Ayushmann Khurrana has established himself as a bankable actor, after delivering back-to-back hits (Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho and Article 15) and winning a National Award.
And looks like the actor is planning to cash in on this success.
According to media reports, Ayushmann has hiked his fees for television commercials, and has charged a stunning Rs. 3.5cr for an advertisement about a security solutions brand.
As per Mid-Day, Ayushmann's hiked fees is almost triple the amount he was charging so far.
Earlier, the 34-year-old used to charge Rs. 90 lakh to Rs. 1 crore for an advertisement.
However, post his National Award win, he chose not to settle below Rs. 3.5cr, when approached for being the brand's face.
Interestingly, the company has already agreed to his demands.
The Vicky Donor actor has already shot for the commercial at a bungalow in Malabar Hills. Given his recent fee hike for commercials, it won't be surprising if Ayushmann increases his quote for the upcoming projects as well. And let's admit, it's a well-deserved demand.
Meanwhile, Ayushmann is gearing up for his second release of the year, Dream Girl.
The actor, who was last seen in Article 15, plays the role of a small-town guy whose ability to speak in a female voice leads to hilarious situations.
Apparently, he has dubbed 25% of the dialogs in a woman's voice.
The film will see a release on September 13, 2019.
On the other hand, Ayushmann will also be seen in an upcoming sequel to his 2017 release, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
Titled as Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the movie will be a gay comedy and will be helmed by Aanand L. Rai.
Besides, there are reports about a sequel to his 2018 release Badhaai Ho, which also features Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Sanya Malhotra.
