The media had started calling him a star! No wonder, Ranbir Kapoor, who has delivered a blockbuster like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani this year, has hiked his price, and has been demanding quite a hefty amount.
If reports are to be believed, Ranbir Kapoor charged a whopping Rs 20 crore for his Besharam. Even though the movie couldn’t lure the audiences at the box office, Ranbir got what he asked for.
It’s being said that Ranbir Kapoor was contemplating a fee hike for a while, and after the success of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, he decided to take a call. His next after YJHD was Abhinav Kashyap’s film, and he approximately charged Rs 20 crore-plus.
There is no doubt that Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani proved to be a milestone in Ranbir’s career. “Ayan Mukerji’s 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' did very well at the ticket windows, prompting Ranbir to decide to raise his asking amount. He finally decided to hike it by 50 per cent,” a source is quoted as saying.
Reportedly, the star is also charging 20 crore for his brief role in Roy, a thriller directed by his close friend Vicky Singh.
