8 Highest Paid Bollywood OTT Stars and their Exorbitant Fees


Bollywood is well-known throughout the world for its outstanding stars. Since its inception, it has produced some well-known performers. As a result, our Bollywood stars have begun to follow the trend of appearing on OTT platforms.

There was a time when the pay disparity between actors on the large and small screens was enormous. With the emergence of OTT, not to mention the growing popularity of OTT services in general, the gap has reduced, albeit it will never be completely closed (and rightly so). Indeed, some actors may argue that OTT has given them a second opportunity or that their audience in cinema has expanded as a result of their online achievement.

Here is a list of the 8 Highest Paid Bollywood OTT Stars and their Exorbitant Fees

  1. Pankaj Tripathi

  1. Saif Ali Khan

Sacred Games, a Netflix Original show featuring Saif Ali Khan, was the actor’s first excursion into the OTT channel. He favors the term “online streaming entertainment” to “web series.” Saif earned Rs. 15 crores for the 8 episodes of the series. This series also assisted him in getting back on track with a great project after his most recent films underperformed at the box office. There have been two seasons of Sacred Games so far. Tandav, Saif’s follow-up to Sacred Games, is a new OTT film. Tandav received mixed reactions from the audience, as it may have offended some citizens’ religious sentiments.

  1. Ali Fazal

Ali Fazal was still a long way from achieving the popularity and acclaim he did after participating in films such as Khamoshiyan and Fukrey. At that moment, Mirzapur stood in his path.
