Varun Dhawan hike's his price, it will be Rs 5 crore
Reportedly, “Varun is currently the most commercially viable actors of his generation.
Sources continued, None of his peers have his success ratio. He is a successful solo hero, while his contemporaries like Sidharth Malhotra, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are looking to consolidate their fan base. Ranveer is the closest rival to Varun, and the Bajirao Mastani actor was paid less than his market price for his three films with his mentor Sanjay Leela Bhansali.”
On the other hand, Varun will now get his new swanky price from his mentor Karan.
The source says, “So far, there was no financial arrangement between Varun and his mentor Karan. Varun did Karan’s films at whatever price Karan wanted to pay him. But now, in a film that Varun will do with his mentor in 2018, he will get his new market price.”
If sources to be believed, it is Karan, who has advised the actor to hike his price.
Sources say Varun, who was charging Rs 8 crore last, is now up to Rs 13 crore now. It remains to be seen if his father David Dhawan will pay him that price too. A source close to Varun says, “He’s working on it. Varun is focused almost completely on creating a body work free of failure.”
His next is an unusual love story with director Shoojit Sircar ,called October. The role was first offered to Ranbir Kapoor.
Then Varun has director Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga, where he pairs up with Anushka Sharma for the first time. If October turns out to be Varun’s 10th consecutive hit, he will then be competing not with his contemporaries, but with the Khans of Bollywood.
