Varun Dhawan Ups His Price by Rs 5 Crores!

Varun Dhawan

Inflation is  for losers. For  the successful, the sky is  the limit. Varun Dhawan  proves it. With a track-record of  only hits to his credit since his debut in his mentor Karan Johar’svStudent  Of The Year, and with two superhits this year Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya and Judwa 2 taking his career to a new high, Varun Dhawan has   much reason to rejoice.

Taking  his  stardom to new level of celebration Varun Dhawan has upped  his price  apparently by a good Rs 5 crores.

A source  close  to the actor says, “Varun is  currently the most commercially advantaged  actor  of his generation. None  of his peers have his blameless  success ratio. He is  a star going on  to  superstar , and successful as a solo hero while his contempories like SiddharthMalhotra, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are looking to consolidate their  fan base. Ranveer  is  the closest rival to Varun. And  Ranveer was paid less than his market price for his three films with his mentor Sanjay Leela  Bhansali.”

Varun, on the other hand, will now get his new swanky price  from his  mentor Karan  Johar.

Says  the source, “So far there was  no financial arrangement between Varun and his  mentorKaran  Johar. Varun  did  Karan’s films at whatever price Karan wanted to pay him. But now in a   film that Varun  will do with his mentor in 2018,  Varun will get his full market price. His  NEW market price.”

Apparently it is Karan Johar who has advised his Student Of  The Cheer to  up his  price. Sources say Varun  who was charging Rs 8 crores last is now  up to 13 crores now.

It remains  to be seen  his father David Dhawan  will pay him that price.

Laughs a  source close to Varun, “He’s  working  on  it. He has quit all distractions. Varun is focused almost completely on creating a body work  free  of  failure.”

His next  is  an unusual love story with director Shoojit Sircar called October. The  role was  first  offered to Ranbir Kapoor who has fallen out of the rat race.But that’s another story. Then Varun has  the  Dum Lagake Haisha  director Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga where he  pairs  up with Anushka Sharma for  the  first time.If October turn  out to be Varun’s  10th  consecutive  hit then he will be competing not with his contemporaries  but with the Khans.

And  Saif  is  not included.
