The IPL season is almost here and we sure are ready for a lot of action on the Cricket field with a side of glamour & glitz. The season officially kickstarts on April 7, and we hear that the opening night is gonna be a starry one, with high-octane performances by Bollywood stars – Varun Dhawan, Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez.
A while ago, reports were doing the rounds that Ranveer is the highest paid performer at the event, but it’s actually Varun who is getting the heavier pay cheque. DNA quoted a source saying:
Recently, there were reports that Ranveer has been given around Rs 5 crore for his IPL act. But the organisers have paid Varun much more and he’s the highest paid of the lot this year. His fee is somewhere close to Rs 6 crore, although the exact figure isn’t known.
The reason Varun’s remuneration is higher than Ranveer’s is due to his popularity with the masses. The source also said that he has a number of chartbusters to perform, including hit songs from his recent movies, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2. He & Jacqueline also might perform to a few songs together.
Looking forward to watch the IPL ceremony, like every other year!
