Now that she is back to India, Madhuri Dixit again back to acting. Many filmmakers comes to her door but hearing her astounding demand, they backed off. Madhuri Dixit demands Rs 5 crore for a film.
"She has been the most successful actress of her generation and clearly she brings in a brand value no one else does. So clearly that will reflect on the kind of money she charges. Ever since she has moved back to India, she has been approached by a lot of people to star in their films, but she is taking it easy.", says a source.
Madhuri quoting Rs 1 and 3 crore for endorsement deals and charges Rs 4 and 5 crore for her films. Adds the source, "This is the kind of money leading ladies like Kareena, Katrina and even Vidya are charging. So Madhuri clearly wants to let people know that she is no less than any of them and signing her on will be expensive." Says a leading producer on the condition of anonymity, "For Madhuri, even if the budget for my film hits the roof, it's a chance I would take. But yes, you need to be practical too."
Madhuri’s last offering ‘Aaja Nachle’ badly doomed at the box-office. It is heard that Madhuri has been approached by Vidhal Bharadwaj for ‘Ishqiya’ sequel, titled ‘Dekh Ishqiya’. Madhuri quotes money equal to Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra.
