“Bhaiya Ji,” featuring Manoj Bajpayee, hits theaters, showcasing the actor in both positive and negative roles.

The production budget exceeded for ‘Bhaiya Ji’

In today’s industry landscape, the fees of many leading actors have soared significantly. This upward trend often impacts the production quality of films. While the production standards may not be compromised, producers frequently negotiate profit-sharing agreements with actors to accommodate their high fees. Such was the case with Manoj Bajpayee. Vinod Bhanushali elaborated, stating, “We informed Manoj Ji that we couldn’t match his usual fee for this film. So, we proposed that he almost halve his fee and become a co-producer.”

Recently, Manoj Bajpayee also assumed a producer’s role under similar conditions for the film ‘Bhaiya Ji.’ Released on Friday, the film debuted with an opening of Rs 1.44 crore, with the first weekend yielding a net business of Rs 5.05 crore in the domestic market.
