Shahid Kapoor's recent release Kabir Singh has crossed Rs. 240 crores at the box office and the film has now become his career's highest grosser. Shahid's performance has been praised by everyone and now every filmmaker wants to rope the actor for their film.
And reportedly post Kabir Singh, Shahid has now hiked his fees. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Shahid hiked his fees to Rs 35 crore per film. If it's true then he will be listed among the highest-paid actors in Bollywood.
Recently Shahid took to his social media handle to share an emotional note for his fans as the film crossed 200 crore mark. He wrote, "Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn’t judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved.
"Indeed indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don’t have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story," the actor further added.
For the unversed, Kabir Singh is the official remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy which starred Vijay Deverakonda in the lead.
