The closure of theaters due to the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant boom in the world of OTT over the past 2-3 years. Big superstars like Ajay Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sonakshi Sinha, and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are actively seeking good scripts to capitalize on India's popular OTT platforms such as Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, and ZEE5. The increasing popularity of OTT platforms is resulting in many artists charging handsome fees for their appearances. Some superstars are earning crores of rupees through their OTT shows as a result.

Today, we will discuss the actor commanding the highest fees on OTT platforms. That actor is none other than Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgan, who entered the OTT scene in 2022 with Hotstar's crime thriller show 'Rudra: The Edge of Darkness'.
