Days since Karan Johar took direct potshots at actors for their unrealistic price tags, there is a big debate in the film industry on which actors Karan was referring to.
In the interview with Anupama Chopra , Karan was heard saying, “They’re all crazy! Crazy, with a capital ‘C’. They’re cuckoo, many of them…Just because their two films do well suddenly it’s all me, myself and I…. All these wonderful actors; Rajkummar Rao andAyushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal; I hope they are solid and sensible about their monetary choices.”
Now the world is inferring that the three actors named above have asked for unrealistic amounts of money from Johar.
A close friend of Karan’s reveals, “It’s not about Rajkummar or Ayushmann or Vicky, though all three have hiked their remuneration unrealistically. But it was Kartik Aryan’s team which asked for some amount that sent Karan staggering.”
With just one success behind him Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Kartik has apparently hiked his remuneration to seven times what it used to be. Apparently,Kartik turned down a lead role in Karan Johar’s Good News for remunerative reasons leaving Karan fuming anger.
Sources say Ayushmann Khurrana’s new market rate post the two successes in 2018(AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho) is staggering.
“Big producers like Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra and Sajid Nadiadwala never discussed money with the biggest of stars. But the new stars first discuss money then the script,” says a producer who approached Vicky Kaushal , and fled when he heard the price that was quoted.
