There is no doubt that Varun Dhawan is one of the most successful actors of Hindi cinema today. Ever since he made his acting debut with Karan Johar’s 2012 release Student Of The Year, he has delivered nothing but back-to-back hits at the box-office. And looking at his slate of upcoming movies, we are sure that many blockbusters are in store.
Dhawan, who is presently shooting for Abhishek Verman’s forthcoming directorial venture Kalank, will soon team up with choreographer-turned-filmmaker Remo D’souza for his next film ABCD 3, a sequel to the latter’s successful film franchise ABCD.
Now we have come to learn that after the success of his recent release Sui Dhaaga (2018), Varun has almost doubled his fee. Reportedly, the actor will be taking a fat paycheque of ₹ 21 crores for his role in ABCD3. Now that’s an eye-popping amount of money! Isn’t it?
If Varun is really charging the said amount for the dance-drama movie, it makes him the highest paid actors among the current crop of actors in Bollywood. “Though Sui Dhaaga: Made In India and October (2018) weren’t exact money-spinners, there is no denying that Varun is the most bankable amongst the young crop of actors. The producers have agreed to the amount. This fee places him in a league higher than Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor,” a source reveals.
Also starring Katrina Kaif, ABCD 3 will be shot in 3D and will release in 4D and IMAX format. The makers are planning to commence the shoot in January and prepare the film for a November 2019 release.
Besides Kalank and ABCD 3, Varun Dhawan will also be seen in filmmaker Shashank Khaitan’s next Rannbhoomi which is expected to roll in 2020.
