Varun Dhawan made his Bollywood debut with Karan Johar‘s Student Of The Year back in 2012 and has come a long way since then. He has continuously proved his mettle and has only gotten stronger with each film. His last film Judwaa 2 did incredibly well at the box office and provided some relief to Bollywood after the string of flops we’ve had this year. In fact, he’s been the only actor to have given hits back-to-back right from his debut, making him the most bankable star amongst the current crop of actors.

According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, Varun has now upped his fee by Rs. 5 Crores. A source told the daily,

Varun is currently the most commercially viable actors of his generation. None of his peers have his success ratio. He is a successful solo hero, while his contemporaries like Sidharth Malhotra, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are looking to consolidate their fan base. Ranveer is the closest rival to Varun, and the Bajirao Mastani actor was paid less than his market price for his three films with his mentor Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

And guess who has been responsible for this fee hike? His mentor Karan Johar! The source added,

So far, there was no financial arrangement between Varun and his mentor Karan. Varun did Karan’s films at whatever price Karan wanted to pay him. But now, in a film that Varun will do with his mentor in 2018, the Judwaa 2 actor will get his new market price.
Karan reportedly suggested that Varun hike his price, after which he changed his fee from Rs. 8 Crores to now Rs. 13 Crores.  Now that’s quite something isn’t it? He totally deserves it after putting in all that hard work! On the work front, he will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar‘s film titled October.
