Ranveer Singh is an actor who has shown he can fit into a wide variety of characters, having worked with some of Indian cinema’s best filmmakers. It seems he has placed himself in a rather unique position in the industry that he can now demand a share of the profits his upcoming films make rather than charge a fee.
“Ranveer is no longer the heir apparent. He is the superstar of this generation as his track record of delivering blockbusters show. And he has been delivered blockbusters consistently. Post Padmaavat, which saw his performance propel the film to shatter several box office records, Ranveer’s equity has seen a meteoric rise. A first choice of producers and directors, Ranveer now has a substantial pie of the profits and filmmakers are sweetening the deal for him by offering him a big margin,” said a source, as reported by Filmfare.
The source went on to say that Singh’s story is quite extraordinary, “Ranveer’s on top form with back to back blockbusters and from Simmba he has been getting a major percentage of profit share. Kabir Khan’s 83 has a big profit percentage carved out for Ranveer. In fact, for all films going forward, Ranveer will have profit share chalked out for him. Only the big superstars of our times have been able to command this status and Ranveer has reached this place in just eight years. It’s an incredible success story”.
Singh was seen last in ‘Gully Boy’ which released last week.
