Varun Dhawan has apparently been offered a staggering Rs. 33 crore to participate in the ‘Street Dancer 3D’ project, despite the mediocre reception of ‘Kalank’.
It is clear now that the poor reception of Dhawan’s most recent project has had no real bearing on his value as a superstar actor, since Remo D’Souza has green-lighted the appointment of Dhawan for the exciting upcoming dance film.
A source has told news portal Times Now, “Varun is clearly going to be one of the highest-paid actors from the younger generation. He is being paid to the tune of Rs 33 crore for Street Dancer 3D. The call was taken keeping his satellite reach in mind. His films usually work tremendously well on TV and the makers are also reaping huge benefits of the same.”
Continuing, the source revealed, “They plan to sell the satellite rights to a leading channel for an unbelievable price and the channel is okay with it because Varun promises great viewership on the small screen too. The actor has got a signing amount of Rs 10-11 crore and the remaining remuneration will be given to him from the money the producers make from the satellite and digital rights”.
