Actor Manoj Bajpayee impressed the viewers and fans after his terrific performance in the recently released second season of the web series Family Man. After a much-anticipated wait, the Family Man season 2 released on June 4. The web series has turned out to be a huge hit after the release of the second season. Amidst all this, it is reported that Manoj Bajpayee has decided to hike his fees. According to a report, the actor has spiked his fees for Family Man 3.
As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, a source revealed that Manoj Bajpayee has asked Rs. 2.25 to Rs. 2.50 crores per episode. The source in the report said, “From what we’ve heard, for The Family Man Season 3, Manoj Bajpayee has asked Rs. 2.25 to Rs. 2.50 crores per episode. The actor feels that he deserves this much since it has become one of the most-watched shows of all time. Moreover, he’s the lead actor and audiences have raved about his performance. Hence, he has made the demand for a pay hike. The discussions have been going on.”
According to the report, an industry insider said that the actor has asked for Rs. 20.25 crore or Rs. 22.50 crores in total. The insider said, “Assuming there are 9 episodes in The Family Man Season 3, just like the earlier 2 parts, this means that Manoj Bajpayee has asked for around Rs. 20.25 crore or Rs. 22.50 crores in totality. That’s more than double of what he was paid for Season 2. This is a huge leap but also a well-deserved one. Manoj Bajpayee is right now the Aamir Khan of digital space. His presence has helped the show and so has his flawless performance. It’s great if he receives this said figure. The web has indeed proved to be a boon for talented actors like him.”
