Yo Yo Honey Singh has charged Rs. 70 lakh for a song in Sunil Bohra’s Mastaan, starring Naseerudin Shah and his younger son Vivaan. It is the biggest amount paid to a song artist in Bollywood till date.
The film’s producer Sunil Bohra confirms that Honey Singh has been roped in with a hefty fee. Honey has become a household name after International Villager. I instantly fell in love with the song (that Singh composed and he plans to feature in the movie) as soon as I heard it. Though he wanted to launch that song as one of his own big hits, now, it will prove a game changer for my movie. I feel Rs. 70 lakh is less for it … I would have signed him for more if it was required he says.
Bohra has decided to shoot two videos of the song one for the movie and the other, featuring Honey Singh, for the promotions.
