No big deal in hiking pay: Rakul Preet Singh

Chennai, Oct 9 (IANS) Actress Rakul Preet Singh, who has emerged as one of the most sought after heroines in Telugu filmdom, says every actor deserves a pay hike and it should be directly proportional to the demand factor.

“If an actor is in demand, then I don’t see the problem in paying him or her more. Everybody deserves a pay hike in their respective jobs and since I’m doing well in my profession, I deserve what I take as remuneration now,” Rakul told IANS.

She’s rumoured to have charged a whopping Rs.1.5 crore for her forthcoming Telugu outing “Bruce Lee: The Fighter”.

Refusing to comment on her pay, she said: “I’m at the peak of my career, so what’s wrong if I charge more? I don’t understand what the big deal about hiking my pay is.”

She currently has Telugu films “Naanaku Prematho” and “Sarainodu” in her kitty.
