For brand shoots, the payment is normally per day. For brand shoots Deepika charges 1-5 crore for a day. But 8 crore seems a bit high as only Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Ranbir Kapoor You Won’t command that kind of fee for endorsements.
Among sportsmen MS Dhoni and now Virat Kohli charge close to this amount. The source also added saying that” When Deepika‘s team asked for the amount they weren’t sure if they would get it. But they constantly have to up the star’s price according to the market value and Deepika has had a fantastic year with Piku and Bajirao Mastani so she is in a position to hike the fee.
