Bollywood's charming actor Kartik Aaryan is currently basking in the success of his latest release Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 that released on May 20, has been performing wonderfully at the box office. It also received amazing reviews. As per latest reports, the gross box office collection is Rs ₹ 109.92 crores, making it Kartik Aaryan's biggest opener to date.
Kartik's popularity is indeed on a rise, so as claimed by the reports, the star seems to have decided to hike his fee after the film’s phenomenal success at the box office.
According to the Bollywood Life report, Kartik earlier charged Rs 15-20 crore as his remuneration per movie. But now the star is reportedly charging Rs 35-40 crore per film. The amount is double or more than double his previous remuneration.
However, Kartik later clarified that the reports were baseless. Retweeting Bollywood Life's report, Kartik said, "Promotion hua hai life mein
Increment nahi 😂Baseless (I have got a promotion in life, not an increment. Baseless)."
