Kartik Aaryan remains to be a firm choice with the number of upcoming films he’s got lined up, but this popularity comes at a price for film makers. Recently it has come to light how much Aaryan’s acting fees were for Sajid Nadiadwala’s next.

A source said, “It’s a simple love story, required to be made on a certain budget. Sajid and his team were clear on getting the best of technicians on board the film, with ample of emphasis on the music. At first, Kartik quoted amount in the range of Rs. 18 crore, however, finally settled at Rs. 15 crores basis the request by the producer.”
The source further added, “Sajid Nadiadwala is among the most successful producers of Bollywood and Kartik is looking for a long term association with Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. If the yet untitled rom com is a smooth journey, expect many more collaborations between the two. The amount charged by Kartik is below his current market value, but he understands the economics and was willing to do it for greater interest of the film.”
The film is slated to go on floors by the end of the year. Both Aaryan and Advani will be next seen in ‘Bhool Bhuliayaa 2’ which is due to release in November.
