Actor Kangana Ranaut shot back at claims that she has hiked her fees to Rs. 15 crore, saying no one should be bothered about how much she charges for a film.
There have been reports that the three-time National Award-winner is demanding Rs. 15 crore per film now, leaving her producers in a fix. When asked about the rumours, a defensive Kangana neither confirmed nor denied the speculation. “How much I charge is no one’s business. It is only for me to know,” the 29-year-old actor told reporters here.
If Kangana at all gets paid the staggering amount for her next project, it will make her the highest-paid Indian female actor dethroning her contemporary Deepika Padukone, who earned the title after charging Rs. 12 crore for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus Padmavati. Currently, Kangana has three projects in the pipeline — Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, Hansal Mehta’s Simran and Ketan Mehta’s Rani Lakshmi Bai.
