Bollywood is known all over the world for its talented actors. It has spawned some renowned performers since its establishment. As a result, our Hindi actors have begun to follow the current pattern by participating on OTT platforms.

There was a time when the salary gap among performers on the big and small screens was so wide. The gap has shrunk, even though it will never be totally dissolved, with the arrival of OTT, not to speak the increasing popularity of OTT services in total (and rightly so). In fact, some film actors could argue that OTT has given them a second chance or that their market has grown in cinema as a result of their online popularity.

Here is a list of OTT actors, from Jitendra Kumar and Manoj Bajpayee to Pankaj Tripathi and Priyamani, with their exorbitant payments:

1. Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan’s first foray into the OTT platform was Sacred Games, a Netflix Original show starring him. He prefers to call it “online streaming media” rather than “a web series.” Saif took away a whopping Rs. 15 crores for the eight episodes of the show.

This series also helped him get back on track with a strong project after his most recent movies under-performed at the ticket sales. So far, there have been two seasons of Sacred Games.

Saif’s follow-up to Sacred GamesTandav, is a fresh OTT film. Tandav elicited different reviews from the public, as it may have insulted a part of the citizenry’s religious sensibilities.
