A few hits in Tamil and Telugu and countable films in Bollywood with little success seem to have made Kajal Aggarwal hike her remuneration! The Thuppakki girl has quoted an exorbitant price to pair up with Jayam Ravi in one of his forthcoming movies.
Jayam Ravi, who is busy with multiple projects, will be doing dual roles in Suraaj's next movie. The director has signed actress Anjali to play the second fiddle in the movie. For the main female lead character, his first choice was Trisha Krishnan. However, the makers of the film changed their minds because she has already teamed up with Ravi in two films.
They decided to cast a new face. In the mean time, the producer wanted to cut down on the budget and asked Suraaj to choose an actress, who fits their budget. So, this made the director opt for Kajal Aggarwal for the main female lead, who demanded Rs. 1.50 crores to act in the film!
The producer was not expecting it from her as his assumption was that she could hardly demand a crore considering her recent success and her movies in hand. Now, he is in search of a different actress. Well, on the slideshow, know about the top five highly-paid actresses in Tamil.
Nayantara remains as the undisputed queen of South. She has continued to get the highest paycheques from the last few years. Her current salary is Rs.2 crores.
