Movies working or not working at the box office are completely in the hands of the fans. No matter which superstar is headlining the movie, it will surely tank at the box office if it fails to entice the audience. Similarly, recently, movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Liger, Shamshera, Samrat Prithviraj and many more have failed to create magic at the box office, despite the movies being headlined by superstars.

Speaking of which, there was a time when superstars like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and more returned the money. Just recently there were reports stating that Vijay Deverakonda had to return a whopping amount to the producers after the Liger failure at the box office. However, the reports are not confirmed. We made a list of the actors who have reportedly returned the money to the producers or the distributors after their movies turned out to be box office flops as compensation.

From Shah Rukh Khan to Vijay Deverakonda, here’s a list of actors who reportedly refunded their acting fees after their movies became flops.

1. Aamir Khan:

According to the reports, Aamir had to pay back some amount of his acting fees to the producers after Laal Singh Chaddha failed to create box office records. However, later, the CEO of Viacom 18, Ajit Andhare, denied all rumours about compensation for losses in an interview. He said, “There are no external distributors, it’s being distributed by V18Studios, and no money is lost in the first place. Film is still running in theatres, both in India & internationally. This is baseless speculation.
