Yes, according to reports, Rajkummar Rao has decided to increase his fee for his upcoming role in hit filmmaker Luv Ranjan’s next film. Reportedly, the untitled film is an official remake of the 1975 classic Chupke Chupke, originally starring Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan.

“Raj has been paid to the tune of Rs. 9 crores for Chupke Chupke, which is also by far the highest he has received. But he totally deserves it,” a popular entertainment portal quotes a source as saying.

Though nothing much is known about the forthcoming project at the moment, some industry insiders reveal that Rao has been finalized to play the same role which legendary actor Dharmendra played in the original.

“Luv has been planning the film for some time now. The whole essence and storyline will remain almost the same, with a few additions in terms of the style,” another source informs the portal.

“It is being made to suit the modern era and Raj has been locked to play Dharmendra’s role from the original. They are on the hunt for the other lead cast but as of now, only initial talks have happened with a few A-list actors,” the source concludes.
