Brand endorsements have always been a major source of income for many celebrities all over the world. While they are considered add-ons, the income that these endorsements generate has been very impressive.
To ensure that the brand has the most relatable and loved celebrity as the face of the brand, there is a lot of competition for it. To ensure they are able to bag the celeb they want, they offer exuberant amounts to these celebs.
But not always does a celeb takes on the deal. Despite the money they are offered, they choose to keep the humanitarian side in check at all times.
