Kannada actress Ramya has reportedly walked out of the movie Johny Mera Naam, which is being directed Preetham Gubbi. Sources claim that the Golden girl had earlier agreed to star alongside Duniya Vijay in the film, but she decided to stay away from the project over remuneration issue.
It is reported that Ramya had serious differences with the producers of Johny Mera Naam over the issue of remuneration. Ramya is said to have demanded Rs. 22 lacs besides separate payment for her assistants. But the film bosses were ready to give her a package of Rs. 20 lakh for the film.
Now, the film bosses are struggling to find another suitable heroine for Johny Mera Naam. They have reportedly contacted actress Aindrita Ray for the female lead in the film. But she is said to be a front runner for Vijay's another film Jarasandha, directed by Shashank.
However, it should be recalled here that this is not the first time that Ramya is opting out of a film over payment issue. She had quoted for Rs. 35 lakhs for Prakash Raj's dream project Naanu Nanna Kanasu, but she came out of the movie, when the producers offered her only Rs. 16 lakhs.
