Hence, it is now being reported that Singh that over and above his remuneration, the actor might be given a percentage of profit earned by producers of his future films.
Ranveer Singh delivered two Rs 200 crore blockbusters in 2018, with Padmaavat collecting Rs 282.28 crore and Simmba earning Rs 240.10 crore. DNA has reported that post the back-to-back box office successes of his last two films, Ranveer Singh's equity has seen a 'meteoric rise'.
