Actually, in the show, during the shooting of his film ‘Jani Dushman’, Akshay Kumar was sharing the story of getting paid on a per day basis. During this, Akshay asked Samantha if she knows what is the meaning of Per Day Payment? Then Samantha replied vehemently, “Your per day fee can be my entire salary. I know this very well, it can also be the entire budget of one of my films.
