Imran Khan gets Rs 11 crore for his next film?
Recent rumours suggest that the actor has been paid Rs 11 crore for the sequel of Once Upon a Time In Mumbaai, in which he’s playing the role of a young don. Now if that’s true, it’s time for the Khan kid to celebrate as he gets inducted into Bollywood’s fat paycheck club
Looks like Imran Khan finally realised that it’s time for him to rake in the moolah, just like his contemporary Ranbir Kapoor is doing. Ranbir increased his price right after Rockstar and apparently demands nothing less than Rs 25 crore these days. The recent buzz doing the rounds is that Imran is being paid such a gigantic amount ‘coz directors have started to consider him a bankable star. And we couldn’t agree more, considering the actor has quite successfully struck a chord with people with movies like Delhi Belly, Jaane Tu…and many more. And even though he may not be a great actor, we are sure his movies are churning out a decent amount of profit or else he wouldn’t be working with directors like Milan Luthria and Vishal Bhardwaj today.
As Imran climbs the ladder slowly and steadily, we suggest he tries to seek inspiration from mamu jaan Aamir Khan’s thespian skills. After all, it’s his performances that will decide if actors like him are a dime a dozen or not, and not his bank balance.
