Director Srikanth’s Revelation That Sharad Kelkar’s Surprising ₹101 Fee Unveiled!

According to the film’s director Tushar Hiranandani, actor Sharad Kelkar, who last appeared in the biographical picture Srikanth, starring Rajkummar Rao, only paid ₹ 101 for the movie. According to Tushar Hiranandani, in an interview with news agency, Sharad Kelkar initially requested payment based on his market value. Nevertheless, the actor was inspired by the film’s narration and made the decision to take the job on, paying or not. The director stated, “When Sharad came to meet me, there was a price he quoted, and he deserves it also. But then I told him that it was difficult for me and requested him to listen to the narration.”

The actor from Goliyon Ki Raasleela-Ram Leela left after the narration, the director said, adding that he had not expected him to be in the movie. But the next day, producer Bhushan Kumar informed Tushar Hiranandani that the actor was eager to work on the project at whatever cost as he did not “want to miss out on an opportunity of this kind.”

For the unversed, Sharad Kelkar plays the role of Ravi, Srikanth Bolla’s best friend. “Sharad enters the film post interval and guess the fee on his Srikanth contract? It is just ₹ 101! In reality, Ravi is the man behind the success of Srikanth Bolla,” noted Tushar Hiranandani.

While reviewing the movie for news agency, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, “Srikanth is a classic rags-to-riches saga that is enriched enormously by the director’s refusal to employ the standard tropes of the genre. Not only does he keep the storytelling simple and ship-shape, he also ensures that the craft that has gone into the project – cinematographer Pratham Mehta and editors Debasmita Mitra and Sanjay Sankla do their jobs to perfection – does not overshadow the essence of the narrative.”

Srikanth marks the first-ever on-screen collaboration of Alaya F and Rajkummar Rao.
