Here’s why Akshay Kumar reduced his fees for Welcome 3 and Hera Pheri 3

A source cited by a news portal confirmed the news and revealed how OMG 2 actor will be sharing the profits of the films. The source stated, “Akshay knew that Firoz Nadiadwala isn’t in the best of financial condition, however, was very well aware that the basic idea of Welcome 3 and Hera Pheri 3 have potential to emerge as a humongous blockbuster. To start with, he first decided to completely sacrifice his fees, and entered into a profit-sharing model with Firoz Nadiadwala on entire revenue. Firoz wanted to retain the IP, and hence he has complete control over the IP, however, he will be sharing revenue with Akshay in a pre-decided ratio.”
