Flop Actor runs a business empire worth Rs 2500 crores: Films are a multi-million dollar business and this is the reason why millions of youth dream of entering this glamor industry. Generally, big films in India have now started earning more than Rs 100 to 1000 crores on a regular basis and the lead stars as the faces of those films charge fees of tens of crores. Naturally they compete with even big businessmen. A star’s wealth is largely linked to his success at the box office. But there are some actors in the country who are in the flop list but still they are among the richest actors of the country. Here we are telling you about the same legend actor who did not give a single hit yet he is the owner of property worth crores.
Saravanan Arul, better known as Legend Saravanan, has acted in only one film so far, which is named The Legend. Directed by JD-Jerry, the film also featured Urvashi Rautela, Vivek, Yogi Babu, Suman, Nassar and Vijaykumar. The film was also extensively promoted in the presence of some famous celebrities and was made on a big scale.
The film The Legend, released in 2022, was made at a cost of Rs 45 crore but it proved to be a major disaster at the box office. Neither the story of the film nor its star cast was liked. Saravanan debuted on the film screen at the age of 54 with Legend but it flopped miserably. The film may not have worked but through this, Saravanan has remained in the public eye, he has recently introduced a new look and there is speculation that he may soon make a comeback on the big screen.
Since Saravanan himself is a big businessman and he can produce his own films. He had also made The Legend under the banner of his company (The Legend New Saravana Stores), hence he had to bear the brunt of its flop. Now the thing to note is that if Saravanan has not earned his money through cinema, then how is he among the richest actors of India? The answer lies in how Saravanan became a film star.
The 54-year-old new legend is the owner of Saravana Stores, a popular shopping complex chain in the south. The company achieved a turnover of Rs 2500 crore in the financial year 2021-22, making it one of the largest in its segment in the country. The company also produced Saravanan’s debut film The Legend which was released in theaters in 2022. Courtesy of his highly successful business empire, Saravanan’s net worth is estimated to be around Rs 150 to 200 crores.
The businessman and actor has a collection of many fine luxury cars. There are many luxury and amazing sports cars in his garage. He owns not one but three Rolls-Royce sedans, the most by any actor in India. Apart from these, he also owns Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari 488, Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin DB11, Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Flying Spur and Porsche 911 Turbo S. According to several reports, his luxury car collection is the largest among all the actors, even more than the three Khans, Allu Arjun or Rajinikanth.
