With changing times, the medium of entertainment has also changed. Now people are preferring to watch movies and web series sitting at home rather than going to theatres. These web series have given the audience a new option of entertainment which is fantastic. In such a situation, if we talk about the budget of web series, it is often said that the budget of films is more than that of web series and serials. Web series make a lot of impressions not only on local but also on global scale. But there are some web series on which the producer has invested a lot of money. Talking about India’s most expensive OTT web series, its budget is more than Shahrukh Khan’s recent film Donkey and Ranbir Kapoor’s film Animal. Let us tell you which is the most expensive web series of India in terms of budget. But know this, this is not Mirzapur or fake.
India’s most expensive web series
Talking about India’s most expensive OTT web series, it is Ajay Devgan’s web series. Its name is Rudra – The Age of Darkness. Let us tell you that more than Rs 200 crore has been spent in making this web series. Due to this web series, a record has also been set in the name of Ajay Devgan. He has become the highest paid actor on the OTT platform. Ajay Devgan has been paid a fee of Rs 125 crore for six episodes of this web series. Talking about Rudra – The Age of Darkness, it is a psychological crime thriller web series which is based on the British web series Luther. Apart from Ajay Devgan, Aisha Deol, Rashi Khanna, Atul Kulkarni, Ashwini Kaleskar, Tarun Gehlot and Ashish Vidyarthi are in important roles in this web series.
Beat big budget films
When compared to Rudra – The Age of Darkness, OTT’s superhit web series Saif Ali Khan’s Sacred Games is made on a very low budget. The total budget of the first season of Sacred Games was 40 crores and this series was a superhit. After the first season was a hit, its second season was made and its total budget was Rs 100 crore. The budget of superhit web series Made in Heaven and Anil Kapoor’s web series 24 has also been around Rs 100 crores. The budget of Manoj Bajpayee’s superhit series Family Man, Shahid Kapoor’s series Farzi and Ali Fazal’s Mirzapur also does not come close to Rudra – The Age of Darkness. Rudra – The Age of Darkness has not only beaten the budget of the web series, it has also beaten Shahrukh Khan’s film Donkey (Budget 120 crore), Ranbir Kapoor’s film Animal (Production Budget 100 crore) and Sunny Deol’s last year’s superhit film. Gadar 2 has also been left behind. Let us tell you that the budget of Gadar 2, which is a huge earner, is only Rs 60 crores.
