Tamanna Bhatia, Trisha Krishnan, Anushka Shetty and Ileana D'Cruz are highest paid actresses in Telugu film industry. Now, actress Samantha, who has got rave reviews for her performance in Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu, has joined the league. According to reports, she is being paid a biggest amount of money as remuneration to act in young tiger Junior NTR's upcoming movie.
Samantha's demand has shot up after the huge success of Eega. Although she has been flooded with several offers, she has picked hardly a few of them. Now, reports suggest that she is offered a package of Rs 1.25 crore, which is next to that of Ileana D'Cruz, who charged Rs 1.5 crore for Snehithudu. Her remuneration suddenly got increased after producers Dil Raju and Bellamkonda Suresh vied for her dates.
It is reported that Dil Raju and Bellamkonda Suresh are producing two different movies with Junior NTR and both the producers approached her to act opposite the same hero. But Samantha has reportedly accepted the offer of Bellamkonda Suresh, who has agreed to pay Rs 1.25 crore for his much-hyped project.
But a close friend of Samantha has denied the reports saying that it is a baseless rumour. He adds that the actress herself does not know how this rumour started and these figures are just unbelievable. However, she will do films of both Dil Raju and Bellamkonda Suresh back-to-back.
