Earlier it was reported that Rajkummar Rao and Huma Qureshi has been roped in for Sriram Raghavan’s production ‘Monica, Oh My Darling’ for Netflix.
It seems Rajkummar’s stars are in favour of the actor. The actor is giving back to back successful films and has become the first choice of almost every filmmaker. According to the reports, the actor apparently charged Rs. 15 cr for the film.
“Since making his debut in 2010, Rajkummar Rao has come a really long way. Now after receiving critical acclaim for his performances and with his films being well received, Rajkummar has managed to break away from being categorized as a tier two star. In fact, post his recent release Roohi, and of course his previous Netflix film The White Tiger, Rao has become a name to contend with. Thanks to his new found place within the industry, Rajkummar has hiked his fee and is now charging a whopping Rs. 15 cr for Monica, Oh My Darling,” a source was quoted as saying by an entertainment website.
However, we don’t have any official confirmation about the fee hike yet. Besides Monica, Oh My Darling, Rajkummar’s hands are full with multiple projects including Hum Do Hamare Do and Badhaai Do.
Meanwhile, Monica, Oh My Darling is directed by Vasan Bala, who made the critically acclaimed film Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, and produced by Sriram Raghavan and Sanjay Routray under Matchbox Pictures banner and is currently in the pre-production stage.
