Varun Dhawan reportedly slashed his fee for his next film ‘October’ helmed by Shoojit Sircar.
According to Mid-Day, Dhawan was keen to work in the film and thus did not want any budget issues, thus he reduced his going fee.
A source said, “When Shoojit approached him with the script, he made it clear that it would be another small-budget film, along the lines of what he is known to make. Varun was quite taken by the story and knew that he had to be a part of the project. He readily agreed to cut down his fee for the director.”
A trade insider added, “If you see his filmography, he has consciously mixed the masala fare with films like Badlapur (2015) and now, October. Varun understood that October needs to be made on the right budget to be viable and recover its cost. Since the film was envisioned on a budget of R20 crore, he slashed his fee by more than 50 per cent.”
