We all know that that back and collar of a good Bollywood flick is the main lead – be it an actor or an actress. However, supporting characters play a huge role as well. There’s no doubt that some of them have managed to carve a niche even for themselves despite appearing in dud films. If we recall, Bollywood’s supporting actors like Jimmy Shergill and Vivek Oberoi etc.  have delivered some mind-blowing performances in the recent past. So won’t it be interesting to know how much they actually get paid?

Here are 7 Bollywood supporting actors and their equally handsome salaries!

Every ’90s kid would remember Kunal Khemu as Bollywood’s supporting actor who made us laugh in ‘Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke’ way back in 1993. Kunal then lunged as an actor with his first lead role in ‘Kalyug’ (2005). However, his career never took off and he last appeared in ‘Golmaal Again’ (2017).

His fees? Rs 2 crore per appearance (WHATTTT!!!)


Neil Nitin Mukesh – seen less but we want more!



Do you know that Neil Nitin Mukesh did two movies as a child artist in ’90s? While the Bollywood’s supporting actor made his debut with the critically acclaimed movie ‘Johnny Gaddar’ (2007), we wished more producers saw his talent.

He has since appeared in several movies like ‘Firrkie’ and earns Rs 1-2 crore per movie.


Arshad Warsi – only good as ‘Circuit’?



The iconic character from ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ series, Circuit, has more superhits to his credit as Bollywood’s supporting actor. With films like ‘Ishqiya’ under his belt, he will next be seen in ‘Bhaiaji Superhit’ alongside Sunny Deol.

Arshad Warsi apparently earned Rs. 3-3.5 crore for his appearance in ‘Golmaal Again’ (what, really?)


Bobby Deol – couldn’t match his father’s legacy!



Bobby Deol can best be remembered for ‘Barsaat’, that came out in 1995. The actor was last seen in Salman Khan’s movie, ‘Race 3’.

As per the sources, this Bollywood’s supporting actor took home Rs 7 crore for that (shit) performance in ‘Race 3’!


Anil Kapoor – best suitable for Hollywood!



Another ‘Race 3’ actor Anil Kapoor, 61, has several movies to his credit. After having worked in the industry for (donkey) years, he’s now one of the most sought-after Bollywood’s supporting actor.

Sonam Kapoor‘s father gets a whopping Rs 8-9 crore for a movie appearance!


Tusshar Kapoor – another forgotten star kid!

Just like Bobby, Tusshar couldn’t carry on the legacy of his surname too. Son of veteran actor Jeetendra and younger brother to TV’s most successful producer Ekta Kapoor, Tusshar is most popular for playing Lucky in the ‘Golmaal’ series.

What do you think this Bollywood’s supporting actor charges? Rs 2 crore per film!


Riteish Deshmukh – the new-age villain?




Riteish Deshmukh, who belongs to a popular politician family has acted in many movies like ‘Housefull 3’, ‘Great Grand Masti’, and ‘Bank Chor’ in the last couple of years. However, we can’t recall which was his real last hit except when he donned the villain’s hat in ‘Ek Villain’.

As per sources, Riteish is paid Rs 3-4 crore per film!
