It's raining fat paychecks for Ranbir Kapoor. There's buzz that the four-film-old Ranbir has gone from being worth a mere 50 lakhs in Saawariya (2007) to a whopping 12 crores for his next film with Imtiaz Ali.
A daily has quoted an industry insider saying that, "Ranbir is already in the top-ten bracket. He is outdoing himself with every new film and his fan base is increasing with every passing day."
The true-blue Kapoor has had two releases this year in Wake Up Sid and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and both have done good business and have received critical acclaim.
Yash Raj's Bachna Ae Haseeno producers readily paid Ranbir Rs 5 crore for a film but now seeing his growing popularity, filmmakers are willing up his asking rate.
Reportedly Kapoor has signed Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision's next to be directed by Imtiaz Ali for Rs 12 crores.
