Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has grabbed the largest paid ad deal for himself. As per a newspaper, following other actors footsteps, Aamir Khan has left everybody behind as he reportedly charged Rs 88 crore when signing up for an endorsement agreement.
“After Aamir Khan ended his contract for his previous commercial brand endorsements during the shoot of his TV show with a social message, this is the first ad he has done for a commercial brand. He is careful about choosing endorsements and when the company offered him the deal, he took his own time to sign it. After the initial talks, he quoted a huge amount of Rs 88 crore,” the insider said.
“Aamir’s fee appears to be mindboggling but the brand wanted to shoot a series of ads with him. They were looking forward to a change in their strategy and hence agreed to rope in Aamir even at such a high cost. They are eagerly waiting to see if the sales figures have shown growth after the actor came on board,” the source added.
Aamir Khan has already endorses brands like Parle, Coca-Cola, Tata Sky, Samsung and Godrej.
