Earlier it was reported that Kartik Aaryan gave producer Sajid Nadiadwala a special discount when he charged a minimum fee of Rs. 15 crores for director Sameer Vidwan’s rom-com starring him and Kiara Advani. And now we have further information on Kartik’s compensation for Shehzada, the remake of Ala Vaikunthapuramloo.
“Kartik is slowly taking the stride to be among the top stars of the industry and his remuneration is the right indication of his rising popularity. The young dynamite has charged a huge sum of Rs. 21 crores for this action-comedy, which is his highest for a single theatrical film till date,” a source told Bollywood Hungama.
“Kartik is flexible to adjust his fees based on the genre and appeal of the film in the market. Since Sajid’s film was required to be made in a certain budget, he was happy to cut down his fees. However, Shehzada is an outright commercial entertainer that can set the box office on fire, and hence, he went ahead with premium charges. The producers were more than happy to accommodate his request given his popularity” the source further told us.
Meanwhile, Kartik Aaryan’s filmography is impressive. Dhamaka, where the Pati Patni Aur Woh actor will be seen sharing screen space with Mrunal Thakur, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, also starring Tabu and Kiara Advani, Freddy, in which the actor will be seen opposite Alaya F, and now Shehzada which will have Kriti Sanon as the leading lady are among the titles in his upcoming lineup that are interesting and exciting.
