biopic, has unfolded over the years and the audience seems to appreciate these kind of films too.
These sports-biopics work well at the box-office and garner huge box office collections as well. The film makers owe it to the real sportspersons who lend their stories for their ventures. But, what is disheartening is the meagre amount of royalty that these sportstars get paid for their biopics.
Lets take a look at how much these people got paid for their biopics :
1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni For M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story :
M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story is touted to be one of the most anticipated movies of the year. It is yet to be released but it has garnered a lot of appreciation from the audience already. The trailer looks promising and Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays the role of M.S. Dhoni in the film has been praised for the efforts he’s put into this film. Looking at the popularity and fan following of Dhoni, it is sure that the movie will be a blockbuster and Dhoni got a whopping amount of Rs. 80 crores for the same.
