Director Priyadarshan and producer Ratan Jain are at loggerheads
over Mohanlal's remuneration in the movie Tezz.
Priyadarshan has asked producer Ratan Jain to pay Rs 1 crore to
Mohanlal for doing a cameo in Tezz.
Producer Ratan Jain is extremely miffed with Priyadarshan for
asking him to pay a whooping Rs 1 crore to Mohanlal for a small
role in Tezz. Ratan is of the opinion that the money is
too much to pay for an actor who has not much market in
Speaking to a leading tabloid, Priyadarshan made clear that
superstar Mohanlal does not come cheap. The director further added
that getting paid less in Bollywood would spoil Mohanlal's market
Since Mohanlal is not very comfortable speaking in Hindi,
Priyadarshan turned his character into a South Indian so that his
Malayalam accent wouldn't be a problem.
Do you think Mohanlal deserves to be paid Rs 1 crore for a cameo
in a Bollywood flick?
