Emraan Hashmi hikes his fee to 10 Crores
Emraan Hashmi who is better known as Bollywood Serial Kisser is right now passing through the best phase of his career. After doing two successful films “Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai” and “The Dirty Picture” with Balaji Motion Pictures, Emraan is now in high demand by the biggest production houses of Bollywood.
Despite being one of the most sought after and hit actor in Bollywood, Emraan Hashmi doesn’t believe in hiking his price. Now, after "The Dirty Picture" becoming a superhit, Ajay has finally decided to demand an increase in his fee. The buzz is that Emraan has quoted Rs 10 crore for all the fresh projects.
Rumor mills say that the three Khans - Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir—charge about Rs 27-28 crore a film, besides taking a share in the profits. Also, A-listers like Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgn charge somewhere about Rs 20 crore per film while Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor are believed to charge around Rs 10 crore. Now Emraan may also join them.
“I have increased my rate but I cannot tell you the exact figure. It is a safe price, it is not a crazy price. I have worked in the office of a producer, so I know what happens when they (actors) overprice. So I know what that price should be and it keeps me in the industry for a long haul,” Emraan told reporters here last night, after unveiling the first of his upcoming film, ‘Shanghai’.
“I think as an actor I feel my rate should not burden the film. There are few actors, who charge more and then eventually it burdens the film, but I will never do that,” the 32-year-old actor said.
Emraan Hashmi has three releases lined up for this year, Mahesh Bhatt’s crime thriller, ‘Jannat 2’ (May 4), Dibakar Banerjee’s political thriller ‘Shanghai’ (June 8) and Vikram Bhatt’s 3D horror film, ‘Raaz 3’ (August 31).
