IPL 2018: Ranveer Singh to get Rs 5 crore for 15 minutes act

Ranveer Singh turned one of Bollywood’s most bankable actor. The ‘Padmavaat’ actor will be paid Rs 5 crore for 15-minute performance in IPL 21018. The actor will be performing at the opening ceremony.

“He will be shaking a leg for about 15 minutes, but the organising team was always clear that they wanted Ranveer as a performer, and that’s why he has been offered such a huge amount,” an insider close to the development told the daily.

“His appeal cuts across cities, age-groups and has an equally big fan following among men and women. That’s why the organisers felt that he is the perfect fit for the performance at this year’s IPL opening ceremony. The organisers are extremely happy that Ranveer has given his nod for the event,” said the insider.

“Going by his past performances, he wants to give audiences a breath-taking performance and so, he is taking time out of his extremely busy schedule to start rehearsals for the same. He is currently busy shooting for Gully Boy and also prepping for ‘Simmba’ but has decided to balance out time for his performance’s rehearsals as well as other professional commitments,” added the insider.

On the work front, Ranveer will be next seen in Zoya Akhtar's musical drama 'Gully Boy' alongside Alia Bhatt. 

The film is slated to release on February 14, 2019.
