Kartik Aryan The Highest Paid Actor Of His Generation?



 With his fee  of Rs 35 crores for his ten-day work  in Ram Madhvani’s  terror-thriller Dhamaka Kartik Aryan seems  to have raced far  ahead of his contemporaries . The  actor who was paid  a pittance(Rs 3 lakhs) for his first  film  Pyaar Ka  Punchnaama has indeed  come  a  long way. 

The  35-crore fee  is  according to trade experts staggering for an actor who is only  9 films old.A trade analyst who wants  to remain unnamed  compares Kartik’s career graph  to Akshay Kumar’s.

“They come from a  similar  background.  Punjabi  conservative family  , one son and  daughter. No Bollywood connections .Yet they  both made it  super-big. But  Akshay’s fee after  9 films was nowhere close to Kartik’s  35 crores. In  fact until  Suneel Darshan’s Jaanwar in 1999 Akshay was paid a measly amount. Kartik has bounced to the big league in no time at all, and that too when his initial  films Akash Vani, Kanchi and Guest In London were super-flops,” says  the trade analyst, adding that no leading man of Kartik’s generation  commands  a fee anywhere close.

The turn-around  film in Kartik’s career  was  Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.  Kartik  moved so far ahead  in the film market  that even  his discoverer Luv Ranjan  couldn’t afford to sign Kartik for his  next  and had to opt for Ranbir Kapoor instead.

 What  next for  Kartik?   Sources close  to the actor say money is  not his  criteria for selection. “Eros  Now  offered Kartik   a 3-film deal  for   90 crore rupees. He turned  it down as he didn’t like the  projects. Kartik won’t  sign any films  for just money.  But if it’s something  as exciting as Dhamaka with a reputed director  like Ram  Madhvani, then why not?”  says  a confidant  of  the actor.
