Ajay Devgn has reportedly increased his price to Rs. 1 crore rupees per day.
The 43-year-old actor, who is on cloud nine these days after the astonishing success of his latest comedy Bol Bachchan, demanded Rs. 7 crore from a leading producer-director who wants Devgn for a 7-day shooting for a cameo.
“I was told he would charge me Rs. 7 crores, 1 crore per day. That’s Ajay’s new price range. He doesn’t charge for the entire film. He now takes home his remuneration on a day-to-day basis,” the director-producer said.
