Lead Software Engineer

Hi fellow fishes, I recently interviewed at GoJek and cleared all of the rounds. I even got a call from HR that you have been selected for the senior software engineer role. He then asked me my expected salary. Which i gave a ballpark figure of 28 Laks PA. Since then it has been 3 days and I haven't heard back. Should i call him back and quote a lower price? Need your advice here. P.S - i am from India and have around 4 years of experience. My current salary is around 15 lakhs pa.
