That’s a whopping sum of amount that Rohit Shetty got paid for his next directorial venture. Producer Sangeeta Ahir has signed Rohit Shetty for Rs. 25 crore and that’s apparently the highest sum paid to any Bollywood director. The film is going to be a remake Tamil movie ‘Soodhu Kavvum’.

Confirming this news, Sangeeta Ahir told DNA, “Yes, we have paid Rohit an exorbitant price. It’s the highest fee given to any director, but then it works as Rohit Shetty is a huge brand in himself. It’s a comedy film and his forte, so people want to see it. Right now, it is still in the scripting stage. We haven’t approached any actor as yet. I am waiting for Rohit to return from Hyderabad where he’s shooting for Dilwale and then we will finalise everything.”

Now, that’s going to be an interesting project.
