Gone are the days when high end remunerations were meant only for heroes and directors. Today, even heroines are demanding quite a bit. Though this culture is yet to spread fully in Tollywood, it must be said that the likes of Tamannah, Kajal Agarwal and others are already touching Rs 1.5 crores.
Amidst this, one sexy siren who has received Rs 50 lakhs is considered the costliest heroine. She is none other than Shriya Saran. It is heard that Shriya got this amount for her bilingual venture titled ‘Chandra’ which is being made in Kannada and Tamil. With this, she is the most expensive actress of Sandalwood.
While that is a great achievement there, it may not be so for Shriya personally. For someone who has worked with the likes of Rajnikanth, Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna etc, Shriya’s profile is far higher but when bad time is running nothing much can be done. Her receding opportunities and lack of offers landed her with ‘Chandra’ and Shriya is making the most of it now.
Chandra is a Period-fantasy Tamil-Kannada bilingual film directed by Roopa Iyer. Featuring Shriya, Ganesh Venkatram and Prem Kumar in the lead roles. The film deals with the life of a last generation princess and her love story. Chandra is a joint production of India Classic Arts and Listo Media Entertainment Pvt Ltd.
