Recently, an entertainment portal claimed that Shahid Kapoor has been offered whopping amount of 100 Crore for a Netflix project. Turned out, it was a hoax. As per a Bollywood Hungama report, a source from Netflix claimed, “Netflix has struck no such deal with Shahid Kapoor. The amount mentioned (Rs. 100 crores) is preposterous for any star, no matter how big." As per the Netflix insiders, the platform's aim is to break the Bollywood star system, not add to it. Netflix believes the director is the star of the show, be it the big or the small screen, claimed the source.
