India’s most loved sportsman makes a lot more than most CEOs of Indian

down, his three-year contract for endorsements is worth Rs 180 crores. He
is also paid Rs 2,35,000 for a five-day test match and Rs 2,50,000 for one

1990s, he served as scientific adviser to the government, and his prominent
role in India ‘s 1998 nuclear weapons tests established Kalam as a national

per cent over his previous year’s earnings. He makes not less than Rs 413
per minute.
