Naga Chaitanya is demanding higher remuneration for films after the massive success of “Majili”. Siva Nirvana directed “Majili” had collected whopping Rs 40 Cr worldwide.
After this movie’s success, he has started working for “Venky Mama” but he signed this project much before “Majili”. Hence he received normal paycheck for “Venky Mama” that also features his uncle Venkatesh Daggubati in the lead role.
He is now demanding Rs 8 Cr which is higher than his normal price of Rs 5 – 6 Cr. Asian Cinemas that announced a film with Naga Chaitanya in the direction of Sekhar Kammula recently paid such huge remuneration to the Akkineni star. This is the reason why Chaitanya preferred Kammula’s movie over Dil Raju’s production.
Sekhar Kammula will begin a love story with Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi from September first week and ready it for Valentine’s day. The movie will be set in the backdrop of Hyderabad.
