MUMBAI: After Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani set the cash registers ringing at the box office, Ranbir Kapoor has reached a new high and so has his remuneration.
According to sources, the actor who shot a 100-day schedule of Abhinav Kashyap’s Besharam for Rs 15 crore has charged the same amount from his close friend and debutante director Vicky Singh for a just a 42-day schedule of Roy.
A source close to the film confirmed and said: “Roy is a two hero film. It has Arjun Rampal alongside Ranbir. But yes, Ranbir has charged his regular fee of Rs15 crore for the film.”
Mumbai Mirror had earlier reported (Nov 17, 2011) that after the success of Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, the actor, who had signed Anurag Basu’s Barfi! and Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani for Rs eight crore, was planning to up his price to a whopping Rs 15 crore per film. At present, Ranbir also commands a percentage share of the profits his films make.
