For all those who think, Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra never pay the stars their market price and coax them to work at concessional rates because their films usually guarantee success, this bit of information should serve as an eye-opener. The Chopras have distributed bonus to the entire team of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, and that includes the lead actors of the film. Imran Khan was pleasantly surprised to receive a cheque for Rs. 2 crore on the success of his latest film. Katrina Kaif was richer by a crore of rupees for having acted in the film. Rumours have it that Katrina was paid Rs. 2 crore for working in the film, and Imran Khan, Rs. 4.5 crore.
Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, released on September 9, was a success at the box-office. The film collected Rs. 26 crore (all-India net collections) in the first weekend. It went on to make Rs. 54 crore over two weeks. The film did well in the overseas circuit also.
