Shahid Kapoor Increase His Fees By 5 Crores Despite Jersey Failure?

After almost two years of ‘Kabir Singh’, Shahid Kapoor made a comeback in the film industry with ‘Jersey’. Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey was released on 22 April 2022 in the Indian Hindi language based on a Sports Drama film. Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ is the remake of a Telugu film with the same title ‘Jersey’ which was released on 19 April 2019. Shahid Kapoor’s movie ‘Jersey’ came out as a major flop. The movie failed to attract an audience and collected worldwide ₹27.12 crores at the box office which is not even close to its budget of ₹95 crores.

Jersey’s Cast is as follows:

  • Shahid Kapoor as Arjun Talwar
  • Mrunal Thakur as Vidya Rao Talwar (Arjun’s wife) 
  • Pankaj Kapur as Baali (Arjun’s Coach) 
  • Anjum Batra as Amrit (Arjun’s friend) 
  • Rituraj Singh as Mahesh Karmarkar (Mumbai Coach) 
  • Vinay Varma as Krishna Rao (Vidhya’s Dad) 
  • Geetika Mehandru as Jasleen Shergill
  • Rudrashish Majumdar as Rudra Juneja
  • Written by: Gowtam Tinnanuri
  • Directed by: Gowtam Tinnanuri
  • Edited by: Navin Nooli

Despite ‘Jersey’ failure, Shahid Kapoor Increased his fees by 5 crores for a project offered to him. Shahid Kapoor has demanded a total of ₹38 crores for a single project. Shahid has charged up to ₹33 crores for ‘Jersey’. Though, It’s not confirmed by the actor yet. Maybe, Shahid increases the fee for the next new project.

During a film promotion of Jersey, he was asked about Increment in his honorarium, and he replied, “It is our job that we should ask for money for our work. If the film’s producer thinks that your work is so good, he will pay you the same fee, otherwise, you will not get the job. Nowadays, rickshaw pullers are also increasing fares. There is nothing wrong with that”. Shahid also has upcoming huge films. One of them is ‘Fakes’ which is renamed as ‘Farzi’ now which is directed by ‘Raj and DK’ and is a web series and another one is ‘Bloody Daddy’ which is directed by ‘Ali Abbas Zafar’. It is not confirmed from which director Shahid Kapoor has asked for the hike payment by ₹5 crores.

Shahid is a hugely talented, brilliant actor who gives his 100% to every role he plays. If he demands a hike for his work, it should be paid for it and will be worthwhile.
