While there is constant buzz about actors outdoing each other when it comes to commanding fat fees for their projects, we hear that Sonam Kapoor charged only a meagre R 11 to sign Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next. And that’s apparently because the actress was dying to work with the director again after Delhi 6.
A source says, “Sonam has always been proud of her previous project with the director. She came to be known as the Massakali girl after the film. When Mehra approached her for the Milkha Singh biopic, she refused to charge him anything. Instead the amount of R 11 was like a shagun.”
Insiders say Rakeysh too is quite fond of Sonam and wanted her to be part of his project. A source close to the director says, “Sonam plays an important role. Those who have seen glimpses from the film feel her chemistry with Farhan is great.”
Sonam remained unavailable for comment.
