Revealing that he earned Rs 70,000 for the Luv Ranjan directorial, quoted by Bollywood Shaadis, he said, “Pyaar Ka Punchnama wasn’t Rs 1 crore. It was Rs 70,000. It’s all instinct, and it’s your choices that help you shoot up through the ranks. I didn’t make that much even for Sonu, I started making money only after Sonu… Those days, I used to worry a lot about TDS. The tax would already be deducted from my paychecks. I made Rs 63,000 for Pyaar Ka Punchnama after taxes. TDS used to really worry me. I remember making Rs 1,500 for my first ad, and Rs 70,000 for the first film. And now, I’ve climbed up to this number.” ALSO READ: Kartik Aaryan's Weight-Loss Journey For Chandu Champion Is FAKE! Netizens Feel Actor Photoshopped His Old Pic To Look Fat
