Gangubai Kathiawadi is a real-life story of a matriarch played by Alia Bhatt. While Alia Bhatt plays the titular role in the film, it also stars Ajay Devgn in a cameo role alongside being a debut film for Shantanu Maheshwari.

Can you guess how much Alia Bhatt got paid for the film? And Ajay Devgn? As per reports, Alia charged ₹20 crore for the film. Which is fine considering she is the lead actor who carried the movie all by herself. What is shocking is that Ajay Devgn charged ₹11 crore for his extended cameo role in the film.

The amount charged by Ajay Devgn is more than half of what Alia Bhatt got for playing the lead.

Ajay Devgn plays the role of Karim Lala, a mafia don, in Gangubai Kathiawadi. He protects Gangu as a brother and appears in the film a few times.
