Mega Power Star Ram Charan achieved immense stardom with just five films. He is making his bold Bollywood entry by daringly reprising Big B Amitabh Bachchan role in Zanjeer remake.

Even then for a debutante normally filmmakers pay less compared to seasoned stars. But Ram Charan’s remuneration shocked Bollywood heroes.

He became the highest paid Bollywood hero on debut. He is getting Rs 12 crs for Zanjeer while earlier Girish Kumar for Ramayya Vastavayya, Dhanush for Ranjhanaa and Atiya drew only 9crs,7crs and 6 crs respectively.

Since Reliance is releasing Zanjeer even in Telugu in a grand manner, filmmakers are paying Cherry such hefty amount. Priyanka Chopra is starring opposite Ram Charan in Zanjeer directed by Apurva Lakhia.
