After tasting success with his recent release of Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’, Varun Dhawan is now all set to star in Remo D’Souza’s untitled dance film alongside with Katrina Kaif. And the rumour has it, with back-to-back movie success, and mass appeal has handed Varun Dhawan a deal of Rs 32 crore for the upcoming film.
According to DNA report, Varun is getting a whopping amount of Rs 32 crore for his next film which teams up with Katrina Kaif. The film is being directed by Remo D’Souza with whom he had earlier worked with the actor in ‘ABCD 2’. The source quoted saying, “Varun has been lapped up for a staggering price for the dance film in which he teams up with Katrina Kaif. He will reportedly be paid Rs 32 cr!”
Interesting to note, Varun has till now featured in 10 films all of which have been successful at the box office. Though all were not superhit but some did decent such as ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Dishoom’. While Katrina has starred in twice the number of films than Varun, some of which were extremely successful while others failed at the box office. Katrina last starred in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ which earned over Rs. 300 crore.
Meanwhile, talking about the pay-gap, several B-town female actors are challenging it by taking some niche role like Deepika Padukone who was paid more than Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in ‘Padmaavat’. She was also reportedly paid more than Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Piku’.
