Rs. 1.25 crore for a child artist.
Unbelievable? May be until a few years ago this amount would have seemed astronomical.
The most famous child actor of India Darsheel Safary is the little guy who is heard to be charging Rs.1.25 crore to be part of new projects.
Some days back there were reports of film maker Ajay Monga planning a flick with Darsheel handling the lead role.
The future of Ajay’s movie is in jeopardy now due to Darsheel acting fees.
Mr. Monga says that when the budget of his film is only Rs. 1.5 crore, how he can think of giving Darsheel Rs. 1.25 crore.
Though the global financial recession has caused some damage in B-Town, everyone will agree that when compared to earlier times, the film industry has become extremely rich.
It seems that Darsheel decided to adopt a high price after learning about the big stars whose pay packet per film runs into crores.
After all when popularity and adulation is concerned, Darsheel although only one film old is also rated nothing less than a star.
And if there is this general conception that today Bollywood in terms of production and marketing is increasingly going the Hollywood way, there is no need to get surprised hearing the Kid actor’s fees.
