Amitabh Bachchan demands bonus from Shah Rukh Khan for giving a hit to Red Chillies
New Delhi : Jokingly, Amitabh Bachchan demanded a bonus from his Badla producer, Shah Rukh Khan, after the film achieved commercial success on the box office.
Taking to Twitter, Amitabh gave the example of how if a company achieves its goals, or eclipses them, it hands out bonuses to its staff. “So, where’s my bonus?” Amitabh asked Shah Rukh.

Amitabh Bachchan was replying to a tweet by Shah Rukh Khan, where he claimed that the film got success only because of Big B.
Amitabh had earlier noted in a tweet that the film’s box office success had been ignored by the industry. “About time someone started talking about this silent success !! Because neither the producer, nor the distributor, nor the on line producer, or any else in the industry, in general, has even spent a nano second to compliment the success of this film Badla.”
Badla has made over Rs 86 crore in its theatrical run, and has been declared a ‘super hit’ by trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film was produced on a reported budget of Rs 10 crore and is directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
There are many hits in Shah Rukh’s career, Amitabh had written, “but for this budget and this return, (Badla is) one of the biggest.”
