Days since Karan Johar took direct potshots at actors for their unrealistic price tags, there is a big debate in the film industry on which actors Karan was referring to. In the interview with Anupama Chopra, Karan was heard saying, “They’re all crazy! Crazy, with a capital ‘C’. They’re cuckoo, many of them…Just because their two films do well suddenly it’s all me, myself and I…All these wonderful actors - Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal - I hope they are solid and sensible about their monetary choices.”
Now the world is inferring that the three actors named above have asked for unrealistic amounts of money from Johar. Not just Rajkummar or Ayushmann or Vicky, even Kartik Aaryan is said to have raised his price post the success of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Sources say Ayushmann Khurrana’s new market-rate post the two successes in 2018 (Andha Dhun and Badhaai Ho) is staggering. “Big producers like Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra and Sajid Nadiadwala never discussed money with the biggest of stars. But the new stars first discuss money than the script,” says a producer who approached Vicky Kaushal and fled when he heard the price that was quoted.
