Superstar Mahesh Babu is one of the most popular actors in India and he has been ranked No 2 in the top 10 positions on 2012's India's most desirable man. Back-to-back success of his latest releases like Dookudu, Businessman and Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu is the best example for his growing popularity. The latest buzz in the T-Town is that the actor has hiked his remuneration for his next movie.
Soon after Prabhas' starrer Mirchi became a Blockbuster at the Box Office, it was rumoured that writer-turned-director Koratala Siva would direct Mahesh Babu in his second directorial venture. Reports suggest that Prince has agreed to star in his upcoming movie, which will be produced by UTV Motion Pictures. The actor has reportedly quoted Rs 20 crores as his payment for this yet-to-be titled film.
It is not clear whether UTV Motion Pictures has agreed to pay Mahesh Babu this hefty sum for the film. However, the actor is currently busy shooting for director Sukumar's upcoming movie 1: Nenokkadine. After completing Srinu Vaitla's Aagadu, he is expected to take Koratala Siva's project, which is likely to hit the floor in the mid of 2014.
