He is the most sought after star in Bollywood and if remunerations are anything to go by Ranbir Kapoor might soon outdo the Khans. Producers are willing to pay anything to get him on-board considering the mass appeal he has among the young crowd. There is buzz in the tinsel town that director Imtiaz Ali has signed Ranbir for a whopping amount Rs. 12 Crores. The movie will be produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision and will hit the floors early next year.
Ranbir is already in the top five pay bracket in the industry and his price stands only next to Akshay. Considering Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan take a share of the profit they don't have such high signing amounts while Salman Khan's box office success has dented his remunerations. Ranbir is outdoing himself with every new film, starting with Rs 50 lakhs for Saawariya he pocketed Rs 5 crores for Bachna Ae Haseeno. He was paid Rs 8 Crores each for Wake Up Sid and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani.
Well all we can say is that the 'Kapoor Khandan ka Chirag' has come off age just two years since making his debut in Saawariya. Along with Kareena Kapoor, Ranbir is ensuring that the first family of Bollywood still stays at the pinnacle.
